Portal Mortal beta hits version 0.8.0 and last public version before full release!

Hi there, internet!

This has to be one of the juiciest patches so far! In terms of added content (that is mostly disabled) and all those fine tunings and fixes here and there... This is, yet again, THE patch. Technically, the game is so close being finished that I expect most of the time being now at final level design and story. Still, it feels like an enormous mountain to climb. So close, yet so far. Time is running out, yet there's plenty of it.
