With final exam season upon us, I'd like to introduce you to a procrastination resource called The Cutting Room Floor (, a wiki devoted to documenting content in video games which was cut before the final release but remains accessible by glitches or by poking through the code or resource files. As we will see, almost all well known games contain content which is inaccessible during normal gameplay, including hilarious messages left by the developers, concept art, debug menus, and even complete additional levels and areas. I'll be showing some of the most bizarre things I've found on this site, as well as talking about how you can dig into your favourite games and discover new secrets.
