Prototype/prerelease build of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver for the PlayStation from 1999-02-04 (about 5 months before the game was released).

Notes

  • This prototype features early versions of most areas, as well as two major deleted areas (Undercity and Lair/Morlock).
  • This build does not include save/load capability, but you can access all of the game world using a combination of the debugging menu and fast movement.
  • Press square + circle to open the debugging menu.
  • Hold start and use the D-pad to use fast/vertical movement.
  • Target TK projectiles by holding triangle, then also pressing and holding L2 + R2 to enter lookaround mode. Fire by releasing triangle. They don't affect many objects in this build, but break some windows and open some doors.
  • Target possession projectiles the same as TK projectiles, but using O instead of triangle. These don't seem to do anything in this build.
  • Trigger some unfinished events by pressing triangle + X.
  • Includes full debugging symbols.
