ZombiU is actually a re-imagining of one of Ubisoft's very first games, simply titled "Zombi". Similar themes and mechanics are used in both games. If a character's health is depleted, they turn into a zombie and roam the room they died in. The main difference is that Zombi was set in a mall, like George A. Romero's "Dawn of the Dead".

Early in development, Portal 2 was planned to feature no portals at all. Valve focused on a new gameplay mechanic called "F-Stop", and though the new mechanic received some positive feedback, every single play tester was disappointed with the absence of portals. Valve then revised the game to include portals.
Shadow of the Colossus was originally going to have 48 Colossi, but that number was cut down to 24, and finally to 16. Some of the designs were fully fleshed out.
