It is possible to turn the cookie into a cookie with a grandma face on it. Copy this code into the console:
There are many things that are hidden within the source code of Cookie Clicker in the forms of comments, whether it is plain code commentary, unofficial features, or even a poem. The following are some of the notable ones. To access the source code, go to http://orteil.dashnet.org/cookieclicker/main.js
Right after the definition of each upgrade relating to the types of grandmas, there's a line of what possibly could be a poem:
It is not easy to pick out the lines, so here it is:
I remember the first time I saw her, amidst the cookie crops. (Farmer grandmas)These lines were removed in v2, so none exist for Banker grandmas, Priestess grandmas, Witch grandmas, or Rainbow grandmas.
Her eyes like a burning furnace; my heart like a racing engine. (Worker grandmas)
It was as if she could pierce through me, burrow at my deepest. (Miner grandmas)
In that moment, the universe felt empty, save for just her and me. (Cosmic grandmas)
I could feel it growing in me. Changing me... making me something else, something better. (Transmuted grandmas)
There was no way she was of this world. Her very mind was... alien, pervasive; a distortion of the real thing. (Altered grandmas)
She was not what I had first assumed; she was from another time, another eon altogether. (Grandmas' grandmas)
And with her hair... sparkling like starlight... she whispered something. (Antigrandmas)
Funny commentEditAfter the line of code which causes the lifetime of each Golden Cookie in a Cookie chain to decrease, there appears to be a comment from Orteil expressing his amusement: "//this is hilarious".
There are some features that are in the source code but are never released. The following is what seems like a switchable milk and background upgrades that can be changed in the menu. (Switcheable milk already added, in version 2.0)
There also seems to be a "Gold switch" upgrade that can be toggled in the menu. It stops golden cookie from spawning but gives you a passive CpS boost. (Switch implemented in version 2.0)
Along with the series of achievements related to resetting, this seems to be the next one in line, but Orteil "yanked your chain." The achievement was later added under the name "Dematerialize".
Golden Cookie BlabEdit
The rarest result by far for either the Golden Cookie or the Wrath Cookie is the Cookie Blab, so dubbed by Orteil in the source code, with a 0.0002925% chance for the Golden Cookie. This result has no in-game effect, but gives one of the following funny lines.
- Cookie crumbliness x3 for 60 seconds!
- Chocolatiness x7 for 77 seconds!
- Dough elasticity halved for 66 seconds!
- Golden cookie shininess doubled for 3 seconds!
- World economy halved for 30 seconds!
- Grandma kisses 23% stingier for 45 seconds!
- Thanks for clicking!
- Fooled you! This one was just a test.
- Golden cookies clicked +1!
- Your click has been registered. Thank you for your cooperation.
- Thanks! That hit the spot!
- Oops. This was just a chocolate cookie with shiny aluminum foil.
- Thank you. A team has been dispatched.
- They know.
