Let's start:
This screenshot: http://dream17.abime.net/xtra_worms_tw01.jpg
on the Worms extra page is damaged.

The Witchwood Techdemo is in the Windows category, though it is for dos and not a full version, thus belongs in the demos section.

I'm not the first person to discover the witchwood demo, I'm just the first person to work more with it, by recording the selfplaying gameplay, trying to decode the map format and documentng the game's keyset. However I found it in my CD catalog without knowing that it was already found and listed over at abandonware-france.

This line: "So far as I can tell, no information concerning this game had been released prior to Martyn Brown posting some information regarding cancelled and unfinished titles on his blog on March 30th, 2007."
(or similar) is false for:
Witchwood, Allegiance and Rollcage. Trailers of these three games appeared on the CD of the german magazine Power Play in 1995. I've uploaded them to youtube:

Additionally this is the selfplaying witchwood gameplay:

I've collected promotional screenshots of Witchwood, these should probably be shown on this website aswell:

I've provided all known (to me) sources for each screenshot.

There's a an amiga demo of The Speris Legacy that I've found a while ago. It seems to feature a level that is not in the final version. You can download it here:

The Worms 2 Offline demo should probably be called "Worms 2 Cavern Demo",
There is a third demo of Worms 2 that is known as the "Worms 2 Island Demo", I can provide a download link for it if needed.

There's at least one, maybe two demos of Worms Forts under Siege. I can provide these, too, if you want.

It seems like Project X 2 soundtrack parts by Björn Lynne were released promotionally in xm format. I can provide those aswell.

This should be all for now, but there is more to come.
