theMeatly is standing in the same pose than in Chapter 1 instead of holding a tuba.



The Searchers' model was completely different from their final design. Each hand possesses three fingers instead of five, with two longer ones closely resembling a tuning fork. Their arms seem to also be thinner than the new model. Their face also seems to be painted partly with grayish-white colors (yellowish-brown due to the game's lighting). They appear to be slightly shorter than Henry. Instead of crawling, they just move in a similar fashion to the slug's movement while swaying their arms. They collapse into pieces whenever they damaged Henry, or even simply running into obstacles or walls.

Pre-Update Final

They collapse into pieces whenever they damaged Henry, or even simply running into obstacles or walls.

Sammy Lawrence

Sammy's appearence is completely different from his final version. His body structure is slender and has more inhuman-looking skin texture. His overalls is fairly different, looking bigger and slightly loosed. His shoes and the lower parts of his overalls are melted into ink, appearing to be made out of sticky glue while he walks. While his mask look identical, it has a duplicated texture from the back while the hole from the mask's mouth is bigger.

Pre-Update Final
Sammy Pose

Sammy's animation during his monologue is simply him standing idle unlike the final version wich is more various and moving. He doesn't have any dustpan in his hand when he knocks out Henry.
