Before submitting to our galleries, please read the follow-
ing rules to avoid confusion over possible rejection.

*All art must be your own. We accept only works via the
rightful artist here. If we discover you used somebody
else's work in any way, your picture will be removed.
This includes manips, screen shots, official artworks,
stolen fan art, copies, duplicates and traces.

*We have a quality standard. This is a "premium art
only" group, meaning we only accept artwork that fits
the high caliber of skill our admins deem fit. It is in no
way a personal attack if we do not accept your art. It
simply means we did not find it up to par with the
quality standard. There are still plenty of groups on DA
who will gladly take your artwork that has been rejected
by us. Please do not make a big deal about rejection. If
you can't deal with criticism in your work, then you
shouldn't be posting it publicly.

*Violence, strong language, sexual themes and "sexed up"
characters ARE allowed. We know not all Nintendo fans are
sissies, and we would never turn down a great work of art
just because somebody may find it offensive. If you wish
not to see such things, please refrain from browsing our
galleries. That being said, we do not accept any heavy
pornographic material or bizarre "fetish" drawings. That's
just our policy.

*Submit to the proper folder. If your art is submitted to
the wrong folder we will remove it. We will later organize
images within folders to match our easy browsing system,
but it's up to you to put it in the correct gallery.

Follow these rules and you should have a good time.
Enjoy!

The first year our group went up (2010) we had a
featured artist every month. The member was chosen
by an agreement of the four admins and usually went to
an artist who had a hefty amount of pieces in our
gallery, and who we felt had a great amount of skill
and/or unique charm.
These were all of our featured members. Check out their
great galleries.

This week we've decided to take a look at an always intriguing element of gaming - beta games. Many Nintendo 64 games went through drastic changes during their production, and understandably so - it was Nintendo's first attempt at a 3D console. Something about beta material always just seems fascinating to us gamers. It's like seeing a game that never got to be. It can almost seem eerie in a way, like you are looking at a game that was not meant to be seen or killed before awakening, though in actuality, they were just the necessary stepping stones it took to bring us the masterpieces we know and love today.

First let's take a look at, what is probably the most popular beta content for the N64 and debatably the console's best title, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Here are several screen captures of the original game. Nintendo began working on this title not too long after the console's launch, but it would undergo many changes before the final product would be released in early 1998. Many can tell by the images that the original idea was pretty much just to create a 3D version of the simplistic original. The same old man in red waited for a chat in caves, Link was garbed in his classic brown, gold and green with brown hair, the Stalfos were still simple skeletons with swords, the forest was a wide open wasteland of trees, and the Octoroks still had their simplistic and cartoony look.


Here we see early phases of Link's design, including a very early image of him fighting Shadow Link (very metallic looking) from Zelda 2, which was eventually used as a miniboss in the infamous Water Temple. It was said by the game's staff that Link's major N64 redesign was the result of one of their wives commenting on all Nintendo heroes having big or ugly noses and asked "why not make a handsome one?" and thus, the hunky hero of time was born. It was said that they didn't want heroes who were too serious or handsome, so they gave him "long underpants" to keep the goofiness, not realizing how many fan girls would go crazier for the white tights.

Here we have shots of the original woods. They're far emptier and foggier than what we got. It's obvious from these early glimpses that the story and world were no where near as complex and fleshed out in the earlier stages. This is also our first look at the Poes, who look extremely similar to the ghosts of the dark world in A Link to the Past for the SNES.

These all depict Hyrule Castle Town or people you could interact with. One can see from these images that Castle Town was originally going to be fully 3D and polygonal, contrary to the still rendered backdrops that were used in the final product. We also get a look at a zany early inventory view style. Many also believe that the woman in the teal dress standing near Link at Lake Hylia was Malon. This same girl could be seen in some screens at Lon Lon Ranch in the yard with the horses. If this was Malon, this is either a very early design, or perhaps she just used the same skin as a generic towns-woman. We also have a look at a Kokiri child. She's dressed more like a girl scout, and although she matches the general design of one specific Kokiri girl, she is playing the part of a different one who has the generic redhead look in the final game. Perhaps this was to be the generic Kokiri female design at first and they kept it for one girl just to pay homage or have variety. Wouldn't it be really weird if this was originally Saria?

