Sonic Overture is a fan made prequel to the original Sonic the Hedgehog, created to tell the story of Sonic's adventures on Christmas Island.
Sonic Overture takes place on Christmas Island, Sonic's birthplace. Dr. Eggman is mining the island for the precious substance known as phossil to power his machines as he investigates the mysterious South Island and the Special Zone. Sonic sets out to foil Eggman's plans. Meanwhile, a stranger from Christmas Island is following Sonic...

This game plays on much of the scrapped prototype material of Sonic the Hedgehog, such as canned designs and unused level imagery.

I'm really digging the art direction the game is taking! Hoping to see something in motion soon.

I do believe we can. The ground tiles are rather uniform in a lot of places, we're working on variations.

Holy cow, that's an excellent waterfall! It flows very well, and I'm also enjoying the level art, it all looks solid and professional!

Judging from the screenshots and that animated GIF, this game is looking really promising so far. That waterfall looks great.

This looks really neat, and that waterfall is SUPER sexy.

Just curious, what engine is this running on?

It's running on Sonic Worlds Delta 1.4.3 (After Party Special Release)

So pretty much the most recent version.

(sorry for the double post, wanted to bump this up a little)

We've been working more on the game, here's a new improved palmtree, new bushes and bell flowers.
