Sure you can!  
Build your world from the source tree
'worldBuilder.self' _RunScript 
start morphic with: 
and open your outliner with: 
desktop worlds first addMorph:
(selfObjectModel newOutlinerFor: (reflect: 'Hello, World!') InWorld:
desktop worlds first) 
No snapshots required. 
As for saving state, just
do it the same way you would in Java, Python, Ruby etc etc. Create a
file and dump your important state into it in whatever format you feel
