Aye, that makes a lot of sense. I love the trees forming some kind of skywall around the room... what is with that? They are clearly drawn on top of the walls, not as part of the sky ceiling, as they wrap around rather than stay on a straight horizon.
Maybe the trees surround the level and continue beyond the walls?

This is not directly related to what is going on with 3D Realms at the moment but it can go in the same thread for all that I care :P

Did we get anything interesting as far as retro Apogee goes or was it all 3DRealms era stuff? It seemed like Interceptor might have rare old betas/etc but I didn't see anything come out of that long thread..

Gracias, Calvero! I saw some old BioMenace title screens with the silver font but it's way cooler to see this one.. Now, will this one ever be more than a Siegler-esque teaser..

OH WOW! Thanks for showing this!

This is so cool that I've extracted some screenshots from the video:

Early beta from Hocus Pocus?!?

This looks like Indiana Jones:
Image

OK Duke Nukem 2 beta!
Image

Image

Seem that background has been improved in the final version. The HUD interface not so much IMO.
Image

Ice Ice baby? This early Crystal Caves looks intriguing!
Image

Raptor beta? Not looking bad. I wonder why that didn't lasted in the final game:
Image

And Major Stryker beta!
Image

For comparison the final version:
Image
Most notably the font has changed and also there's no "night" mode in this level.

It's actually from "Alabama Smith and the Bloodfire Pendant" (the title screen is in that video, too), originally intended to be the sequel to Paganitzu, but it evenutally became Realms of Chaos. Just in case you didn't know. 8)

Wow, the HUD was a lot more colorful and interesting. But maybe playtesters found it distracting? who knows... :evil

Also of note, Duke's eyebrows. I can see why that was removed.
