Gamepopper101 has found some beta-differences in an early trailer for this game: “Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People (SBCG4AP) Episode 1 – Homestar Ruiner (Yeah I know, long title), it’s a wiiware (and PC) game from TellTale Games. Differences from final game include:
Link from the X-Cult hack forum, has found some unused characters in the code of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for the Wii: Birdo, Donkey Kong, Jet & Silver. Other “hidden” characters like Shy Guy, Goomba or the Monkey, are normally used only in the background of the game, but thanks to the WiiRD they became playable and some of them have even animations for the various olympic games.
Wiggler’s Garden was going to be called Petey’s Greenhouse and the original story was about a Piranha Plant that was making a mess in Wiggler’s Garden. Apparently, Petey Piranha was betrayed by a member of his army and was now making a mess in his greenhouse.
Toadsworth was going to be the shopkeeper in the item shop, but was replaced by Monty Mole. But Toadsworth is still mentioned in the shop sometimes even though he is never seen. Another thing that is interesting is that in the Player’s small windows there was going to be an X in front of the money and stars amount, but was taken out in the final version, probably because coins could reach over 100.
Intresting yet sadly, there was going to be WiFi in it, but it never came true. Probably from a lack of time or memory within the game. [Info from Mariowiki]
