Well, since I didn't give many updates on this project since July (I was pending approval and kind of forgot about the forum)… Some things have happened, some stuff has changed, names, places, ideas, etc.
The biggest change was the name of the project, which changed from Sonic Henceforth to…
… Sonic the Hedgehog.
“What the hell, man? We already have three games with that name!”
Well, to be honest, when we started the project we had this stupid and naive idea that we could change Sonic the Hedgehog. So that's why we gave the name “Sonic Henceforth” in other words, Sonic “from now on”. But, as we were developing the story and everything else we had this epiphany: “We're not changing Sonic the Hedgehog, we're recreating it!”
Yeah, we're kind of narcissists.
So, as we're rebooting everything… Why don't we give it a proper "reboot name"? Sonic the Hedgehog it is.
I can't reveal much about the game's story yet, but expect for something amazing… Well, the game’ story occurs in Sonic OVA's world. We want to explain how the Land of Sky and Land of Darkness were created. Something involving Chaos Emeralds and… Shhh… I've already told too much.
Our Sonic, a custom model made by us just for the game itself.
A 3D view of it.
Dr. Robotnik (Made by Polygon Jim), also custom made for the game only.
Rhinobot (Made by Polygon Jim). Every stage will have some badnicks and some Eggbots... Expect different kinds of enemies.
The songs are maybe one of my favorite things about the project. Trying to please Retro and Next-Gen gamers, we have for each song a 16-bits and a HD version.
