    I probably should get back to work on my site someday...
    This is quite simply looking to be a masterpiece!! Like others were saying, if the 32X were a successful platform, this would fit perfectly on it. Imagine how beautiful a 2-D Sonic game on a next-gen system would be. I know Sega would never do it (well there's Rush but I'm talking at least PSP power), unless they release a new game on the X-Box Arcade. Anywho...sorry to change the topic. I'll be looking forward to seeing your continued work on this game and am hoping to one day try out a demo of it.

    Holy hell.
    I am not worthy.

    Seriously, that's absolutely excellent. Do you guys have a site or something? I want to play this.

    Looking at the screenshots again, I seriously can't wait for this. This shit simply looks too good and I hope it plays just as good. Shit, I would kill to see some video.

    Yeah, I used some genesis palletes in Photoshop to see how they would look and they look fine, although considering my PC is a piece of shit and Photoshop loves to lag the rest of my computer during the saving process I didn't bother to save any images, which is why I just added the edit, though we are derailing his thread if we keep wondering if his awesome art fits in a SEGA Genesis.

    Which is totally awesome by the way.

    Like everyone said, this looks gorgeous. I especially love Palm Paradiso zone.

    What will you do about the musics? Make new ones or re-use some from the games?

    And how far is this game completed?

    that too is something I am intersted in. One thing I loves about mah old sonic games was the music. Hopefully it isn't an after thought for this either.

    SPILL THE GOODS MAN!

    Some music is slight remixes of some lesser used sonic tunes as well as music from all sorts of other games.

    And like I said, the graphics are for SXG, please don't take over the thread for making this about working them into using genesis colours.

    I don't understand the infatuation with making this into a genesis game. Wouldn't this run better standalone? And besides, that would ruin what is essentially a very beautiful piece of art.

    And Zonik, I know you said "this year", but do you have some sort of guess as to when it would be released, and is there any possibility of a PSP port?

    That's simply the best retro Sonic fangame I have ever seen, hands down.

    The graphics are very refreshing but still faithful to the classic Sonic style.

    You're really gonna spread joy once you can release a finished bugfree version of this masterpiece.



    I bow to your awesomeness. :worship:
     
  11. Hey, I remember this from its first topic! Put simply, and as everyone else has been saying, it looks glorious. I see so much beauty.

    I have to say, I'm looking forward more to this than I am a lot of "official" games that are coming to market right now...

    I don't think MMF games can be ported to PSP. I don't think they even run on macs. If they did I would have ported a lot of unreleased games of mine on PSP a looong time ago =P

    Nope, I don't think this could be ported to PSP. Apart from MMF being windows-only, it has the capability of run slow even on high end computers ;)

    42% level splice or otherwise, this is some of the most impressive Sonic art I've ever seen. Awe-inspiring piece of work you've got there; I only hope the gameplay follows suit.

    I must say I am very impressed with what you've got done so far. The art is simply beautiful. I hope you have some awesome music to go along with the awesome look it has so far.

    That's what I had always thought but I was never exactly sure on what MMF was to begin with, so I thought I would check.

    But hey, whatever works.

    Well, you have to consider what the focus of this board is, it's natural it would come up. Anyway, nobody's trying to make it into a Genesis game (I think), but some of us were curious how it would look if it happened [probably because some of us wish we could make a hack look this good], so now we have a better idea of how it would look.

    So, Zonic Spike... will you be releasing a demo of this at some point? What's done already and what still needs the most work?
     
  18. Wow...how long did something like this take?

    And does it happen to use Game Maker? My comp doesn't like to play GM games...tells me some crap that it can't load some graphic sets. But that's what you get when you have only 4 MB of VRAM...(No, that wasn't a typo. It is truly 4 [FOUR].)

    Reading topics works wonders. It's been said many times that this was made using MMF2.

    Anyway, excellent work so far. I just hope that the gameplay and music are up to the same standard as the graphics. It'll be a shame if they aren't, but I'm confident this will be up there with the best fangames.

    I'm really excited about this. I've always resented Sonic Team for not making a Sonic & Knuckles sequel, so it's good to see someone with obvious talent (judging by the artwork) developing one.
