Build Number

A file named version simply contains the number "273".

XML

Game completion percentage is referred to as "stars", while amount of chroma cameras collected are referred to as "shards", potentially indicating that Blob was originally intended to collect shards of the Chroma Crystal rather than the odd final choice of Chroma Cameras. (menus/LevelSelect.xml)

During development, there was a debug option to skip splash screens by pressing L (menus/menu_splash1.xml)
