This is a sub-page of Proto:Ratatouille (GameCube, Wii, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Windows).

Hiddenpalace.org logo.png  This prototype is documented on Hidden Palace.

Forestofillusion.com logo.png  This was documented on Forest of Illusion.

A build from an unknown date. Seemingly only 50% done, this beefy prototype is teeming with all sorts of changes and inconsistencies. Let's get cooking, shall we?

General Differences

PlayStation 2 Leftovers

This build appears to be a rush job- many PlayStation 2 leftovers are present, indicating that not only was the PS2 version the master version of the game, but also that this prototype was hastily ported to GameCube and patched up just enough to get it running. As such, things are in a very buggy state.

  • The final PS2 version runs at a smooth 60fps, while the final GameCube version plays at 30. Due to the apparently rushed nature of this proto, the game is unoptimized for GameCube hardware and runs incredibly slowly, only running at around 10fps on an emulator (and roughly 6 or 7 on real hardware!). For some unholy reason, however, simply playing the game without a memory card will boost things right back to 60fps. Who knew?
  • When giving instructions on how to perform actions or commands, the proto exclusively uses PS2 button prompts and icons. Nothing related to the GameCube controller is in the files yet.

Opening Credits

  • The Asobo logo is different, being purple instead of blue, amongst other minor changes.
  • There's no Ratatouille splash screen just before the title screen.
  • The demo movie that plays when you wait on the title screen is absent.

Heads-Up-Display and User Interfaces

  • The title screen reads "Press START" instead of "Press START/PAUSE".
  • The game's logo is incomplete.
Prototype Final

  • The cookbook menus, although similar, had their graphics completely replaced by the end of development.
  • Extra text is present under the three main menu options, as well as an extra option labeled "Video" for watching the proto's various incomplete cutscenes.
  • Entries for other options, such as extras and difficulty settings, don't exist yet.
  • Almost all text related to warnings, loading, and saving aren't implemented.
Prototype Final
Ratatouilleproto mainmenu.png Ratatouillegc mainmenu.png
  • An extra option to freely switch levels at your leisure exists in the pause menu. Likely added for debugging and testing purposes, this was removed from the final game for obvious reasons.
  • There is no status page implemented yet.
Prototype Final
Ratatouilleproto pausemenu.png Ratatouillegc pausemenu.png
  • The HUD does exist, but an unknown bug prevents it from showing up most of the time. It will occasionally pop in though. Oddly enough, pushing the camera against solid walls seems to help.
  • Remy's icon and health meter are slightly different. It seems the decision to start with 3 health points and graduate to 8 over time had already been made, but it's in a preliminary state.
  • The number of collectibles you need to obtain is also present, albeit rudimentary as well.
Prototype Final
Ratatouille proto hud.png Rataouille gamecube hud.png
  • Multiplayer HUD is present in an early state.
Prototype Final
Ratatouille asobo multi.png Ratatouille gc multi.png
  • Pipe slides have a functioning timer, as well as a scrapped speedometer.
Prototype Final
Ratatouille proto pipehud.png Rataouille gc pipehud.png
  • Heists and cooking minigames do have early versions of their UI elements, but they don't seem to work right just yet. Both use full sets of PS2 controller button graphics.
Prototype Final
Ratatouille asobo proto cake.png Ratatouille gc cake.png
  • Gusteau's tips, hints, and advice are displayed as scrolling text in a pop up box in the upper left hand corner of the screen, in contrast to a static text box that stops the game like in the final release. Also, the prototype version uses a similar visual style to the early cookbook menus, rather than being a transparent blue backdrop.

  • Remy is using an updated version of the model from the Heavy Iron prototype. He now sports his iconic blue fur, in contrast to the dark purple he had in the film's concept art.
    • Interestingly though, his finalized model is used in some of this build's early cutscenes.
Heavy Iron Prototype Asobo Prototype Final Release

