It looks pretty but god it burns my eyes. Can you decorate the grass some to mute some of that saturation?

I was actually noticing that as I was posting the screenshot, I'll see what we can do about it.

You can use keys 1 through 4 to switch resolutions from 1x to 4x respectively, and R key restarts an act.

Planned:
Screen size in options menu.
Act select unlocked after demo is finished.

The game is remarkably solid and bug free from our experience. Please report anything you find though.
Only known significant bug is Sonic coming to a dead stop in the spiral tunnels, and getting stuck in the entrance of one if you enter it slowly and awkwardly.

Just to echo on the brief comment I've left on your SAGE page, this game made my day.
I had a huge grin on my face throughout the whole demo.

Massive props to your team.

*Now I should really pick up the missus* :v:/>

While there might never be a worthy Sonic 4 (unless you count Sonic Advance) this is definitely a worthy Sonic 0. Great job!

I love this! It's all so vibrant, and the inclusion of the Concept Rabbit design made me chuckle :)

Oh my goodness, how did I miss this. It's gorgeous! I've always wanted to see a Sonic prequel game riffing on all that discarded backstory and prototype stuff, this is like a dream come true.

If there's anything that actually caught my eye for once at Sage Expo, it was this. I've got Sonic Overture downloaded and I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to play it (I'm sort of busy at the moment), but I'm sure the whole package it will blow me away as much as the visuals and music have so far. Good job on that front and keep it up. I really look forward to continued updates to this game.

This is one of at least two fangames I've played at SAGE that asks to set up controller options when you first boot it up and then when you get to the main menu you have to use a keyboard :v:

It was fun. Maybe you overused the spiral a bit, it occurs at least 5 times in the zone.

Fullscreen does not work for me, could you make an option for 5x or 6x window size?
