While new information is always valuable and essential for understanding the history of the game, I have to agree. It's kind of like scraping the bottom of the barrel here. In the sense that they were brainstorming and decided to write down their ideas. Essentially, this reminds me of how tabloids and online journalists react to celebrity tweets. They feel the need to make something out of absolutely nothing from some words a person posted on a screen. I get the relevance of early development info, but I've had a change of heart on this matter. If they had recorded themselves having conversations during these brainstorming meetings back in '92 before they ever even made an actual build of the game, it would still be ridiculous to not take it with a grain of salt. Yeah, it would be neat for the archives and for us to understand how the team worked together to create the game. But no one on here should go "That's amazing! Someone needs to make a hack with those ideas they just spewed out of their ass!" The time travel gimmick was never implemented to any degree in this game as far as the prototypes can definitively tell us, but was however done in Sonic CD the following year. Magazines alluded to time travel, but they also alluded to other things that never happened. And just about all of those zone names on those drawn out maps are irrelevant. They are just concept names. Wood Zone made it into the protos and we can all assume that's not the name it would have kept had it not been scrapped. That's just my viewpoint on it so attack me for it if you will guys. I just don't feel these maps are as relevant as you make them out to be in relation to actual builds.
