New snapshot

The new features are:

* Game States
* Walkpoints for sprites
* New drawing functions: sgeDrawPixel, sgeDrawLine
* Open2x support
* Syllable support

Through game states you can split your game into logical units, like main menu, game loop, load screen, etc. and easy switch between them

Walkpoints allow you to give a list of coordinates to a sprite, which it will automatically walk through at a speed you give it.
