Halloween is all about celebrating the mystery of the spooky unknown. While video games contain monsters and ghouls, what of the ghosts behind the industry? There are a lot of prototypes out there for both games that never released and for betas of games that eventually became something else. Resident Evil is a series with a surprising amount of footage and pictures out there, which is very rare to find.
Rather than looking at a bunch of games this writer decided, for Halloween, to focus on the bizarre history of Resident Evil prototypes. It’s the granddaddy of the survival horror genre after all. Below are links to RE trivia, beta footage, and there’s even a gallery of screenshots. While not necessarily the scariest thing to write about on Halloween, it certainly is interesting in a chilling sort of way.
- Resident Evil 0: Nintendo 64 version
- Resident Evil 1: Game Boy Color version
