Lemmings is a puzzle game developed by DMA Design (now Rockstar North) and published by Psygnosis in 1991, originally for the Commodore Amiga.
The popularity of the game on the Amiga led to its rapid porting to many other platforms, and is considered to be one of the most widely-ported video games of all time. [Info taken from wikipedia]
The Lemmings Arcade prototype was never released in arcades, though a playable version for PC was found and dumped many years after 1991. It seems that they had planned on using a trackball and buttons to control it, though my friend optiK and I have been discussing that it seems to be based more off the genesis build than anything. Still, it feels somewhat incomplete…

Awesome :) Props to Mike for sharing this!
None of the original team worked on this, did they?
I believe the trackball control method has been confirmed though…
Also rumour has it reason it never made it coin-op was that feedback from plastering groups was less than positive, with people complaint gameplay was too sedentary for coin-op play…
Did someone check the files with a hex? Just asking.
