A prototype of Kya: Dark Lineage for the PlayStation 2.


  • A few selected scenarios are playable
  • By writing 0x01 to address 06F15B1 in the EE RAM, an extended version of the pause menu can be unlocked, featuring things like saving and loading functions, an options menu, and a Cheat options menu similar to the one in the September 29 build.
  • The cheat menu allows to: disable E3DemoMode, which disables the triggers that end the demo segments when reaching certain parts of the maps; enable flying (initiated with R2+R3); enable invincibility; and open all the shell elevators. It also features a submenu from which the player can teleport to any world
  • This version features all the worlds from the final game, including the ones not featured in the demo segments (apart from the secret LEVEL_13), all of which are in different stages of completion and resemblance to the worlds in the final game
  • The general design of the HUD is very different from the final game, being more cartoonish. The design of the models of Kya, the Wolfuns and the other enemies, as well as the music tracks and audio effects are very close to the final game
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Yes (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