  • Remy's actions are mapped to X in this prototype with his tail swipe on B. In the final game, everything is on B and X goes unused.
  • Remy doesn't take fall damage.
  • Remy can still collect cheese even if his health meter is already full.
  • Remy cannot die at all. Getting hurt with one hit point left just sets you back to 3.
    • However, in the Kitchen Day world, a preliminary death cutscene does exist.
Prototype Final
Ratatouille asobo proto death.png Ratatouille gc death.png
  • All of Remy's moves are accounted for- however, dashing/sliding seems to not work on emulators for unknown reasons.
  • Climbing up ledges appears to be fully automated in this prototype, and only works on predesignated surfaces.
  • Remy's scent vision trail always begins in the mission start spot and travels to all objectives/collectibles at once, rather than starting at Remy's current location and only leading to the next sequential item needed to progress.
Prototype Final
Ratatouille asobo proto scent vision.png Ratatouille gc scent vision.png
  • Rafting is slightly buggy; jumping out of the raft will often result in falling in the water due to Remy not following the raft when he jumps out.
  • Pole swinging is incredibly buggy. In order to connect with the next pole in the sequence, the player must be holding completely left or right in the appropriate direction- even then, in some areas it just simply won't work, making traversing a few locations unreasonably hard.
  • Point jumping is unfinished, and only works when Remy activates it right next to whatever he is trying to land on, which makes it significantly harder to perform compared to the final.
  • Chili Pepper bombs are fully functional, and even have a cut ability removed from the final game. Normally, Remy must set the bomb down for it to detonate, but here, by pressing B while still holding it, he can set it off himself (and possibly meet an explosive fate).
  • Mission briefings do exist, but they're only present in the Kitchen Day world.
  • Pipe slides are here, but they aren't played at the end of each world- instead, here they function as optional challenges to win lightbulbs for the hub.
  • Dream worlds exist and serve the same purpose they do in the retail game.
  • Linguini's cooking minigames have been implemented, however, they are not required to progress through the campaign, and can be played at any time. Unfortunately though, they are incompletable due to not recognizing button inputs for an unknown reason.
  • Humans can notice Remy, and an exclamation mark will appear indicating he's been spotted, but getting caught by them seems to not be working quite right, as there doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason to how or when you'll get caught.
    • Rather than dying, getting caught simply respawns Remy back at the last checkpoint he passed.
  • Heists have been added and are very similar to their finalized counterparts, but are impossible to finish in the same manner as Linguini's cooking minigames.
  • Chase scenes are here and functional to varying degrees; all 4 including an extra 4th section to each one, making them longer (and somewhat harder) than the finalized versions.

World Differences

For a movie licensed game, this one had a wild development. Almost every single level was either redesigned, or entirely rebuilt from the ground up some time after this prototype. Read below to get the details.

Cutscene Differences

Cutscene Differences
Ah, the wonders of work-in-progress animation.

Audio Differences

  • The audio is in a very incomplete state. Only two songs play, sound effects are sparse, and there's a decent chance the audio will stop functioning properly and begin outputting very loud garbage noise until the stage is reloaded.
  • Remy has no voice clips.
  • Very few sounds play in the prototype, and what few there are were either removed or switched around by the game's release.
    • The sound used for collecting stars and cheese in this build was reused as the sound for collecting apple cores.
    • Early versions of the menu sounds seem to be used here. Whether they were tweaked to completion or simply replaced by better ones is currently unknown.
  • The cutscenes have no audio. The game will attempt to play something back, but the result is always garbage noise.

Placeholder Songs

Only four songs exist in the game's files, and none of them are original compositions.


Plays on the title screen and some minigames. Appears to be a 20 second snippet of "Appel Direct" by Django Reinhardt.


Plays in Little Chef - Big Kitchen, That's a Loot of Fruit, and some minigames. Is "R-Vingt Six" by Django Reinhardt.


Doesn't seem to be used anywhere. It's the song "Belleville Rendez-Vous" from the 2003 film The Triplets of Belleville.


Once again, it appears to go unused. This one is "Troublant Boléro" from Biréli Lagrène.

Dialogue Differences

Hidden within the "tt01.gc" file is the entirety of the dialogue written for the game. Most of it is similar to the final, but there are various tidbits buried in there that have no retail equivalent, including countless cut lines for Gusteau himself! Below is a full list of all of the differences in both versions of the written text for the game. Get ready for a slew of grammar problems.

Somewhere in France

Possibly the biggest takeaway here is that Remy and Emile are much more antagonistic towards each other as brothers, something which would be rewritten as genuine concern for the other's well-being.

Context Prototype Final Game

Remy: "I'm not certain, but..."

Gusteau: "Go on..."

Remy: "Paris!"

Gusteau: "Yes..."

Remy: "Did you lead me here? Why? Aren't you just a figment of my imagination?"

Gusteau: "Oui, I am a figment of your imagination, but inspiration comes to us all... especially chefs."

Remy (unused): "Help you do what?"

