A prototype of Alias for the PlayStation 2.

Notes

  • An NTSC build from about four months before the final game.
  • There is a language select despite being an NTSC build.
  • Music plays from the moment the language select appears, rather than only once the title screen is reached.
  • The game boots straight into story cutscenes after selecting a language and flicking through the company logos, before reaching the title screen. The cutscenes are clearly missing a lot of sound effects.
  • What would normally be the "Credits" option on the main menu is instead an "Extras" menu, with the ability to play the credits or view a "Trailer", which just happens to be a promotional trailer for the game.
  • The credits are very incomplete.
  • The loading screens are unfinished.
  • The main menu music is different.
  • The cutscenes seen after starting a new game do not display correctly.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Yes (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
