Start of the game
The player starts off with the Candy counter and the classic button "Eat all the Candies" with the keyboard shortcut of "E". After the player recieves 10 or more candies the player gets the button "Throw 10 candies on the ground" with the shortcut "T". After throwing 1630 candies you earn a chocolate bar. However, if the player has the patience and recieves more than 30 candies, a new button appears "Request a new feature to the developer (30 candies)". Once the player clicks this button, a status bar is unlocked above, and replaces the button with "Request another one (5 candies)". After you click this button you are able to change the language on the status bar, and when the player clicks "Request once again (5 candies)", a save tab appears, and another button "Request for something more exicting (5 candies) you recieve a health bar. Once the player clicks "Final request! This one has to be worth the candies. (10 candies)" you recieve a map tab in the status bar.
