This page details one or more prototype versions of The Simpsons Skateboarding.

Hmmm...
To do:
Find more differences for both builds, explore the levels, etc.

E3 Demo

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

The E3 demo of The Simpsons Skateboarding is dated May 10, 2002, predating the final US build by almost five months. It was obtained through Hidden Palace's Project Deluge.

General Differences

  • A watermark that says "E3 Demo" is displayed on-screen at all times.

Graphical Differences

Title Screen

Proto Final

  • The title screen lacks an option to press Start, but rather only has options to select four characters and to play the intro FMV.
  • The background image is just a close-up of the game's logo.
  • The game's logo itself is smaller and centered at a different position.

Bart Simpson

  • The back of Bart's head has an issue with its vertices, causing a dark zone.

Alpha 13

General Differences

Graphical Differences

Proto Final

The loading screen is more basic-looking and lacks Bart.

The loading screen uses a placeholder.

Proto Final

The title screen has copyright info at the bottom, which was removed in the final. Also, the render of the logo is in a noticeably lower resolution.


Every level uses the same preview video, which appears to be an early version of Springfield Elementary.
