[SPOILERS] Soma early version explained (Super Secret archive decoded) !

Someome did a great job in datamining and doing some actual "intelligence analisis" on the contents of the Super Secret archive, and managed to piece together a coherent script and level design concept for the early version of Soma (one made around 2013 that apparently still used the HPL 2 Engine).

This great video showcases how the game should have looked like in its initial concept, and highlights the differences between the actual released version of Soma and the early concept.





IMPORTANT: All images, sounds, textures and media included in the video is taken from the Super Secret archive file and other game files from the full game. All the content presented in the video has been officially released by Frictional Games!
I do not own or had any part in the making of this video, i just found it on Youtube!

Around 9:30 he mentions a blackbox recording you could listen to after the (now headless) diver died due to Simon, but he doesn't let you listen to it in the video, is there anyway I can hear that soundfile?

At that point in the video, there's a sound of heavy breathing (the same sound that "old Simon" makes in the pilot seat at Omicron). Maybe that's the blackbox recording?
