I'm guessing it was modified for and dumped from California Arcade Extreme where it was available for play.
Neither Shoutime nor California Extreme nor any members of the MAME team are related in any way to this leak.

Also, due to the leak and the attention it got, we'll probably not see other similar games that we may have never even heard about.

I didn't think it would be related at all, as the cabinet Shoutime used malfunctioned during the expo, and did not appear to be a multi-game cabinet.

Also, one step forward and a million steps back for the public preservation of these gems... :(

It's not even properly preserved. Not just because some of the ROMs may differ from the original but, as far as I know, the board wasn't even documented and I suspect that certain bugs like the odd credits behavior may be due to that.

EDIT: See below.

It was my understanding that it was properly preserved, but the version that was leaked was modified. Is that not the case?

Indeed. The original ROM was dumped a long while ago so it's safe.

Oh, yeah, the real ones are preserved somewhere else. Forgot about that. =P

But in any case, these are not the properly preserved and documented ROMs.

... okay, I know people are feeling bad the ROM going around is not the proper preserved one or whatnot, but...
The "why" to my question seems to have been danced around, rather than answered.

I think this is rather troubling, and the details could change my perspective on the entire narrative.

If the multi-game hack was not used in any of the expos, than clearly that was not what what it was for. In which case, why does it exist?
Who made it, and for whom? And why is THAT the version that got in the hands of a leaker, as opposed to a "normal" watermark hack?

Am I seriously the only one who finds it suspect that this has a multigame hack at all to begin with?

Oh it's very strange, but knowing how quiet some of the MAME team can be and how touchy this game was to begin with, I don't expect any public details any time soon. That's fine, though. I'd like to know the details, but I'd also rather let them address this at their own pace.

Totally not important question, but I've read somewhere that the red Sonic is called "Ketchup". Is it a name given by fans or is it in the game ? What about the others ?

It's RedHot Sonic, a hint to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, since Sonic loves chilli dogs.

Its just a given name by the fans name. The yellow one is called Mustard by the fans too.

The condiment-based naming is amusing, but the only one I think can really stick is "Ketchup". ("Heh, heh, GEDDIT? CATCH UP? CATCH UP TO SANIC? HUR HUR HUR")

I'd probably suggest different puns for the others, like maybe "Lemon" (Hur hur he's yellow and a borked car haha AYE SO WITTY) or... yeah I give up on the white one.

Since they're all brothers, this nomenclature makes no sense...

They are all at least Mr. "Hedgehog"s though.
