Proto:Monsters, Inc. Scream Team
This page details one or more prototype versions of Monsters, Inc. Scream Team.
A demo of Monsters, Inc. Scream Team, representing a pre-final build of the game, is present on the PSone: Wherever, Whenever, Forever Demo Disc, Kiosk Demo Disc Version 1.17, and Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine Demo Disc 52 demo discs.
While two European demos were released on some of the Euro Demo discs and The Magical World of Disney on PlayStation, it is based on the final build of the game.
The demo appears to use a less compressed version of A2M's .BZZ format, as any PlayStation file viewer can read TIM files.
The save icon was the Scare Island logo in the demo.
A monster token icon was different.
Bag O 'Calories
The bag o' calories used a different texture.
While most of the icons have a "not available in demo" message across them, what is visible indicates that all of them are different from the level icons used in the final game.
The "Press Start" prompt is different in the demo, as well as being yellow.
The level geometry is different, the big M appears to be untextured, and the sun is a small yellow circle.
The lobby appears much more primitive and lacks the movie theater entrance.
The "no swimming" sign was changed from a one-eyed monster to a four-armed monster. Interestingly, this texture in the demo is used in the PlayStation 2 port.
The text is right next to the Monsters, Inc. logo was removed, leaving only the eye from the logo. The level name was shifted over slightly.
The orientation level appears much brighter with different textures. Also, instead of interacting with mailboxes to prompt hints, they pop up on their own.
The loading screen for The Oasis originally featured Boo, who was replaced with Sulley in the final.
Downtown was originally called "Streets at Night". Mike is also slightly brighter.
