A prototype of Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt! was leaked by the scene group CENSOR on October 5, 1993, about seven weeks before the game's release.


  • Awesome's head in the top-left corner decays into a skeleton as you lose health. In the final, this was replaced with him looking progressively more tired until sporting X-eyes.
  • Dying causes Awesome to quickly rot into a skeleton.
  • The transition to the Game Over screen fades to red in the prototype and teal in the final.
