Have you read about UFO (United Functions and Objects) by John Sargeant, c.1992? It wasn’t prototype-based, but your email otherwise brought it to mind. There’s an overview paper here:

There was a spate of concurrent OO logic language papers in the late 80s/early 90s. A skim of OOPSLA proceedings from that era should turn up many. And before that there was ThingLab (in Smalltalk).
