Okay, randomly had another one of my stupid thoughts while I was on the clock today, and I had to wait all shift to get off and come here to yak about it lmao. I know I don't have the best track record on here, but I figured I'd share it anyway and see what you all think. I'm sure you read the title (I really hope so lol)- I was thinking about the concept of tiny budget Sonic games, and no, I don't mean Sonic 4 (though I'll mention it later for sure)- I'm thinking of games like Blue Sphere, Sonic Labyrinth, and Sonic Pinball Party. :D Allow me to elaborate... In the event Sega's newest Sonic products rejuvenate things a bit, I'm hopeful we could start seeing Sonic games at a slightly more frequent rate. Certainly not the old "3 huge titles per year" thing we had before, since that was a huge detriment to things, but at least 1 or 2 games period each year. I was thinking about how they could do this, and suddenly I started thinking of games like they used to do back in the day, like Blue Sphere or Tails Skypatrol- these one off, almost minigame-esque games that would release alongside the bigger ones to keep the schedule padded out with new stuff. So basically I was just imagining a world where once or twice a year, we'd get a little budget Sonic title that's significantly more... short and sweet than the major releases, but is nonetheless a good time and is very affordable- like anywhere from $5-10 for each one, kinda like the 3DS and Switch releases of Sonic 1 and 2. This would also be a good way for Sega to try new ideas without infringing on the core Sonic experience in the big titles, and maybe even allow old ideas to be revisited. Imagine a Sonic Labyrinth 2 where you can actually run and it's good lmao, and there's like, 100 mini stages to solve with all sorts of fun Sonic series gimmicks, a la Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Oh, and throw in a procedurally generated "endless mode" like blue sphere did for good measure. I'd buy that lmao. But yeah, that was basically it. What do you guys think? Am I foaming at the mouth again lol? I'm not 100% serious about this btw, it was just a fun idea I came up with a work to keep me occupied. But who knows? Maybe in this imaginary universe we finally get that dedicated chao garden game we've always wanted. P.S. No mobile exclusivity. Forgot to mention that. These aren't meant to be mobile games, I imagine they'd release on all platforms. So, what can you guys come up with? What bite size sonic game would you like to see but solemnly understand will never exist?
