The Return of Sonic XG?

Now, I have a comment on the game. What I realize is that in it, the scenarios of all levels are well detailed, including the background of each one. But the same does not seems to be true at the ice level. If you pay attention, you can see that the background is more simple, unnasertive, perhaps tied only to the level in space (however, in that case, it makes some sense to be that way). So, shouldn't the mountains in the background of the level have more detail?
Anyway, just a thought. The game already looks amazing, very, very beautiful, and I quite enjoyed the new gimmicks in each stage. Great job!

Here's hoping he persists and completes the game. I look forward to playing the finished release.

Can't wait to finally play this game as it was meant to be played... right the way through! Please tell me it doesn't end in fucking space though.

External loop at 1:15 is really nifty and lovingly-defiant of natural physics. Inspired by Crackers?
The golden stage is phenomenal. One of the most original level ideas I've seen since the inside-the-computer stages in Shadow the Hedgehog.
The chunky-looking snowflakes are delightful.
Metal Sonic looks particularly lanky. Really feels like he's "hanging" there, suspended by his thrusters, rather than just magically floating. I like it a lot.
The sherbet-looking color scheme in the golden stage, the desert stage, and the mechanical stage is really effective. I don't know why, but it just evokes a sense of "this is new. This is something you haven't seen before." I hope it has something to do with the plot, as if Eggman is fucking with the world with chaos energy or some bullshit like that. I'm a sucker for that stuff.
I'm trying to get in touch with this dude so I can donate him a couple of bucks via PayPal.

Not that it's a bad thing though, they've aged pretty well, and we're finally seeing the game being brought to life as it was intended to.

Cool that its still being worked on.
It's back in MMF2. Last year or so, I gave what graphical assets I had left of Retro-Sonic XG to Joe/Nitemare when he told me he was working on finishing the original Sonic XG. Glad to see it's looking like it'll reach the finish line after all these years!
