v.08 alpha demo devlog

This is my first official devlog for my first game of 2021 and first published game ever, Distance! This started as a quick exercise inspired by attempting to social distance from waves of people during a hike and it morphed into a full blown playable demo. The prototype started at the beginning of 2021 and took about three weeks to get to its current state. 

Originally the controls involved more D-pad mashing but after some playtesting that type of control was a little too Atari-ish and didn't seem as intuitive as I intended. So now it plays more like Ikari Warriors without all the weapons. 

There is a lot of work that needs to be done but I'm hoping to release this early alpha for your user feedback.