And here's a bunch of miscellaneous shots. We see the Deku Tree, Stalfos, many multi-sized Octoroks who were clearly still being used as standard ground enemies, and Darknuts/Iron Knuckles, who were completely gold-plated. Also we have several other environments and elements such as cuckoos and Epona, who was believed to originally be named "Ember". It's hard to say what these early versions of Ocarina would have been like, but, rather than be mad about never being able to experience them, let's be thankful for the amazing final product we got.

This next one was originally slated to be a 64 release before it was canceled and later revived as a GBA game with only Japanese audiences in mind. Mother 3, which was sometimes referred to as Earth Bound 64, was being announced globally during it's N64 development. It may not have gained the commercial attention that such games as Mario and Zelda were basking in, but it was certainly out there for all to see for a brief while. The game was actually in the works as far back as 1995, right after Earth Bound's release, but due to insufficient funding and other problems, the game never saw the light of day until 2006. Here we'll take a look at some of the N64 screens.



Here we have plenty of shots involving towns, as well as the intro segments involving the trek through the woods with Flint and Boney. There's plenty of shots of Flint, who was actually very well detailed for the N64. Flint, as well as many of the characters, had more "realistic" features and proportions than he did in the final design. We also get a glimpse at Lucas and Clause who looked very different from their final designs, as well as Boney, who looks like a slinky dog minus the slinky.

Here are some more shots. The first one is clearly the Yado Inn, only reversed, and the second image is undoubtedly an early version of when Duster clings to the aircraft with the rope snake as the team grabs on, only slightly different. It appears that the party consisted of Lucas, Boney, Duster and Flint at the time of the shot rather than Kumatora. The rope snake is also nowhere to be seen in the screen capture. The next screen may very well be the original Pig Mask design, and the last one is of Kumatora when she's found caught in the trap at Osho Castle. Kumatora looked very different in her original design and looked more like a glam rocker than a tomboy.
While the GBA version of the game is surely a masterpiece, it is a shame Itoi was not able to release his vision globally or in the larger scale he originally hoped for. A team of fans developed some intriguing screens of a 3D Mother 3 port made from the Wind Waker graphics system, but that was many years ago and, to the best of our knowledge, no final product was ever made from it. It's hard to deny when seeing the fan made screens, though, that the style does fit perfectly with the game and make the world look great.


Another infamous beta story is that of Dinosaur Planet by Rare. As Conker's Bad Fur Day was extremely altered from it's original beta form shown off in 1997, what would eventually become a Star Fox game and a considerable flop on the Game Cube was a completely different N64 title in its earlier stages. Starring Krystal in a completely different form than what we got in Star Fox Adventures, as well as the dinosaur cast and eventually an outside male character (replaced by Fox McCloud) the game undoubtedly had more charm and intrigue when it was an original project. Rare was pouring their all into this, determined to make it their best work on the N64. Work on this game took so long, in fact, that the Game Cube took the spotlight during its production. The game was going to be switched to a GCN title, but after the critical success of Super Smash Bros. Melee, Fox and Falco were in high demand. Nintendo seized the opportunity by having Rare integrate the Star Fox cast into their game and redesign it. What we got, think of it how you may, was a totally different product that felt very little like a Star Fox title or an original title. This act seemingly broke up the bond between Nintendo and Rareware as they shortly after left them for Microsoft, and even released some of their previously GCN slated titles, such as Kameo: The Elements of Power, on Xbox systems. The game did little to help the popularity of Star Fox in the long run. It's a shame we will never experience the original Rareware title as it was.


Last of all, let's look at some quick Mario beta stuff.

Images here depict Blaarg in its original Super Mario World design in Bowser's world in Super Mario 64. Eyes were not yet added to the design, and perhaps were even part of the trouble with it. Though we can speculate as to why Blaarg never made the cut, we will never truly know.

Here are a couple images for the quickly canceled Mario Paint 64, first announced in 1997. Many can assume this game was canceled due to the rise in computer accessibility and programs rendering a game such as this pretty pointless. Later there were strange "game building" beta videos found that were believed to be for this same project. The games displayed were all exact WarioWare inc. microgames with slightly different graphics (and no Wario) implying that the idea for WarioWare may have been slated in a Mario Paint project. That seems suitable, being that the WarioWare series has paid homage to Mario Paint on countless occasions.

What beta game do you find the most interesting, and which early version of a game or canceled game do you wish you could play most? Share your input in the comments below!
