Prototype Menu Graphics
Early icon and name for the act "'Heating up Mafia Town'". This image is dated May 6 2013, and shows numerous differences between it and the earliest documented Prototype build. Thor's house is mostly a blockout at this point, there is a staircase behind the factory pipes that was removed before the Goboiano Prototype, and the crane is using a placeholder cylinder model. The brick texture on the factory and center water tower is different, there's also no umbrellas above the tables on the left side, and finally, the brick texture for the building with a teal roof on the left side is different from the texture used in the Prototype builds.
Graphics for the background, which had a white polka-dot pattern.
The oldest known logos for Chapters 1 and 2. These were both used on some Prototype menus, but certain builds omitted one or both of them.
Lava Mafia Town Icons
Prototype and Alpha Number Grahpics
Loadout "Power" Graphics
Balloon Race Mafia Icon
Alpha HUD Graphics
The old HUD icon for the vaults in Mafia Town. In the final game, an icon for the corresponding color of vault code needed to open it is displayed instead. This graphic has also long since been removed from the Modding Tools.
The graphic for half of a square left on the Energy Meter.
Early Murder on the Owl Express Graphics
Graphics for a much older version of Murder on the Owl Express can be found in the earliest versions of the Modding Tools! These graphics were never seen in any prerelease screenshots or footage.
Character cards, most likely used to accuse suspects.
Science Owls are still being used in these pictures, as Express Owls weren't designed yet. The Receptionist of Dead Bird Studio is referred to in his card's filename as the Train Operator, which is the role he had in the Beta versions of the game. What's perhaps the most interesting bit of these cards is the trio of Conductors. According to localization in the Beta, there wasn't just one Conductor, there were multiple. From these cards, it seems there were at least 4, though if they had any relationship to the Conductor in the final game is unknown. The other Conductors were brothers according to localization in the Beta, and were named Gregg, Walter, and Redd. Each one wore clothes of the color of the first letter of their names, i.e.: Gregg was green. Strangely, however, Redd appears to be wearing the Conductor's normal-colored clothes. The materials for the alternate colors of the Conductor still exist in the Modding Tools, but due to changes in their parent material, they no longer change color, and just display the normal Conductor colors.
An outline graphic for each card.
All of the above graphics have long since been removed from the Modding Tools.
These graphics, however, are still in the Modding Tools. They were used in the Beta's version of Murder on the Science Express. The graphics were used when a 'round' began in the level.
These graphics could also be found in the Beta. They were used in the notebook HUD for the act, which was used to store evidence gathered. These three graphics have been removed from the Modding Tools.
A HUD icon for a collectible star item. The model for the star is still in the Modding Tools, but this icon has long since been removed. It's a very old HUD icon, given the star's cel shading and that it could be found hidden within the Alpha builds' files.
The scrapped Frozen Solid Badge, which was turned into its own Hat in the final game. This could also be found in the Beta. The design of this cut Badge would eventually be used for the design of a flair for the Ice Hat in the Vanessa's Curse Creator's DLC.
A weapon icon for being unarmed. In the final game, no graphic is displayed on the 'Weapons' area of the loadout menu until you get your Umbrella. This graphic has long since been removed from the Modding Tools.
Updated Beta Loading Screen Graphics
Almost all of the graphics for the loading screen used in the Beta versions of the game are present, along with some additional graphics that weren't used in that version of the game.
The loading screen's background, along with a different planet graphic for every location, except Sand 'n Sails. In the actual Beta builds, a different, deleted texture of the moon surface was used for all levels. It was only after the Beta builds that these full, circular planet graphics were added. Given that each planet graphic is a full circle, it's likely that the planet was meant to spin, otherwise there would be a lot of unseen content on each graphic.
Leftover Beta Build Credits
Boss Text HUD
Mugshot icons for Thor and Oldster. Thor's was used in the Beta, but Oldster's was never seen before. The icon for Oldster was used when he was still in She Came From Outer Space, before Goofy Mafia took his place. Both of these graphics have long since been removed from the Modding Tools.
Time Of Day Graphics
Textures that can be found in the earlier versions of the Modding Tools, as the content package that contained them has long since been completely removed. These seem to be related to some kind of scrapped time-changing system, where a level would have a morning setting, afternoon, and night setting. The only level to really feature different times of day in the final game prominently is Mafia Town.
A typewriter font, intended for Murder on the Science Express according to coding from a HUD element from the Beta builds. This font has long since been removed from the Modding Tools.
