Once Ever After 0.4.0 (Full Plot Release)

Backers on Patreon and SubscribeStar now have access to a build of Once Ever After that is plot and gameplay complete. The final version will need more parallax maps and will get more polish, but this one is the first release that's a full game. There's a lot included:

0.4.0 Changes
- Final plot update
- All sex scenes added
- All chibi scenes added
- Placeholder music replaced with 53 new non-RTP tracks
- Replaced all 30 RTP default sound effects with unique ones
- All custom battlebacks
- All custom NPC faces, edited NPC sprites
- Brand new fancy title screen
- New windows and menu format
- Non-RTP equipment icons
- Custom balloon/emotion icons
- 95% of battle animations replaced with non-RTP animations
- Attacks in combat now include sprite movement
- Placeholder battlers all removed, many unique battlers commissioned
- Misc tweaks: different treasure acquisition, new battle results plugin, new fonts, etc

I have been working on this in the background for several years and it feels very rewarding to finally complete the main creative work. I'm not sure how long it will be until the final release, but there will be no 0.5.0 and so on... the next major release will be 1.0.0.

Work on this will take me a while yet, but as soon as it's done, the next priority is TLS 0.56.0.
