Vertical Inc has been through a long process and is still being worked on. Throughout the long journey, many characters, concepts and others have been added into the game. But other ideas have unfortunately been removed or scrapped from the game.
While there have been many characters that have made it into the Vertical Inc Universe, there are others who unfortunately did not make it in.
Scrapped Vertical Inc Maps
There are planned to be many maps that will come out. Some ideas have been cut from the game as the story has changed a lot from when Vertical Inc was first created.
The Black Box Project
The Black Box Project was about a massive machine that could turn people into an unknown creature which the company could use to weaponize. This idea was scrapped since the creatures were ultimately cut from the game as it was weird a didn't fit into the world of Vertical Inc.
The Diner was going to take place in a small little diner that was corrupt by a Prodigy Hive. As you would go into the sewers, the more nightmarish things got. This was cut from the game as it didn't swing well with the creator. This was also supported as the old designs were cut, changing everything about the prodigies.
Old Vertical Inc Concepts
Vertical Inc has changed for most of it's existence but it doesn't look like it will change anytime soon. Unless it surprisingly does.
The early world of Vertical Inc wasn't planned out at first. It was just supposed to be a mysterious world where everything was black and white. It was also going to be about a company making it's downfall while also looking like a myth game. There was definitely a big change when looking at the current version
The Previous Concept
The concept that was made after the previous was a bit more planned out but still was a bit empty. The mysterious creatures and prodigies were added. It was about a war against humans and the mysterious creatures with prodigies in the background. This was then changed due to the later ideas for it becoming silly while the dev didn't like the idea.
