Unused Death

Normally, after growing the man-eating plant with radioactive water, the player is supposed to use a can of pepsi to calm it enough to climb it to the observatory. However, by using debug the player can skip this and access the room above. If the player then leaves down the hatch, they will disappear and be eaten by the plant. This suggests that originally the player could climb the plant prematurely before giving it the pepsi, resulting in a death. It is unknown why this was removed.
