    Backstory:
    So just at the start of things so lets see how this goes. The synopsis of the project was possibly to re-tell/parody the Adventure series with Chao, hopefully adding in some humor and fun into more of Sonic's intense/dark games. Almost as if Chao had staged a play or an amusement park around Sonic.

    Gameplay:

    Updates
    • I actually gave the project a name and logo
    • Updated graphics some still WIP of course

    New
    • Some new Casino Night bouncers
    • Cannons, want these to play very much like DK barrels
    • Fruit trees: wanted a lego like feel to the world so when you attack a tree for fruit it breaks apart
    • Animal costumes: I loved giving Chao animals in SA2 and inspired my many a mod where Sonic gets a costume, I wanted to give some costumes here with some power ups in the mix

    I see some fun potential with this; the idea of rockets on the loops is a novel idea. :)

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    Wow, what a novel idea! That's how you show off a game idea folks!

    :v:

    Nah it's ok I can handle snark, I'm British

    I understand theres not a lot presented here and it is more a proof of concept than most topics but I didn't really go into this with a goal other than make something fun but small in scope as I am working on it in between life.

    So apologies of course if there is a format or template that fan game topics are recommended to take... but I'll hopefully get an engine demo sorted soon for folk to try out.

    Bit of an update, so I guess I'll write a change log and share a video

    Sorry for a random bit of lag not too sure what caused it and yeah I can't collect rings even when in a simple path

    Looks interesting. I like the idea of the rockets that carry the Chao through loops. hahaha

    Hey all, so mini-update. So wanted to share an idea I have been trying out as a tileset for a level. The notion was to create something that felt "fake" or toy like.

    I dig it! It fits the Chao theme very well, and even reminds me of Sonic Advance 3 a bit.
     
  12. This game looks adorable! Very reminiscent of Yoshi's Island and Kirby 3 in the best possible way.

    This is cool! The ideas I like the most are the rocket loops and the ball that bounces you around.

    Are you going to make the sprites rotate as they go on slopes? What do you have planned next besides levels?

    This is the best thing (I've seen all day). No, really. This looks super fun.

    This is really really cool!!! I love how cute it is, gameplay seems nice and original, sprites are adorable, and the rocket mechanic is so nice! Now I wish SEGA released something similar to this... maybe for mobile or something.

    A small update, I have been so busy with freelancing that I haven't had time to sit down and work on this a lot but I've done a bit here and there.
    Hoping to get a demo soon, just need to polish up some graphics.

    So this video provides a collection of small changes, but Ill point out some new ones.

    YouTube Link

    - Animal power ups, no graphics but these provide a new move that can lead to new paths as well as finding collectables.
    - Tikal, Ok I have been playing crash bandicoot Collect her and she will provide an extra hit (a power up suit also gives an extra hit)
    - Pipes, breaking new game dev ground.

    And outside of the video, characters are coming, heres the first batch.
