A prototype/prerelease build of Aeon Flux for the PlayStation 2 from 2005-06-27 (about 3.5 months before the NTSC release build, almost 8 months before the PAL release build).


The disc for this prototype had it labeled a "review" build, but this is actually an early version of the game. It includes EXTENSIVE debugging features (as well as debug symbols in the game binary), alternate level names from the release build, and unfinished content.

This prototype is set up to end after the "Seeds of Doom" chapter, which is about 2/3 of the way through the release version. However, the game data files include very early, unfinished versions of two levels from later chapers ("Ms. Goodchild" and "War"), as well as numerous test areas.

Use the .pnach files included in the Patches folder in the CVLT OF OSIRIS release of this prototype to access unfinished and test areas. Two .pnach files are provided because the level-select menu only contains 18 entries. Choose one or the other at a time. The EP_SEED_UB_01.LVL, EP_MSGOODCHILD_CIT_01.LVL, and EP_WAR_NML_02.LVL levels are included in both sets to make the second set 18 entries long, and those three were chosen as they're some of the most interesting levels which were hidden in this prototype.

Set 1:

  • EP_IRONY_URBANBREGNA1_LIGHT_TEST.LVL: Doesn't seem to work
  • EP_SEED_UB_01.LVL: Loads, not present in normal level-select menu
  • EP_MSGOODCHILD_CIT_01.LVL: Extremely early version of a level from later in the game which is not normally accessible in this prototype
  • EP_WAR_NML_02.LVL: Extremely early version of a level from later in the game which is not normally accessible in this prototype

  • MARK_BOXES2.LVL: Large test area
  • MARK_BOXES3.LVL: Large test area

  • MARK_CONVEX2.LVL: Hangs during load
  • MARK_UB_1.LVL: Very large test area version of Urban Bregna
  • MENU_SKYBOX.LVL: Doesn't seem to work
