Rayman SNES Prototype Now Available to Play

/ Jul 4th, 2017 No Comments

A playable prototype demo of an unreleased Rayman game for the Super Nintendo is now available on the internet.

Omar Cornut, game designer and game archivist, helped bring the prototype to the internet after it originally surfaced last year. The demo can be downloaded through Dropbox. It features a small environment, limited character animations, and the ability to jump.

Rayman creator Michel Ancel was only one of the two people working on the game for the Super Nintendo. Despite it never coming to light, Ancel gave the prototype cartridge to Cornut who then dumped it into a ROM format. Cornut runs SMS Power, a website established in 1997 which archives a number of classic games from legacy consoles such as the Sega Master System.

Ancel shared pictures of the SNES Rayman game from a ROM after a friend discovered an old build of it. Despite not releasing on the SNES, Rayman eventually made its way to the PlayStation 1, Sega Saturn and Atari Jaguar in a completed form. As one of Ubisoft’s longest-running series, Rayman has seen several sequels and even the popular Rabbids spin-off.

Cornut may also be recognized as one of the names behind the studio Lizardcube. It developed the game Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, a remaster of the 1989 Master System game.