Gusteau: "The critics have dropped my restaurant from five stars to four. I believe you, mon petit ami, can help me get that star back."

Remy: "Rebuild Gusteau's? I think I can handle that."

"The City of Lights" Briefing Django: "Ah Remy, here you are at last, i've been waiting for you"

Remy: "uuuhh, you know, i was looking around for some good food and..."

Django: "Whatever..., speaking of food, we're near the famous 3 stars restaurant gusteau's. We should find some good food there."

Django: "I heard they feed dogs with a bucket of scraps every day, we need to get hold of that bucket."

Remy: "How are we gonna do that dad.

Django: "Get to the courtyard and find the other rats, they know all the details, use your sense of smell to find them and beware of the dogs."

Remy: "I hate dogs....I guess i better get going."

Django: "Ah Remy, I've been waiting for you."

Remy: "Sorry Dad, I got lost and ended up in Paris."

Django: "Speaking of good food..."

Remy: "Dogs... great."

I think now is a good time to look for your father. He must be searching high and low for you." Gusteau: "Oooph... let's see; dark, smelly, wet... the perfect place for a colony of rats!"

The City of Lights

General clean-up. Also, there seems to be unique dialogue for each part of the heist that was removed in the final.

Context Prototype Final Game
World Introduction Gusteau: "Ah, The city of light, PARIS,,,, Here you are Remy, The streets of Paris are most beautifull but can be very dangerous, especially for a young rat like you. Beware of the mangy dogs wandering in those streets, they need to eat too and they don't get picky when it comes down to it," Gusteau: "So Remy left the simple life of the country behind him... *and came to Paris... where life is much more... *how you say? Uhh... complicated."
"How Now Bowwow" Start Dialogue Twitch: "Remy, here you are, let's get to business right away. Gusteau's restaurant is over there, just a few meters away....that's the good news."

Remy: "And the bad news is...??"

Twitch: "The bad news is that there is a dog guarding the entrance to the courtyard. you're going to need to find a dog bone to lure these filthy canine away from the street and the courtyard."

Remy: "Ok i got it, let's do it."

Twitch: "Remy, there you are. Gusteau's restaurant is over there, just a few meters away... that's the good news."

Remy: "And the bad news?"

Twitch: "The bad news is there's a crazy dog guarding the entrance to the courtyard. *You're gonna need to find a dog bone to lure the thing away."

Remy: "Got it. Let's go."

"Doggy Distraction" Start Dialogue Git: "Wow, you did good with luring this dog away, they're not that clever after all,,,,, Let's get back to business: You need to clean the courtyard of all rat so we can operate freely. But beware, there is another dog patrolling and we're out of bones."

Remy: "OK, but how should i procede ?"

Git: "You'll have to find a spoon and take a swing at the traps to disable them, but you'll have to worry about the dog at all times, always check his position before you do anything."

Remy: "All right, i'm on it then,,,"

Git: "Hey good job! Dogs aren't so smart after all, huh? *Now we need you to disable those rattraps... It's not safe for us out there. *Can you do this?"

Remy: "Alright, so what do I do?"

Git: "Hey... I got it. Why don't you find some spoons to disable the traps? It's dangerous out there. Be careful!"

Remy: "All right... got it."

"Magpie Madness" Start Dialogue Celine: "Ok, the hard part is already behind, the next task is almost piece of cake. We need you to climb up to the rooftops and get to the magpie's nest. There is a coin that might come in handy. Take it and drop it down the rain gutter."

Remy: "Sounds easy, but i 'd rather stay focused. I'm on my way,,,"

Celine: (No Equivalent)

Celine: "That's done... good... listen, on the rooftops there's a coin we need in the nest. Find it... then drop it down the rain gutter."

Remy: "Yeah i get it, i'm on my way."

Emile: "Ok, now is the time to make our move. *Give each rat a go sign, then you'll have to signal the way out to the other rats. Remember... you need to be fast."

Little Chef - Big Kitchen

The most notable difference here is that there's no dialogue implemented for the cooking portions of the world, and as such, Colette continues to get shafted.

