A prototype of Spyro the Dragon for the Sony PlayStation.
The Cutting Room Floor research
- This version of the game seems to have been given dongle protection to avoid it being used in standard consoles. A patched variant of the prototype has been provided alongside the original.
- The game starts with a placeholder "Temporary Boot Screen"
- There are no intro or ending cutscenes.
- Many dragons are still missing the cutscenes and audio dialogue they'd use in the final game
- A few of the dragon dialogue audio clips are missing their backing tracks
- A number of dragons use different textures and colouring schemes to their final appearance
- All dragons in the Beast Makers world are called "Silvus"
- Gnasty Gnorc's level and Gnasty's Loot are called "Gnasty Place" and "Gnasty Booty" respectively.
- Only a small number of music tracks are in this build, apparently unchanged since the June 15th prototype.
- Gem placement is still unfinished in some places
- A glitch in the Artisans world sometimes makes it impossible to complete, as the gem count sometimes totals to a value less than 100
- Specifically, a group of gems near Town Square's portal only count towards the gem total if Sparx picks them up, rather than Spyro
- There's one extra gem in Lofty Castle for some reason
- There's still a number of noticeable gaps between polygons in some of the level models at this point in development
