The House of Dead (死者の家 Shisha no ie?) is an incomplete, prototype version of the 1996 rail shooting arcade game The House of the Dead. The ROM was submitted to MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) on September 6, 2018.[1]

The prototype only has two of the four levels, along with audio and visual elements that were changed or removed in the final release.



Prototype Final Description
Chariot prototype Chariot Chariot was originally named after Bacchus, the Roman god of agriculture, wine and fertility. His weak point diagram also has more color than in the final version.
Hangedman prototype Handgedman Hangedman was originally named Devilon, which is now used for the bat creatures found in the House of the Dead series. His type number also was changed from 16 to 041. Like Chariot, Hangedman's weak point diagram originally had more color.
