Looks very cool, and very retro.

With this and the NES Mini, it looks like the 1980s and 1990s are beginning to repeat themselves...and with Sega and Nintendo dominating video games...just as they should.

Want this so bad :wub:

Soundtrack going to be amazing if this is any indication, going for a very Sonic CD EU/JP vibe.

I want it so much.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

So basically seeing as this guy reprogrammed the sonic 1/2 engine with original assets for modern platforms (PC, ps4, iOS etc) and it's not gooseberry fool and faithful to the original good physics etc is he basically the new Yuji Naka?

It's very cool for Sega to be collaborating like this (they already did this with sonic cd on PC ) but it's also kind of odd that what is likely to be the best sonic game in years isn't even made by sega - although I expect he's getting a lot of resources and artwork help and programming from Sonic Team.

The history of most things sonic and why it all went to gooseberry fool is worth checking out on that sonic retro site. There are loads of demos, tech demos, dumps and sprites etc too.

Just be glad it's almost certainly a download release. Imagine what he'd do if it was a physical item. :dread:

I might agree with you if Sonic Team were making it, but they aren't.

Looks decent, but a visual overhaul wouldn't have hurt. Maybe I've just been spoiled by Rayman and his new gen sheen.

I'm not sure the wonky shapes and other pixel stylings would translate that well to that look.

I'm not suggesting they copy Rayman's aesthetic exactly, just using it as an example of how retro games can be successfully reimagined for a new age.
