Seattle Indie Expo alpha Build 18.01

I think the big things of note are SAVING and loading games are now a fully featured thing. If you make it to the bar and die you will load into the bar. if you die and haven't made it there yet, you will start at your home. Try to walk in the door of the bar if you can. 

I overhauled the textbox system as well. MUCH more satisfying to engage with. 

Also, the FOOD system is starting to make its way into the game! WAYY more coming with this.
