Does StarCraft 2 feature cheat codes? If so do codes vary between Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm? Are there penalties for using cheat codes?

Possible examples:

  • God mode
  • Unlock entire tech tree
  • Infinite resources
  • Infinite pool

I'm not sure if cheat codes vary between WoL and HoTS, but on the StarCraft 2 blog in December 2010 Blizzard admitted to there being cheats in StarCraft 2:

Cheat codes can only be used in single-player mode by pressing the enter key within the game and typing in the codes as shown below within the console.

Caution: Before using cheat codes it’s important to understand that using them will prevent additional achievement gains you might have earned through normal play until either a new campaign is started or a prior save is loaded (one from before the use of the first cheat).

A similar list of Heart of the Swarm cheats can be found on IGN so it does appear that there is some overlap.
