Here's a bit of alternate background art from the KQ1 SCI remake.
This is how the gates of Castle Daventry originally looked:

This is Castle Daventry as it appears in the final game:
In the WIP screens, the castle appears much older, more time-worn, and more vine-encrusted. Interesting that they went for a much "cleaner" look in the final game.
Also, where are the gate guards in the early pictures? Was the new introduction cutscene in place yet, or did the remake at this early stage mimic the original AGI KQ1's beginning more closely? I wish I knew.
