The Cutting Room Floor is a site dedicated to unearthing and researching unused and cut content from video games. From debug menus, to unused music, graphics, enemies, or levels, many games have content never meant to be seen by anybody but the developers — or even meant for everybody, but cut due to time/budget constraints.
Feel free to browse our collection of games and start reading. Up for research? Try looking at some stubs and see if you can help us out. Just have some faint memory of some unused menu/level you saw years ago but can't remember how to access it? Feel free to start a page with what you saw and we'll take a look. If you want to help keep this site running and help further research into games, feel free to donate.
Released: 1988, NES/Famicom
Bionic Commando was a game that had Nazis in it; so was massively censored by Nintendo, having all references to Nazis replaced with "The Badds" (except for the fact that if you made it all the way to the end, you got to fight Hitler). It's a fun platformer, but oddly enough you can't actually jump in it. It has a lot of unused and censored content, including unused areas, and unused dialogue, but the regional differences are, quite expectedly, where most of the differences lie.
