alpha 4 largeImportant note:

- All prior settings are reset by this version. This is due to a change within our file format.

New:

- Added the hub world from where every run will start and from where the skill tree is accessible
- Added permanent skill tree (accessible from the hub world)
- Added 13 of the 29 skills
- Added dialogs to the NPCs (they don't have that many lines for now, but the system is fully implemented, hence it'll be easy to add more as we go)
- Added portal to next level when beating the boss (which brings back to the hub for now)
- Added Altar of Blood sounds
- The game now saves your progress (skill points and unlocked skills)
- Added button prompts to tutorial
- Added more juice to the boss HP bar
- Added a setting to disable to the low HP blinking background feedback
- Added a demo mode: using the "-demo" launch parameter will run the game in a demo state with exit and settings disabled, as well as load/save being disabled and defaulting the game with 3 skill points available. The demo can be reset with F3.
