Countdown: 1 week to alpha

Hi friends!

In anticipation of alpha, this week saw a lot of clean-up on “game-breaking” bugs, those that would prevent you advancing the game during the alpha. This is the last pre-alpha build, next week we’ll move straight into the alpha!

This version (0.5.9) was pushed to Steam over the weekend, so if you happen to be one of the lucky few that already have a key, you can test it out.
