The Prototype Ancient Ruins was an early version of the Ancient Ruins that has existed in the prototype versions of the game. It was able to be accessed from The Moss Blanket.
During the Moss Blanket's creation, it was intended to be a regular cell, with a Slime Gate that existed at the zone's end originally connecting it with The Indigo Quarry. In 0.2.0, it has been disconnected from the Moss Blanket and it had its Slimes and resources disabled. In 0.3.5, it was updated along with the rest of the Moss Blanket, and was placed further away. Before 0.5.0, it was planned to be a regular cell connecting the two zones, but then it got reworked into a full zone.
The prototype Ancient Ruins had one prominent feature - a Boom Gordo, which was resting in the place of the WIP sign. It didn't explode upon popping like the current Boom Gordo. The Gordo remained in the files even after the prototype cell's removal, as it wasn't reused in the place of the other currently existing Boom Gordo and it was finally removed in 0.6.0. This area doesn't have a Slime limit, allowing Slimes to spawn here forever.
Here is a list of the Slimes and resources available in the prototype Ancient Ruins.
|Slimes||Pink Slimes, Phosphor Slimes, Tabby Slimes, Boom Slimes, The Tarr, Gold Slimes|
|Food||Carrots, Pogofruit, Cuberries, Roostros, Briar Hens and Briar Chickadoos, Hen Hens and Chickadoos|
