This post is brought to you by metal.

Moved the story data into a Config like file, we can have nested sections. It proves to show how much neater it all looks!

Notably I got line-of-sight working with the fog. It was an exciting moment.

Old animations config:

animations = {
    # flat small blue terminal
    41: {
            'frames': [41, 42],
            'fps': 0.2,
            'loop': -1,
            },
    # flat large blue terminal
    43: {
            'frames': [43, 44],
            'fps': 0.3,
            'loop': -1,
            },

New configuration:

[ animations ]

    [[ flat small blue terminal ]]
    gid = 41
    frames = 41, 42
    fps = 0.2
    loop = -1

    [[ flat large blue terminal ]]
    gid = 43
    frames = 43, 44
    fps = 0.3
    loop = -1

There is a new main screen

Terminal views are now full screen

The dialogue system was reworked, it is now as smooth as silk. You can even skip transition effects and dialogues, something that bothered me before.
