Players will now be able to see each other's characters in realtime when they're online at the same time. Characters enter and leave locations and you can start talking to them by simply entering text inside quotes in the command line. The conversations are saved and shown in memories (where you can also asynchronously reply to them later).
The last feature I need before I can release this to alpha players is to show when characters have been writing in their journals, so you can read and comment on them. At that point the functionality of the current PixelBoy will be recreated and I can push the update and we can finally start using (and breaking) the new journals.
