Description

Games That Didn't Make It is a compilation of eight previously unreleased Epic Banana games. Several of the games are unfinished and a number of them stretch the definition of what one could reasonably term a game.
  • Flying Face - Less a game than an interactive experiment in Pascal. A face flies across the screen, bouncing whenever it comes in contact either with the sides of the window or the user's mouse.

  • Kung-Fou - In essence a fairly small screen saver. A fellow is attacked by two men wearing ski-masks and proceeds to beat them within an inch of their life until you quit.

  • Old Extreme Prejudice - A top-down shooter wherein the player takes the role of a special forces operative infiltrating a number of suspect organizations. Sometime in it's development it was superseded by an experiment in platforming, which ultimately became the Extreme Prejudice that was eventually released. Due to it's unfinished nature the game is fairly short and has very few of it's features actually integrated within the game. There is a small, player versus player multiplayer component.

  • Plah - The player runs around in a small, sparse world alongside two brown blob monsters. The player is capable of firing small red pellets but they do absolutely nothing. They cannot otherwise interact with their environment and the game has no objectives.

  • Stan the Swordsman - A simple side-scrolling medieval platformer. The player travels through two levels combating the forces of evil, such as spiders, with their trusty sword.

  • Terrorism - A text-based action game featuring three different scenarios based around combating the Dark Sun Clan, a terrorist organization. The game relies on randomization in order to make such an uncommon genre crossover functional. As it's unfinished it contains a number of not so subtle issues, one of the three scenarios even being incompletable.

  • Vamp - The player is a vampire that walks around an incredibly small town murdering men in their pajamas. The player has no hostile adversaries and they can neither win nor lose.

  • Xai - The player drives a car across a featureless plane dropping tacks. When the harmless scribble men wandering around the plane pass over the tacks they die and disappear. The game has no objectives or threats to the player. At the center of the level is a large character, for which the game is named, that has no bearing on the goings on around him and exists simply to scratch himself.