Context Prototype Final Game
World Introduction Gusteau: "And here we are in the kitchen, the heart and soul of Gusteau's. There, where the cake is being prepared, is the pastry station. And there is the dish washing area, the stove...where we sautee, poach, and grill our creations to perfection...the soap station, and of course, the cold storage, where the best ingredients are hidden. Are you ready to explore the most famous kitchen in all of Paris?" Gusteau: "And here we are in the kitchen... the heart and soul of Gusteau's.*There, where the cake is being prepared, is the patisserie.*That is the dish washing area... and the stove - where we sauté, poach, and grill our creations to perfection... * Followed by the canapé area where they make the soup. *And finally, the cold storage, where the best ingredients are kept! *Are you ready to explore the most famous kitchen in all of Paris?"

The City Market

Significantly different- entire chunks had to be rewritten due to re-contextualization in the world itself with the change in mission objectives.

Context Prototype Final Game
World Introduction Gusteau: "This is the market, Remy, where every great dish begins. Beware of other shoppers; if they see you or make contact, you're in trouble. We have the fournisseurs des poissons et produit, for our fish and produce, le boulangerie for our baked goods, and le boucher, the butcher. Are you ready to get some food?" Gusteau: "This... my friend... is the market, where every great dish begins.*Beware of humans. If they notice or catch you, it's au revoir Remy'... *Here we have the fish and produce vendors,*la boulangerie for our baked goods, and le boucher... * how do you say... 'the butcher'? for our meats. Are you ready to get some food?"
"Fuse Quest"/Prototype Mission #1 Start Dialogue Twitch: "You must catch the children so that you can move freely in this world. The only way to do that is to find and knock down three buckets from the ledges on to their hard little heads."

Remy: "Children !!! Are you sure ??"

Twitch: "They are kids , but they are still dangerous for us."

Remy: "All right, i'll do it"

Twitch: "Remy, your first assignment is to find a fuse and bring it to me."

Remy: "A fuse? What for?"

Twitch: "I need it to start the forklift."

Remy: "Alright, I'll do it."

"French Food"/Prototype Mission #2 Start Dialogue Git: "Hey Remy, ready for more ?? We need you to go to the fruit shop and take some of them and place them on the ladder right next to the fruit shop. We'll get hold of them later"

Remy: "Seems like an easy assignment, i'm glad i don't have to be around dogs or worse,,,,,"

Git: "There are still humans in the area, and not the nicest ones, don't forget that and stay sharp."

Remy: "You sound just like my dad, be carefull,,,,,,,,,,,,,ok, i better get going."

Git: "Hey Remy... you ready for more ha-ha? *We need you to go move some food in the market so we can get it later."

Remy: "There aren't any dogs are there?"

Git: "No, no, no... no dogs, but there are humans so be careful."

Remy: "Seems like an easy assignment, I'm just glad there's no dogs..."

Remy: "So we're stealing from the market and then stealing from the old lady? *Gusteau would be furious with me."

Celine: "Who's Gusteau?"

Remy: "He's this chef, see? And... oh forget it... I'm in."

Celine: "If you've got a question about something... you should ask your father."

Emile: "Hahaha... it's a good job Remy. Now we need to get what we came here for - the food! *You know what to do. Just give the signal to each of the rats."

Remy: "Gotcha!"

The Desserted Kitchen

The general idea is the same, but the wording and delivery was completely redone, and for the better.

Context Prototype Final Game
World Introduction Gusteau: "Ahhh, poor Linguini! The other chefs heard about the rats in the kitchen and left him twisting in the wind. But one cook's crisis may be one rat's opportunity to shine. You must help him, Remy. Are you ready?" Gusteau: "Ahhh, poor Linguini! The other chefs seem to have left him to complete the dinner rush alone! *But one chef's crisis may be another chef's opportunity. *You must help him, Remy. Are you ready?"
"Skinner to Storage" Start Dialogue Git: "Ok, if we want to help Linguini in the kitchen, we must get rid of skinner right away .You must lure Skinner into the closet and lock him inside! Hurry..."

Remy: "I'm all for it, but how can i do that?"

Git: "Skinner hates us rats, just show yourself and play a little game of hide and seek. You should be able to lead him into the closet. Once he's in, we 'll lock him up."

Remy: "Sounds good, risky but good....."

Git: "We gotta get rid of that human."

Remy: "Okay, but how?"

Git: "Hey... lure him into the closet. Once he's there, we'll lock him up."

Remy: "Not all humans dislike us Git, but this one does."

"Rat Trap Whack!" Start Dialogue Twitch: "Remy, the kitchen has been filled with rat traps, we need to disable all of them if we want to be able to cook for Linguinni. Disable all the traps, you can do so by using a spoon and swing at the traps or lure any ennemy into the traps."

