Debug Features

Cheat Debug

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Is there anything else that it can do?

Allows you to toggle cheat(s) on or off. Interestingly the default cheat shown on screen is Mrs. Crabtree who isn't available in this build or the final game by normal means.

Soak Test

Starts a self-playing game with a timer on the screen. Presumably used to check for any issues when played for an extended period of time.
