Irrational Games has recently updated their blog with some fantastic concept art for creatures that never made it into the final game. Scroll back a little further to see some of their older posts, and you’ll also find an amazing Big Daddy design that just wasn’t meant to be. According to Irrational Games’ Shawn Elliott, ‘SloProFum’ was the studio’s internal name for the prototype Big Daddy, shown below, who would fire iron bearing projectiles and maul players with his huge hook. The name stands for “slow projectile/fucked-up melee,” which seems fitting.
So check out the SloProFum and some other fascinating ideas that never made it past the drawing board.
