E3old.png

This page contains every prototype on Hidden Palace that was built for the E3 trade show. Useful if you have a bunch of systems/CRTs and wish to recreate the entire E3 show floor in your game room for any given year.

Disclaimer: Some builds featured here were not playable on a show floor kiosk, but rather were distributed to attendees at the event (usually in the form of a press kit).

If you are aware of any E3 demos not on Hidden Palace, please link on Hidden Palace to help consolidate.
