* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: When you first reach Nefroburg, Connie will try to guide you to her house to meet her mother, Rosemary. If you choose to run off into the rest of the city and do an activity that advances the time to night (eg. battling at the arena, playing billiards, etc.), you'll find a cutscene with Connie at the bridge just past her house. She'll be upset that you ignored her, though much like every other option in the game, this has no effect on the main storyline.

* BraggingRightsReward: Once you've found all the billiards players in the game, at the menu screen you can do the "Hustler King" challenge. If you beat all 14 billiards players ''in a row'' without losing, you get the Demon Cue; supposedly once owned by a demon which acts exactly like a normal cue. (And there ''are'' other magical pool cues in the game that are easier to get, and have special powers.)

* HowUnscientific: While there is a ghost or two; for the most part the game follows the rural-to-industrial revolution steampunk setting. And then there's the billiards mini-game; where there are legendary pool cues that are literally magical.

* BookEnds: [[spoiler: After the end of the game, you have one last mission : find the various members of the Garland Globetrotters, one year after Vanilla left. For doing this, you have to travel to every location you visited during the main game, in the reverse order of how you got there. You finally reunite with Connie on the very beach where Vanilla awakened on at the start of the game.]]

** [[spoiler: If you pursue the good ending and refuse to join the Bloody Mantis (or rejoin the Garland Globetrotters after joining the Bloody Mantis), the final boss battle will take place on the beach where Vanilla awakened at the start of the game, the same place where Dandelion tried to kill him early on.]]

Said to be like VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto [[LighterAndSofter if you removed every shred of psychopathy from the mix]], SteambotChronicles offers a cheery CelShaded world with a massive amount of {{SideQuest}}s, {{MiniGame}}s, [[VirtualPaperDoll fashion]], [[RhythmGame music]], and myriad other ways to completely waste your time. The game has a massive array of choices, [[DialogueTree from what Vanilla says]], [[VirtualPaperDoll to what Vanilla wears]], [[StoryBranching to what Vanilla does]], ninety percent of which does not actually matter as far as plot is concerned, but are quite effective as a means to... [[NowWhereWasIGoingAgain completely waste your time.]]

* NintendoHard: The instruments, believe it or not. While the Harmonica and Trumpet are so simple you could play them with one hand (almost), things like the Accordian, Organ, Piano, and Electic Guitar will likely test even some of the die hard RockBand players.

* GuideDangIt: You will not be able to get 100% on your first try. Items can be LostForever, quests can become {{Unwinnable}}, and the game can become NintendoHard when trying to find all the trotmobile parts, plates, '''children's story books''', instruments and so on.

* GatlingGood: There's a Gatling Gun available as a secret weapon through an optional quest. It's powerful, but good luck finding the random gemstone drops needed to earn it.

* GottaCatchThemAll: The license plates. There's 30 of them and a few can be easily LostForever. [[BraggingRightsReward And they do nothing.]]

* InterfaceScrew: Combined with DamnYouMuscleMemory as well, a somewhat subtle example of this exists in the fossil mining aspect of the game. Every menu in the game starts with the cursor on the first menu option, except when extracting fossils, where it defaults to the bottom menu option instead. As well, there's a short input lag before the game will recognize any input on this menu and this one only, meaning that inattentive players who already know about this "feature" can easily select the bottom option anyway. And of course, there are numerous bugs surrounding fossil mining that can easily result in the Museum Plate being LostForever, including [[GuideDangIt abandoning a fossil load]]. Which is exactly what you do if you pick the bottom option.
