...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
StarCraft: Ghost is a rather strange title. The original StarCraft was an RTS legend, however this game was announced in 2002 as a third-person shooter. The game was stuck in development hell and quietly brushed aside in 2005, eventually being confirmed as cancelled in 2011. The game was also given to Swingin' Ape Studios at some point, who redesigned it before their version was cancelled as well.
A 2003 build of the Nihilistic version was leaked in February 2020.

A look into Nihilistic's plans for the story at this point in development.
If possible, look into the different .xbe builds and their differences.
Present in the root folder are a bunch of Windows executables (mostly non-functional 16-bit ones) and multiple .xbe files (Xbox executables) with different dates.
Possibly the most interesting one at a glance is Star_u.exe, a 32-bit Windows executable from 2002. Unfortunately, it lacks the necessary files and folder structure to run, but it is proof that the game's development was started on PC.
Add what data is present for these levels.
