I just heard about this; I've been out of Retro and the scene for years because of NDA related things, but it's great to see that this project is finally going to be a thing!
However, I'm disappointed that it's clearly back to its MMF2 origins (the physics, the camera, everything gives it away). I would absolutely love to help shape this to be a better final product, but, it seems that the project has come a long way and is already near completion, and I doubt that Joe Waters would want to have to move everything over to a new something... else.
Yet, here, I'll still offer my services to polish the system/programming stuff that are in dire need of polishing, namely the physics and the camera, to make them the most accurately possible to a Genesis games (I'm anal when it comes to accuracy). Well, as much accurate as MMF allows me to make it, anyways; I don't mess with/never used any of these game making suits, so I don't know how much freedom you are allowed with them. And I usually never ever offer myself to do any non-comercial projects; I'm already occupied with professional game project contracts. So my offer is kind of a big deal, actually.
I mean, a game that is sort of like the spiritual sucessor of the Genesis trilogy? It must at least play like the originals, I am right? As even Knuckles' Chaotix—which is the de facto sequel of Sonic & Knuckles—plays like the originals (up to a certain point).
Tell him to hit me up if interested.
That's quite the kind and generous offer. Maybe send Nitemare a message on Sonic United and direct him to your post? I think that's where he is active now in terms of posting updates on the game. I highly recommend you contact him directly. If you can genuinely offer your services to make this game more accurate and even more amazing I'm almost certain he'd welcome the offer.
Also just checking out Sonic United now Nitemare posted this along with the video:
Thought it'd been long enough to warrant a new teaser, I'm still slowly working away at it when I can. It's still a little while away, however I'm really looking forward to just getting it finished now. Spent a good while recently going back to all complete zones, smartening them up and really trying to make each one feel unique. There's very little left to do now in comparison to what's done.
Sounds promising! It sounds like he's made some substantial progress as I posted earlier. The final and finished game is probably still at least a few months away but it seems like the finish line is in sight. It's exciting really. Since Sonic Classic and Sonic Axiom we haven't had a high quality and completed Sonic fangame in what feels like years. I know Hez is still plugging away on Classic 2 which I'm also looking forward to but games like this only come around every couple of years or so. I'm so excited to play XG when it's done. It just looks so damn fucking good from that teaser.
Here's hoping Nitemare makes the final push and finishes the game. I'm sure it'll turn out amazing.
