The folks over at Did You Know Gaming have put together a new video covering the early history of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series.

The video covers the development of the first game, which was built using a modified version of the engine of Neversoft's previous game, Apocalypse, which starred Bruce Willis. Early builds of the game – the ones showed to Tony Hawk in an attempt to obtain his approval for the game – used Bruce Willis' Apocalypse character model. You will find a handful of other interesting facts about the first Tony Hawk's Pro Skater in the video below.
