Pre-alpha promotional material and artifacts

Post by Dead Reckoner » Wed Feb 12, 2020 5:29 pm

Trying to find more ancient Blood material that was cut by the time of the alpha leak.

From the "CD-ROM Multimedia Magazine" interview with Richard Grey about level design. The screamshots look very inviting and feature early iterations of a few monsters. Excavated by Chronicle Commando on discord.

I don't remember who originally found this, but it features another screamshot of the black phantasm, from a Polish magazine.

That's a really cool find, an excellent piece of history. Kudos to whomever made the scans.

I think it's probably safe to say I'm in love with the Black Phantasm.

Most likely because up until when I first saw these screens on Discord some time ago, I had never even heard of it's existence.

The third screen also shows the skinny zombie, which got recycled as the hanged corpse.

Somewhere sprites for it should exist. We'll probably be never see them, but one can dream.

They still exist. Pre-alpha versions of Blood most likely have them. Hendricks266 has those builds, but due licenses, whatnot, they cannot be released unless someone who owns Blood says yes (which is never).

Which is the same reason why we're never going to see the actual Source Code released because this is also one of the reasons why copyrights is such a bullshit concept that only hinders innovation to make way for profits (or worse it benefits nobody) special thanks to our capitalist society of course.
