There was a topic not too long ago about Sonic title card fonts being spotted in the wild.

Here's one used to advertise a Sega arcade game back in 1980

Speaking of which, you can select which Special Stage you want to enter in the Level Select menu in Sonic 3. The numbers on Sound Test will determine which Special Stage you will enter, if you enter in them holding A + START. That's why you can access the Secret Special Stages by selecting the song number 07 on the Sound Test, and selecting Special Stage 2 with A + START.

For example:

In the first example (Sonic 3), I choose the Sound Test cursor to 07. You don't really need to make the music play; you just need to change the variable number. If I hold A and press START in Special Stage 2, the game will send me to Special Spage ID 08. This applies for Sonic 3 & Knuckles as well!

In the other example (Sonic 3 & Knuckles), I choose the Sound Test cursor to 02. If I A+START in Special Stage 1, the game will send me to Sonic 3's Special Stage #3. If I A+START in Special Stage 2, the game will send me to Sonic & Knuckles's Special Stage #3.

If you don't hold A while you press START, however, the game will send you to the "Current Special Stage ID" value stored in RAM. This workd in both Sonic 3 and S3K. It doesn't work in Sonic & Knuckles alone, though.



What about the Sonic 3C prototypes?

Now that is blowing my mind, who knew? I always believed that was a complete in-house title.

If I'm reading that wiki correctly, they also did SADX and the party mode of Secret Rings?

SADX is red, meaning while there are some shared staff, we're(CRV is) only barely sure. Secret Rings is marked in grey, meaning we're somewhat sure — but we(Retro) already had them listed on our wikis as the developer of party mode games so that's a moot point. What is interesting to me is the entries on the three developers there that we have pages for have credits for games not listed on the GDRI page...

Grey means "support," but I've been phasing that out.

Sonic 3D Blast [Megadrive/Genesis]: After doing the "baracuda" code, aside from being able to skip levels, if you are in a special stage and do a+start you automatically get the emerald.

[Too lazy to see if it has been mentioned]

According to their website, a Japanese game developer called Polygon Magic assisted with the PS3 version of Sonic 2006. The English site doesn't say what; the Japanese site says "開発内容:背景モデリング", which I think means they assisted with background art (someone correct me on that if I am wrong).

Something I noticed today when going for the good ending in Chaotix is that the colour of the chaos rings match the characters, except Charmy.

Yellow - Tails
Green - Vector
Pink - Knuckles
Purple - Espio
Blue - Sonic


Also in the ending Sonic has peach legs.
