In the game folder there is a handy file named “variables.ini”.
It contains, well, variables for basically anything that requires a variable.
While variable names are more or less self-explanatory in most cases, dev comments are written in Russian.
Translating those might (or not) give some insight for our English-speaking friends.
Variable without comments are not featured in this guide.

If some of those comments don’t make sense in English – do not worry, they are not making sense in Russian either.
Given the pattern of typos and grammar errors both in comments and in-game text, I suspect that developer’s native language is Bulgarian. Russian was probably used just for communication between developers.
