    Hello!

    Karl here, creator of this very game.

    I'm pleased that some people got the fact that it was intended to be more of a joke than anything else. Anyone who has seen my site will attest that I am a complete novice when it comes to programming, and I was therefore not even going to TRY to compete with a proper Sonic hack/remake.

    I didn't really expect this to travel as far as it has done, but I am pleased that it's made a few people chuckle, and god forbid one or two people even enjoyed playing it... ;)

    I can't imagine who WOULD enjoy it... Maybe those annoying 12-year-old Halo kids? =P

    Maybe... you should know, right? :P

    In all honesty, I'm not going to try and defend this game. It was the first time I'd even used animation in a game. I would be interested to know what people liked or hated about it though, so I can avoid making the same mistakes again.

    Sorry about that comment I made about you on the previous page. I didn't really know if it was a joke until now.

    Argh, I feel like such a dumbass.

    Fair do's. I take it you mean the awkwardly-placed enemies and the time-limit on the first few levels?

    No, because I'm 15, I don't play Halo, and I don't scream at people like retards on XBox Live. =P

    Are but I know someone from my school who does that and he's 17 now XP. Slightly off topic: This project obviously wasn't a serious one, otherwise I would be like "Oh dear...", no offense to you karl or anything, but I know it wasn't a proper project, so if you do start on a sonic releate hack/fan game I hope to see some serious work =P.

    Good for you. Those people are the reason I don't own a current-gen console...

    Back on topic, I need a bit more experience before I even think about tackling Sonic again... But next time I will make a better fist of it, that's for sure! :specialed:

    I'm learning Game Maker quite fast, although it certainly has its limitations...

    Don't play online then :v:
    My Wii is offline and it's still a worthy console.

    It was a joke project?
    I don't know if I'm surprised or not :psyduck:

    Any-dang-way, I'm glad the creator wasn't being serious. I haven't played it, because, eh, I'm not really into games involving a lot of drugs and stuff like that (which is why I stay away from GTA and stuff like that)

    If it's anything, it's an anti-drug game. It shows what assholes people can become on drugs.

    I was genuinely inspired by UK: Resistance's <a href="http://www.ukresistance.co.uk/2005/11/blue-sky-in-games-campaign-launched.html" target="_blank">Blue Skies in Games</a> campaign.

    Sonic takes a journey from shitty gangstaland and drugs to a prelapsarian, happy land (his home planet).

    So yeah, it was a joke game, but a lot of truth is said in jest...

    There are people that take <a href="http://info.sonicretro.org/Atomic_Sonic" target="_blank">Atomic Sonic</a> seriously. Just check youtube. Don't worry about some people not getting the joke.

    Hahaha, that was classic! Some really huffy, sniffy people out there...

    My personal favourite - <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=revfez8kZi8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=revfez8kZi8</a>

    How many times can a man say "ugh" in a minute?
