Interesting Changes

01 - Red Bulborb

Demo Final
Plump specimens are best spit-

roasted whole, stuffed with a lemon and a slab of bacon.

Plump specimens are best spit-

roasted whole, stuffed with a lime and a slab of bacon.

Only total starters with no taste in flavor stuff red bulborbs with lemons when cooking.

02 - Hairy Bulborb

Demo Final
Pluck the feathers, wrap in foil

along with a halved lemon, and place directly on the grill. The foil should protect the bird from scorching, and the lemons will give it an  elegant hint of citrus.

Remove all of the bulborb's hair, 

wrap the beast in foil along with  a halved lemon, and place it directly on the grill. The foil  should protect the carcass from  scorching, and the lemon will  give the meat an elegant hint of  citrus.

Louie seems to think that the Hairy Bulborb is a bird in the demo. Which is weird.

04 - Dwarf Red Bulborb

Demo Final
For a blissful bisque,

mince finely and stir in with heavy cream, artichoke hearts, and a pinch of black pepper.

For a blissful bisque,

mince the entire beast finely and stir in with heavy cream,  artichoke hearts, and a pinch of  black pepper. Heat slowly until  piping hot. Mmmmm... Rich and  creamy!

Louie really like this dish in the final description.

07 - Spotty Bulbear

Demo Final
For an unrivaled green curry, peel

away the skin, pulverize the juicy innards, and stew until curiously fragrant. Spice to taste.

For an unrivaled green curry, 

peel away the spotty bulbear's  skin, pulverize the juicy innards,  and stew until curiously fragrant.

Spices aren't necessary in the final recipe.

08 - Dwarf Bulbear

Demo Final
Remove innards, stuff with sage 

and finely-aged prosciutto, and  broil until golden-brown. 

Remove innards, stuff with sage 

and finely aged prosciutto, and  broil until golden brown. The ultimate crowd pleasers!

Endorsed by Louie in the final script.

12 - Bulbmin

Demo Final
Grind the meat and season

with allspice, salt, and ground white pepper. Press the seasoned meat into bratwurst links, then pan-fry them with onions.  Just before serving, smother  the brats with dijon mustard  and sauerkraut.

Grind the meat and season

with allspice, salt, and ground white pepper. Press the  seasoned meat into meat satchels, then panfry them with  onions. Prior to serving,  smother the brats with dijon  mustard and sauerkraut. Buns are optional.

The treasure "Meat Satchel" is mentioned in place of bratwurst links in the final script.

13 - Fiery Blowhog

Demo Final
Roast this flavorful beast for

several hours, letting it stew  in its own succulent juices.

Roast this flavorful beast for

several hours, letting it stew  in its own succulent juices. Don't worry about overcooking this beast...it's scorch-proof.

The fireproof nature of this creature is not apparent in the demo's description.

19 - Gatling Groink

Demo Final
Stir-fry with carmelized onions

and pellet posy sprouts. Spoon over a bowl of fluffy white rice. Season to taste.

Remove the cannon and ammo 

stockpile, then vigorously  tenderize the meat with a heavy  mallet. Stir-fry with caramelized  onions and figwort sprouts.  Spoon over a steaming bowl of  fluffy white rice and douse with  chili sauce.

The initial preparation instructions aren't in the early script, and the type of sprouts was changed from pelly posy to figwort.

21 - Iridescent Glint Beetle

Demo Final
These delicious treats are

exceptionally rare. I can sell them back at home for a fortune. Then, I can use the money to upgrade my kitchen and buy galactic-class ingredients.

This precious treat is

exceptionally rare. I could sell  it back at home for a fortune! Then, I could use the cash to upgrade my kitchen, buy galactic-class ingredients, and even star in my own cooking show...  The Insect Gourmet!

Louie's dreams of a television show aren't in the demo script.

22 - Doodlebug

Demo Final
Looking for a flavor that will

surprise and delight your  guests? Try this beast's legmeat in your next risotto!

Looking for a flavor that will

surprise and delight your  guests? This beast's aroma may  surprise your guests, but it  won't be delightful!

The Doodlebug's leg meat is edible in the demo script (as it is in the early English script) but not in the final game.

23 - Female Sheargrub

Demo Final
Layer with sliced avacado and

gouda, then broil until the meat is choice and the cheese is  browned. The beast is most  flavorful if caught and cooked  just after laying its eggs. 

For an unforgettable quiche,

slice this creature up and mix  with four eggs, two vine-ripened tomatoes, diced zucchini, and  generous handfuls of feta and  swiss. Bake until crusty and  golden. This beast is most  flavorful if caught and cooked  just after laying its eggs.

The recipes for the Female and Male sheargrubs were rewritten and swapped in the final script.

24 - Male Sheargrub

Demo Final
For an unforgettable quiche,

Slice and mix with four eggs, two vine-ripened tomatoes, diced zucchini, and generous handfuls of feta and swiss. Bake until crusty and golden.

bottom of a casserole dish and  layer with sliced avocado. Bake until the meat is choice and the  cheese is lusciously browned.

