This page details one or more prototype versions of SpongeBob SquarePants: Employee of the Month.
A demo of SpongeBob SquarePants: Employee of the Month can be found on several other Nickelodeon games from the time, and can easily be found online. It predates the final game by a month. While there are little to no clear aesthetic differences, there's some earlier stuff lurking in the files.
The copyright screen is very primitive in the demo compared to the final.
The format for the game's dialogue is different in the demo. Instead of being an encrypted SB2 file, they're easily readable TXT files. comments.txt, the subtitles for SpongeBob's commentary, is where most of the unused text is.
I can't open that door from here.
I'm too far away.
I can't talk to him from here.
I can't talk to her from here.
All of these lines are useless because SpongeBob always walks to what you click on.
It looks like a videocassette player!
An unused line about a VCR. You can watch the game's videos in the View Movies menu, but there's no VCR.
Wow. I never knew making a game took so much work!
SpongeBob presumably talking about credits.
Oooo a hat! I love hats!
It's a hat.
SpongeBob talking about hats, purpose unknown.
I'm not sure what to do with that.
Alternate text for trying to mix an item or giving an item to someone. The final version of the game uses different dialogue, so these aren't used.
