Abandoned SNES Rayman Prototype Has Been Released Online (VIDEO)
For those who enjoy a good SNES classic title, an exciting new development has been revealed online. Recently, a leaked prototype of an abandoned SNES version of Rayman was uploaded by developer Omar Cornut, founder of Lizardcube. Cornut, who is known for his creation of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remaster, posted a link to a Dropbox download for the prototype version of the game, which can be found through a recent post on his Twitter account.
The prototype was uploaded by Cornut after he received permission from Rayman creator Michel Ancel. For those who are curious on what the SNES version of the game looks like, check out the video below to see a brief glimpse of the game in action:
Fans who wish to download the prototype for Rayman will need to use an SNES emulator to run it. However, it is important to note that the file isn’t a full-fledged game. “It’s a really early demo, not really a playable game,” Cornut warns. “According to old screenshots and reports it did grow to a more fully fledged game but a later version wasn’t found yet.” While this may seem somewhat disappointing to learn, this Rayman prototype is a nice little nod to the classics, and allows gamers the chance to play the little guy on another platform.
