// All future change-logs will use ASCII styling + sudo-code for more intuitive information architecture.
// Induction of 'Version Brief' within each change-log to know the primary focal intent of said update to simulation.
// Change-log in order of: Least recent action to Most recent action OF Added/Changed/Removed - per section

Technical Vocabulary:
[I/O Event] = A scripted event or object that will cause changes in your M.A.D. Dynamics, their in effecting your interface feedback (e.g.) drink coffee or not drink coffee, take train or take bus.
[MAD Dynamic] = A system that represents your Mood, Anxiety, Depression percentage within the game via the player interface (e.g.) MAD % UP –> Vibrate screen + desaturate screen + increase breathing sound + slow speed.
[Agenda Event] = Actions asked of the player to take, sometimes with a time constraint, their in guiding the player into choke points in-game with an I/O Event. Not to be confused with an [I/O Event] that is the 'result' of said action.

Version Brief:
This version of IMS has been developed to bring the inclusion of I/O Events, M.A.D. Dynamics, Agenda Events. These three additions will help solidify the rich learning experience of IMS once they become active in the next version.