Remy: "All right, i'm on it"

Twitch: "Remy, the kitchen's filled with rattraps. You need to get rid of them. Use a spoon and swing at the traps or lure an enemy into them."

Remy: "All right, I'm on it."

"Who Took the Book?" Start Dialogue Celine: "Remy, if you want to cook, you going to need your cookbook but i believe you don't know where it is . If you want it back you should go take a look in Skinner's office; you might be surprised."

Remy: "You're sure, well you know him better than i do, so i might as well get inside his office and look for my book,,,"

Celine: "You need to hurry , Remy, you still have a lot of work to do ."

Celine: "She needs Gusteau's recipe book. Get it out of the office and get it back to her."

Remy: "Ok, I'm on my way."

Celine: (No equivalent)

"Satisfy Your Ego" Start Dialogue Emile: "Ok, we're set, everybody go to your station and get ready . We need to give our best to help Linguinni and save the Restaurant."

Colette: (No equivalent)

Emile: "We need to do our best to help save the Restaurant... aaaaaaaah!!!"

Colette: "Hurry, the critic just ordered... he's waiting!!!"


It seems pipe slides and rafting stages were originally going to have rats waiting beside them that would've explained what was waiting on the other side for Remy to collect.

Context Prototype Final Game
Pipe Slide Preface (Unused) Unknown: "Hey Remy, I ve seen a light bulb in the sewer but it was out of reach. I think it should be accessible using this sewer drain and going down the pipe, are you up for it ?"

Remy: "A light bulb.... yes it might be usefull, let's go"

Cookbook Menu: "Do you want to enter (slide)?"

Remy: (No equivalent)

"Oh Smelly Water" Preface (Unused) Unknown: "Hey Remy, I ve seen a light bulb in the sewer but it was out of reach. I think it should be accessible by using a can to raft the sewer, are you up for it ?"

Remy: "Ok, let's go rafting then."

Cookbook Menu: "Do you want to enter 'Oh Smelly Water'?"

Remy: (No equivalent)

All Lightbulbs Collected Cutscene Gusteau: "Look at what you've done, Remy. These lights give some much needed luminescence to this dark place. In the City of Lights, we now have the Sewer of Lights!" Gusteau: "Look at what the light bulbs have transformed the sewer into - your own city of lights!!"
All Darts Collected (Unused) Gusteau: "Well done, monsieur! Now head back to the colony to see how the Darts are being used." Gusteau: "Allez! You should return to the sewer to see how the darts are being put to use..."
All Darts Collected Cutscene Gusteau: "Those darts you collected in the courtyard has now opened some new possibilities of entertainment for your people" Gusteau: "Allez! See how the darts are being put to use..."
All Soap Bottles Collected Cutscene Gusteau: "Look mon ami. See how cool this new feature is ? Thanks to the soap bottle you brought back from the kitchen, the old water pump can be used as a bubble machine. It sure isn't very usefull but it's nice and entertaining." Gusteau: "Now you can use the soap pump as a bubble machine! Good job Remy."
All Batteries Collected Cutscene Gusteau: "Ahh, the music of France, monsieur. Milhaud, Poulenc, Tailleferre, and all the rest...they make even the deepest of sewers come to life. Tres charmant!" Gusteau: "Ahh, the music of France can make even the deepest of sewers come to life."
All Fuses Collected Cutscene Gusteau: "I see that you put the collected fuse into good use, You now have a TV that works. That's great because you'll be able to watch cooking shows and learn some more cooking skills." Gusteau: "Now that you've got all the fuses, the television in the sewer should work!"

Gusteau's Unused Flavor Dialogue

In the final game, Remy has various voice clips that the game will cycle through depending on the given situation to keep the player invested in the world and characters as they play. In the prototype however, it seems this role was originally meant to go to Gusteau, as he has many, many text lines corresponding to voice clips to-be-recorded leftover in the build's text files. They almost seem to imply that Gusteau's deceased spirit is actually following Remy around, rather than him just being Remy's internal instinct manifest as an imaginary guide.

Unused Chase Complete Text

Leftover in both the prototype and the final game is text pertaining to completing the chase levels at the end of each world. In the prototype, the text is longer due to including the world names associated with each chase (albeit not the finalized names). However, most interestingly is that the text for The City Market implies that rather than being chased by Skinner and Mabel like in the final, Remy was initially planned to be pursued by a fishmonger instead.

Context Prototype Final
