[...]The collision response shown in this "proto" video is the default collision method used in most pre-made game-making engines, like, well, MMF.
...And looking closely now, the collision bounding box is even worse than I've previously described. *sigh*

Regardless of your personal views on this hoax, the fact that it fooled a good chunk of the internet means there has to have been some "knowledge and effort" involved. It's the closest attempt at this sort of thing yet.
The fact it can't penetrate the walls of Sonic Retro, home to crazy people who substitute oxygen for 68000 assembly isn't grounds for something to suck. The only annoying thing about this was Yuji Naka's time being wasted because that paints the community in a bad light, otherwise, no harm was done.

All the vibe I got from this thread was "HOW DARE HE TRICK SO MANY PEOPLEEEE" "UGH HOW DARE PEOPLE MAKE HOAXES", caring WAY TOO MUCH about a fucking hoax that I was initially happy that it was made in hopes that it would spark a discussion to something somewhat more interesting like, idk, the discussion of the Tokyo Toy Show build in itself and people trying to replicate the graphics on their own or something??? Not that there wasn't people posting those things, but a dozen useful posts on 20 pages of people spouting the same tiring thing, some boarding on childish behavior isn't worth it at all.

It doesn't help when admin's were deleting posts and supporting this. I wanted to believe it as much as everyone else but come on, it was so obviously fake.
I also am not liking how much fame this shitty fan-game is getting. It isn't very good. the ONLY thing this helped me do was give me motivation to keep the hunt on for new stuff.
EDIT: Oh, and I'm still 100 % convinced it was him on this board. He admitted it was MMF (which it happened to be, hmm?) then all the sudden was like "lol jk I'm not even the guy". Personally, I'd ban his ass.

I don't think there'd have been nearly as much fuss about this if it weren't for the fact that the first thing people did was report it to Yuji Naka himself.
