I know valve said they canned it because it would've fell short of being a fun game, but I still think the concept is solid. I remember people were talking about things like the pyro having a semi-realistic flamethrower that caused flames to spew out from the point of impact and fill rooms like bunkers to clear them out, but if he was shot in the back, his flame tank would hiss and explode.

Things like needing a spotter for sniping and engineers being able to supply ammo/maintenance to heavy weapons guys to speed up reloads/barrel changes were pretty cool too.

A lot of that is in the game in some form or fashion though.

>Sprites all exist with some minor changes to infantry.
>Voxel based vehicles retain their shape but get more detail (bottom part of the artillery/MRLS)

I don't recognize the NOD double barrel tank though.

There were a lot of features that didn't make it in the game though, like light level affecting fog of war and weapon range, spotlights helping counter that, and garrisonable buildings to make city fighting primarily the domain of infantry.

Fuck I would have loved lighter red colored infantry for nod. They look so facist and dystopian on this, I love it.

Also those more pale colored muzzleflashes on the infantry that look kinda realistic, the ones in the game just looked too video-gamey (saturated yellow, red). Based on the nod soldier shooting the MRLS on the right it looks like they may have originally been planned to shoot projectiles (white laser blasts?).

Also really like the directional muzzle flash on the walker on the left, and the distinct LACK of the laser dot bs that was used for it in place of giving it a projectile. Yeah I know the 120mm probably fired an APDS but they could've used a quick sliver-shaped projectile for it instead of the ubiquitous golden dot.

It's the 1/31 sample that is the whole game complete for both characters with different enemy placements and amounts for each character, way more acid rounds for Jill, less shotgun ammo but more handgun ammo for Chris, different difficulties (besides the aforementioned amounts enemies also take way less or way more bullets), different item places and there are a different kind of ammo called dumdum rounds for the magnum, you only get one ink ribbon at a time and it is also used like the MO Disk, and there are only 3 crests to open the back door.

The list of features they had stripped out was insane, and all of it was perfectly doable and had been done in all of the previous games (minus VIII because fuck that one, too).

The back of the box on Ultima VII bothered me, too. I never once saw that giant turtle pull up next to a building like that. I'm guessing it was from beta or development.

The sad truth about prototypes is that many of them are either final/effectively final or approaching it. Very early and very different prototypes are rather uncommon to find, and you can probably multiply that by a few factors if it is a first party Nintendo game. If a prototype of the first generation games were ever found, chances are it would be a final version prototype, an in-development localization, or a mostly complete preview ROM that might have a few minor differences. All cool, surely, but the chances of tracking down a drastically different or very incomplete Japanese version are quite slim. And if one ever showed up somewhere, you can bet that mouthbreathing clickbait writers would hype the shit out of it to the point that it would either sell to a moneybags hoarder or Nintendo would step in and have the listing closed.

That's because the dude in charge of Pokemon art and design started phoning it in (and straight-up ran out of ideas around Gen V). Pokemon should have stopped with the DS at the very very latest.

Pokemon has multiple designers. The core artist criticized the Pokemon was getting overcomplicated in design during gen 5. That's why they make few new ones and make them less full of lines and stuff like the first gen. Gens 6 and 7 designs are mostly minimalist.

not to mention most gen 6-7 mons are designed in a way that fully exploits their 3D nature and the more complex animations. Stuff like Aegislash changing from shield to sword, Mimikyu's dummy neck breaking, the Tapus closing their shells and others would have looked kind of awkward in old gen graphics.

Pokemon in your army could had died as well. Mirage Pokemon who rarely appear could be in the grass before trading and mythicals existed. Also most of the game in early stage was monsters or monster animals. Think house size godzillas.

That's Gen III art. This is Gen I art. It has less to do with the artstyle itself, and more to do with the way it was colored, it looks like a watercolor painting.
