A prototype of Alias for the PlayStation 2.


  • An NTSC demo build from about month and a half before the final game. The executable is byte-for-byte identical to the later January 10th 2004 build, but there are differences elsewhere and both versions have different build dates. Both are using different external ELFs.
  • The only level seems to be Operation Museum, so the game starts there rather than Operation Casino.
  • There's a demo timeout, and a message warning you of the timeout appears on screen when the time is nearly up.
  • The title music starts earlier in the intro sequence, and there's no pre-title intro cutscene.
  • The title screen has a "Training" option instead of the usual continue game option - this menu gives info on each of the moves the character can make and a short clip showing what each one looks like.
    • The training menu is prone to crashing, unlike the later build.
  • There is an option to quit the game instead of the Extras menu / Credits button.
  • Before the game starts, it shows the controller layout and some tips for the player.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Yes (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
