An early prototype of Ecco - The Tides of Time for the Sega Mega Drive.


  • This build of the game was released by Paradox on Jun 8, 1994, oddly on the same day as the final ROM was also released on BBS. The release group was based in France, so it's likely the original cart might've originated there.
  • The ROM originally featured a scene intro which has been removed in newer releases. Because of this, there might be other parts of the ROM that have been modified.
  • Because of the prototype's origins, no known date can be associated with it. However, the date of this build would have to have taken place sometime before Apr 13, 1994.
