While there is proof of this version's existence, it was never released to the public.

A special pre-release version of Alpha v1.2.0 was privately given to PC Gamer and IndieGames.com.[1] Multiple differences between this preview and the officially-released Alpha v1.2.0 can be seen in the released footage.

Differences from Alpha v1.2.0[]

    • Has the original blood texture, instead of the slime/decay.[3]
    • Runs around making pig noises, and makes zombie noises when hurt.
    • Don't have their arms up like a zombie, and they are not wielding a sword either.
  • Ghast
    • Does not have any sound effects.
