A Short Hike – Cheat Codes

Keyboard cheat codes for A Short Hike.


Hey! Since this is a single player game it should be okay to reveal the cheats in this game. Some may be neat for speed-running or experimenting, some are fun to try out after you finished the game.
First be sure to enable cheat codes by writing the following cammand on your keyboard:

  • cheatsplz

You should see a little toast in the upper left corner afterwards.

Besides the cheat codes I enlisted here, I’ve found some that seem to be used for development which I omitted from this guide as they don’t offer much.

Caution: There is a leaderboard for the beachstickball game and some cheats disable participation for the particular save file you’re playing on. You can make a backup of your save file by going to “%appdata%/../LocalLow/adamgryu/A Short Hike” and creating a copy of the file “GameSaveNew.mountain”.