Timmy Relic Map Icon
Sand 'n Sails Remix Icon
Snatcher Sketch Face
A picture of Snatcher, intended to appear on a wall somewhere in some level, probably Subcon Forest. This is the same type of graphic found for the sketching that takes place in Chapter 2. Mafia and Moon Penguins versions of this exist, which are used.
Snatcher Contract Pride Graphic
Water Flask HUD
Graphics meant to be used for the water flask HUD for Sand 'n Sails. Can be seen in prerelease footage by Aruki, in a playthrough of Pumping Pumpkin Factory.
Unknown if this was meant to a be a titlecard like the ones below, but its filename is literally "titlecard", so here it is. Mr. TV is likely referring to the scrapped Narrator character, who was made for Twilight Dungeon. It's unknown exactly when this would've been displayed.
Snatcher's radio icon used in Death Wish was snipped from Subcon Forest's graphic, here.
In the Mafia Town graphic, the old sign for the 'Spicy Buns' store can be seen on the right, and in the Subcon Forest graphic, the scrapped thorn wall can be seen in the background. Some Steam trading cards use graphics of characters from these two titlecards.
Settings Menu Text Graphics
A whole bunch of text graphics for the Settings Menu. In the final game, all of these are loaded via localization, so that they can be translated into other languages. Thus, these aren't needed. All of these graphics have long since been removed from the Modding Tools.
Time Rift Pictures
Seal the Deal Logo
Placeholder Task Master Icons
SS Literally Can't Sink Map
Two graphics that appear to be maps for the ship in The Arctic Cruise. They are placeholder, given their filenames. In the final, the map the player is given is a hologram of the ship in certain rooms, along with a marker to tell the player which room they're in. Used in the early version of The Arctic Cruise that leaked on May 28 2018.
Task Master Pressure Steam
Steam graphics that were intended for the HUD used for Ship Shape. No known version of Task Master's coding uses these graphics. Probably meant to be used by the Captain's face when he's really mad, and was likely supposed to be animated, too.
Early Task Master Room Icons
Located within the HatinTime_Levels_Boat_K package is an entire duplicate set of all the Task Master HUD graphics, including the unused pressure steam shown above. All of it is unused, as the HUD that is used in-game is stored in its own package. The only differences between the two sets are two icons for rooms: the poolside icon, and the laundry icon. These icons actually match the appearance of the icons in the DLC 1 leak from May 28, 2018, suggesting that they were never updated since being imported. The poolside icon's older version is a much, much darker shade of blue than the final version, and the laundry icon was made a dull aqua from its previous light-aqua color. Strangely, the laundry room icon's resolution was changed to be 512x512, whereas all other room icons, including the older version of it, are 256x256.
Death Wish Map
A graphic that, judging by its filename, was meant to be display when a Death Wish was completed without any bonuses completed. In the final game, the icon used for this scenario is the stamped-in version of it with yellow eyes and mouth.
Three different ribbon graphics, likely meant for the non-candle Death Wishes. These were meant to represent bonuses completed, as can be seen in the reveal trailer for Seal the Deal. In the final game, there are two ribbon graphics that are used to represent bonuses completed, but a third one for a total completion of a Death Wish is not present. Instead, the stamp icon turns gold.
Leaked Death Wish Map Graphics
In November and December of 2017, Gears For Breakfast accidentally included WIP graphics of Death Wish while it was under development through updates to the Modding Tools. These were publically available for a short time. The graphics were quickly removed in updates, but the packages could still be downloaded through Steam. While there weren't many graphics for the mode, what was there were early HUD icons and textures, almost all of which changed for the final game.
An early version of the completed graphic, although in this version of Death Wish, it was simply used to denote an active Death Wish. Compared to its final counterpart, it's missing the white outline.
An early version of the 'completed' Death Wish Graphic! This was used in this early version of Death Wish to denote a completed Death Wish. Its checkmark is orange instead of blue, and also lacks the white outline.
The graphic for when a Death Wish is not yet accessible, but is visible. This version actually matches the graphic in the current version of the game, but at a higher resolution. Interestingly, it does not match the version of the graphic used when DLC 1 first released, indicating that when the texture's resolution was reduced, it was this early version of the empty graphic that was used for the resolution reduction, rather than the finalized one.
The only difference to the final version is the lack of a white outline.
Full Team Victory Graphics
A copy of the mode's titlecard used when loading into the map. The game does not use this particular instance of the graphic. Instead, it loads the titlecard externally from the folder that contains the mode.
