The game is fun but sometimes confusing and frustrating to unlock things. Instead of trying to find something in one particular map for a couple hours, you can just simply unlock the character with a simple line of words.

I do this not because Judgement is hard, but because it's boring af to repeat the same scripted trial fifteen times. Horrible design choice for a roguelike.

Can someone just post the ENTIRE save file so we can just copy and paste the entire thing?
Torret_Rainlizard Jan 5 @ 10:37am 
nvm it does
Torret_Rainlizard Jan 4 @ 2:32pm 
does this count for achievements?

Unfortunately, this code does not work.

For anyone curious, I'm 90% sure this is the challenge for robomando. "challenge_unlock_robomando_completed"
Grave Lurker Dec 1, 2023 @ 5:08pm 
ok, so how do I get the edit to stick? Ive added the robomando code, made sure to copy paste it, put it after the flags, added the comma, then saved the file, but nothing happens, what am I doing wrong?
Buffoo Pengoo Nov 27, 2023 @ 11:16pm 
Could we get an edit to the original post possibly containing item unlocks as well?
Pedrin Nov 26, 2023 @ 7:53pm 
Someone please explain where exactly I paste the character unlock ones?
