Added DiffLines:

* CreatorCameo: Ben Howard appears frequently throughout the game.


Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: The slot machine minigame, where the player ''can'' obtain the remote required to beat the game, but the chances of this happening are impossibly slim as the machine will usually be rendered inaccessible by one of the toons' many traps.


Added DiffLines:

* NoFourthWall: The game loves to exploit this trope, with the toons often tricking you into believing you've crashed the program, interacting with your ''cursor'', and Ben Howard appearing in random places of the game.


Added DiffLines:

* VocalDissonance: Fiddle is revealed to have a baritone voice in the end credits, the complete opposite of his voice throughout the rest of the game.

* AuthorAvatar: Ben Howard, the game's programmer, appears in the game and even gives you some advice at the beginning of the game while you're channel surfing. Unsurprisingly, the toons stop him from revealing too much.
