Glad you two like it! I'll be tweaking things as I go, so nothing is really final. It's going to be a hack of Sonic 1, but I cheated a bit and just mocked things up for this "screenshot". I'll be back from vacation at the start of next month, so I'll be seeing about getting something playable whipped up then. As for the comments about the art style, it's simple just because I'm not really a great spriter yet and can't seem to get good results (yet) with more complicated designs, so I'm sort of playing to what I'm decent at and shooting for sort of a geometric, Sonic CDish style. I'll probably start a topic for it around when I get back, so I'll have some more for you folks to look at soon. Thanks for the feedback!
