:blob_gnikniht: cheat codes cheapen the authenticity of the art of the game

:blobcoffee: cheat codes are an invaluable tool not only in dev but also on the user end, whether simply to access already-paid-for content or to resolve any number of technical or logistical problems that no developer can hope to anticipate without the most draconian & self-limiting of walled garden setups

:blobaww: cheat codes cut away distraction & delay, revealing the authentic fulness of the game's artistic merit

decided to put my money where my mouth was.

azarg now has a godmode and a customizable overworld size (64x64 to 512x512).

@carcinopithecus :galaxy_brain: cheat codes devalue the struggle that is a fundamental part of the human condition, and is akin to rich people losing empathy to really appreciate the struggles of ordinary humans

@szbalint sometimes your save corrupts so you gotta restart but skip the happy parts


Cheat codes are a deeper connection with someone's art, a hand beckoning from behind a curtain, an invitation to break curfew, to steal a rose out of a vase.
