South Park [N64 PSX PC – Beta]

South Park [N64 PSX PC – Beta]

South Park (originally titled South Park: Deeply Impacted during development) is a FPS based on the first few seasons of the popular TV series of the same name. The game is powered by the Turok 2 game engine and was released in 1998 by Acclaim for the PC, Nintendo 64 and PlayStation. Acclaim had announced a sequel to be released sometime in 2000, however this project never surfaced. [Info from Wikipedia]

As noticed by BattleBattleBattle, the game’s plot was initially different from what we got in the final version:

The close proximity of the blasted piece of space debris causes the local turkeys to revolt. It’s now up to you to stop those gobbling overgrown chickens who paint half of their faces blue, trying desparately to infringe on American lifestyle by refusing to get eaten. Oh, and Cartman’s mom was kidnapped by aliens, too. To add insult to injury, Skuzzlebutt’s also out of control, making it imperative that Kyle, Cartman, Stan, and Kenny step in, armed with a host of gadgets ranging from cow launchers to fart dolls.

We never see Skuzzlebutt out of control.

The beta multiplayer had 5 different modes to play with, as “Capture the Flag”, a “Grudge Match” and “Kick the Baby”, but in the end only the classic deathmatch mode was finished. The radar in multiplayer was different too (there was only 1 radar for everyone) and in an early screen we notice a level that could have been removed.

Also, Acclaim originally had planned two different styles of games, with the PlayStation version theoretically appearing in a Lost Viking-style of gameplay instead to be a FPS like the N64 and PC versions. A South Park game for the GameBoy Color was also in development, but never released.

If you can notice more differences in the beta screens, please let us know!

    It’s been bothering me that i could have sworn that i’ve seen those guys in the armor suits, so i’ve checked and i can confirm that they are in the N64 as well as in the PSX games. I can’t recall on the PC version though, but i would expect them to be in there too.

    There was another South Park game planned for 1999 titled “A Week In South Park” – where the player character was a tourist who’d became stranded in the town and has the simple objective of surviving an entire week. I read about this in the short-lived Arcade Magazine in 1998 yet heard nothing about it afterwards.

    Actually, Cartman’s mom did get kidnapped along with a bunch of other people from the show. They can be seen in tube-like prison chambers in the Visitors’ ship.

    I know for a fact that PC version has the armor guys. I have that game. I even recorded me playing on YouTube (DryvBy2 on there). I don’t think there’s anything different at all, at least on PC and N64.
