Chaotix had gone through several changes over its development process. The following details several of these things.

Development process

Chaotix's roots can be traced back to a internal Sega Mega Drive demo, Sonic Crackers, pitching Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower joined together by an elastic connection, and must use their combined speed and strength to navigate stages. Crackers (or Sonic Stadium as it was also called) was never publically announced, but the pitch was seemingly accepted and was brought over to the new 32-bit Sega 32X platform.

Following the move, Sonic was turned into Mighty the Armadillo and Tails was removed entirely, and then a series of new characters were added, turning the project into a game about Knuckles the Echidna. Development occurred simultaneously with the 32X hardware, which may explain the need for a colour test screen and a range of (often needless) graphical effects to demonstrate the console.

A number of prototypes have since been leaked, numbered as following: 1207, 1227, 1229, 0111, 0119, 0202, 0208, 0209, 0210, 0213, 0214, and 0216.

Chaos Rings name change

Chaotix has six collectible rings called the Chaos Rings, which originally had a different name, "Holy Rings". It seems likely that the rings were renamed in order to avoid any religious controversy.
