Checkpoint Intimates: The Cheat Codes Eulogy

Posted on November 16, 2018

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. This week, Elliot and Cameron reminisce about the age of cheat codes. Born from the need to give developer tools up until release many games from our youth that didn’t have day one patches would publish their cheat codes to give players a bit of fun to go along with their main game. Elliot give us a history lesson on why cheat codes started to diminish as well as what some of his favourites were and the magazines that used to publish them. Meanwhile Cameron blows Elliot’s mind when he reveals there used to be Cheat Code Hotlines you could ring, for a small fortune, and has trouble remembering any cheat codes apart from big head mode in every game.
