  • Forest eagle ride (RIV_Test_Brk_Foret_FPP)
  • Shark ride (filename?)
  • Sphincter Cell (filename?)
Thanks, I have created the page here. Please feel free to add anything you can think of in there, and to share it with the others exploring the prototype. Let's see if this can prove useful. :)

Looks exactly like the one from the early screenshots:

And they didn't change much in the final game:

Neat, thanks for sharing! Do they appear in any level, or are the models just stored separately somewhere? And where do the names come from? :o

I think "Simonhe" is the name of the model and "Simohne" is mentioned as Rayman's fiancée in in the localization file (attached).

Monik is also mentioned as a fairy and someone else's girlfriend and at some point says that she hopes that André is waiting for her somewhere.

I see, thanks! Looks like Monik was going to guide Rayman like Murfy did before. How did we link the model with the character mentioned in the localization, however?

She says that she's a fairy in her dialogue and her model name is "Fée", which means "Fairy" in french

So, André's girlfriend was a fairy? :shock: I guess I underestimated the charisma of the dark lum lord.

Makes sense! It's pretty cool to find out more about those cut characters.

Also, do I understand that they hadn't quite decided how to spell the name of Rayman's girlfriend? :fou2:

It's all so interesting! It makes me sad at the same time, it was so cool! Maybe Andre was in his Red Lums form in this game? Because Monik says she likes lums because they are so cute so it seems more logical... it would have been funny if in the end she saw his black lum form and left :fou:

Mae's video fills my heart with longing and regret. Of course we've all known the deal for years, they had the game mostly done and then had to turn around and scrap it for a Wii-oriented party game. But to actually see it there, all seeming to hang together (even if some of it is probably good video splicing), and all to have been just thrown away…

That said, 2006 me would probably have found it all quite overwhelming and frustrating. Only after playing more "grown-up" games does it look so appealing to me! :lol:

You see, guys? You see? :mefiant: Even then, Murfy wasn't going to "see [him] in Rayman 4"! It was never true, it was just a joke!

Fair enough, Betilla was also referred to as simply "fée" in the Rayman 1 code. I guess it means they'd only planned to have one fairy in the story. Which I suppose is for the best, since it wouldn't make sense to have Ly in the game when Rayman has a girlfriend :confus:

She looks a bit like a grown-up goth-like version of Zaza. Maybe the experience of the DomZ kidnapping her parents made her vulnerable to his charms :hap:
Note to self: enough with the BG&E references already!

More seriously, are her wings supposed to look like tree branches? Was she to be part-plant or something? That's a bit weird…

I guess we should make Special Ranks of all these newly-discovered characters! A dark-haired pale-skinned fairy with a name similar to "Monica" might just be my new go-to if I ever win any more contests around here…

I'd love to see full models or at least concept art of Simohne and Monik! Their characters sound like they had the potential to be really interesting, though it's hard to imagine Ray and Andy with girlfriends!

I was waiting for that video. I was surprised to see he had the RRR Cheese Heads ruler that I mentioned in my list of lost media, I'll update the wiki.

I agree! Overall, my feeling is that there's a good reason why the game was canceled, and I'm not sure I would have been a huge fan of it, even while keeping in mind that this prototype was still at a very early stage. There's a few interesting things in it however, and I hope they'll get reused in Rayman 4 if it ever comes out. :hap:

I have documented a bunch of additional levels here:

But I think I am missing some from RM4 - Test Tech!
