Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is a 2004 game developed by Adrenium Games and based on the Lemony Snicket book series and film. The game is based primarily on the movie, which in turn is based on the plots of the first three books of the series: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room and The Wide Window.
Prior to the release of the game, which coincided with the film’s premiere in 2004, several screenshots with what appears to be a beta version of the game have been circulating on the web. The level layout seems to be somewhat different from the final build, and Violet Baudelaire’s dress in the beta more closely resembled that of in the film (the retail build had her wearing a similar yet more raggedy outfit). The HUD was also different:
The PC version also had some leftover content, such as unused cheat codes, some of which can still be activated, and a Violet character model that was based on the original book incarnations.
