Due to the incredibly bad feedback I've been receiving I've decided to scrap the Chrono Project entirely and reuse the game's code to make a promotional game for Scrap_and_Topheavy.
I'm sorry, the previous paragraph was a lie, I actually implemented a cheat menu, that among other things allows you to swap out the main character for some novelty ones.
I've received a lot of requests for including some cheat codes from players, and a few of my accomplices wanted to have a debug menu to skip to different parts of the game.
The cheat menu satisfies both requests at once. I'll make sure to lock it away in the final version of the game.