The recipes for the Female and Male sheargrubs were rewritten and swapped in the final script.

33 - Careening Dirigibug

Demo Final
Shuck from the shell, mince,

and shape into small cakes. Pan-sear the cakes until crusted, but be careful  not to overcook the  delicate meat.

Pull off the balloonlike air sacs, 

mince the meaty abdomen, and  shape it into small cakes. Pan- sear the cakes until crusted, but  be careful not to overcook the  delicate meat. When ready to serve, garnish the plate with the vibrant air sacs. Even the  most discerning dinner guest will be dazzled by the colorful  presentation!

The demo description is missing what to do with the Dirigibug's balloons.

36 - Greater Spotted Jellyfloat

Demo Final
Like a fine cheese, the aroma of

this beast can be oppressive, but its flavor must be experienced.

Like a fine cheese, the aroma of

this fluid floater can be  oppressive, but its flavor must  be experienced to be believed.  Also makes an unforgettable  nondairy spread!

The application of this creature as a nondairy spread is undocumented in the early description.

37 - Fiery Dweevil

Early Final
Grind up the entire creature,

cook thoroughly in a pan, and mix with a spicy tomato sauce. Makes the best sloppy joes!

The search for a gourmet, high-

protein salad-topping alternative to bacon bits is over! Grind this spicy dweevil into tasty micro- chunks and toss them generously over your salad to add instant flair AND flavor!

Sloppy Joes or bacon bits? The choice is obvious.

41 - Volatile Dweevil

Demo Final
This scorching species will 

spontaneously combust if left in direct sunlight.

This scorching species combusts

upon contact with the tongue.

The conditions for combustion are different between versions.

44 - Wollywog

Demo Final

shaped into a patty, and flame- broiled on a grill. Slap on a tomato, some lettuce, ketchup,  and slide it between a sesame- seed bun for the ultimate  beast-burger experience.

Wollywogs are best ground up, 

shaped into a patty, and flame- broiled on a grill. Slap on  tomato slices, lettuce, onions,  ketchup, and slide the patty  between a sesame-seed bun for the ultimate beast-burger  experience.

Onions. Also names the Wollywog as a patty in the final version.

45 - Wogpole

Demo Final
Can be eaten raw, but much

more flavorful when steamed or grilled.  It's heavenly in lasagna, but feel  free to experiment with this lush ingredient.

Wogpoles can be eaten raw, but 

they're much more flavorful when steamed or grilled. Also  heavenly in risotto! Feel free to  experiment with this lush ingredient.

The sample recipe given was changed from lasagna to risotto.

53 - Skitter Leaf

Demo Final
Generally used only as a garnish,

this leaf has a strong oaky flavor that tends to overpower  the delicate, intermingling  flavors of a gourmet dish.

The superb amalgamation of juicy

meat and leafy greens ensures  that the skitter leaf will be the  new spinach!

The culinary purpose of the Skitter Leaf was upgraded in the final game.

65 - Horsetail

Demo Final
Remove and discard the 

primitive, scaly leaves, then  blanch the tender heart in a pine nut broth.

Remove and discard the 

primitive, scaly leaves, then  blanch the tender stock in a buttery broth.

While "pine nut broth" is a real thing, NOA decided to change it to something else anyway.

67 - Margaret

Demo Final
Carefully peel off the fragile 

leaves and toss with a fresh  spinach and escarole salad.

Can be eaten fresh out of the 

soil, but it's much more flavorful  when incorporated into a  heavenly veggie lasagna.

Another completely different recipe.

71 - Burrowing Snagret

Demo Final
Skewer meaty morsels and 

barbecue over an open flame.

Slice the serpentine torso into

thin medallions, skewer on a  metal rod with Hocotate onions,  and barbecue over an open  flame.

The basic description in the demo was improved.

77 - Ranging Bloyster

Demo Final
The gills are best prepared deep-

fried in an herb and breadcrumb batter. Also tasty poached and  drenched with a peanut sauce.

The gills are best prepared 

deep-fried in an herb and bread- crumb batter. Also tasty  poached and drenched with fine soy sauce.

The type of sauce changed in the final script.

Unknown Entries

These three entries don't match up with any description in the final game. Since the order the prototype stores these entries is different than in the final game, they cannot be properly matched up. Possible creatures are Fiery Bulblax, Anode Dweevil, and Pileated Snagret.

Entry 31

Nothing seems to tame this creature's unappetizing odor. Not even baking or boiling it for hours! It should never, ever be eaten again. By anyone.

This is similar to the early Raging Long Legs entry, but the finalized entry for that enemy is also in the demo script...

Entry 49

This truffle-like treat is best  sliced into strips, soaked in olive oil, and placed on top of a slab of fresh mozzarella.

Entry 76

Inedible. Previous digestion attempts resulted in rampant Pikmin-hurling.

Pellet posy?

40 - Munge Dweevil

Demo Final
