    The hilltop tree there is somewhat correct... well, half of it is ;)

    As for the CPZ image there, no. That was merely one person's showing off of skills.

    No. We're not doing this shit again. Stop it right now. It'll just be trashed all the time.

    I personally want to thank the Staff right now. All that needs to be said.

    Personally, I was expecting, "Oh, HD lava, nice.", but this blows my expectations out of the water, or, lava. :v: That's a gorgeous use of color, and it makes me glad the team is doing more than simply redrawing the original assets. This remake will look like it leaped straight out of the game manual.

  6. The amount of work that goes into just one animation. I am really loving this. Hope to see more soon!

    This looks gorgeous. Now imagine 10 pages of nitpicking if this was still a community project.
    "Sonic is speeding in an 8-shaped-legs running pose but it's how he ran in Sonic CD and not in Sonic 2! Also Sonic 2 didn't have a win pose at all so how come there's one in Sonic 2 HD?"

    Yes and the act transitions that are stolen from Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and the widescreen 2D pioneered by 4 Ep 1, and the 3D realtime special stages from Sonic 3D Saturn, and the Antialiasing from Sonic Adventure DX, and All Stars Racing's support for Mac OS etc

    Loving that animation, especially with the final pose that's based off the Sonic 2 logo.

    Absolutely beautiful. I'm really glad this project didn't stay dead.

    I wonder if we'll ever see Sonic 3 & Knuckles get this kind of love.

    Really hope this stays alive. All you guys who've worked on it are brilliant!
    I remember when it was first announced and I used to spend hours looking at the art and sprites and listening to the music!
     
  12. Just posted on S2HD Facebook, looks great.

    I love how there's a specific animation for that now, it certainly is a really nice attention to detail!
     
  14. Stunning. Absolutely stunning.

    Looks magnificent, I hope to see more of these fluid animations in later updates.

    I don't know why SEGA doesn't just hire you guys...

    I'm getting ahead of myself, but when this is complete you guys should make new level assets, get Tee Lopes making some new tracks and continue with some original content. You could call it Sonic The Hedgehog 4!

    No fan-made 'main series' sequels, please. Traditionally those things don't end up well and, heck, after such a wobbly and fucking irritating start Sonic 2 HD is looking to be amazing. Art direction tending more toward animated/cartoon styles? My 2008 self would be VERY happy at this. ;)

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    Considering there's a Sonic 4 already, that seems like a recipe for disaster. I'm all for them making their own HD fangame after Sonic 2 HD is done though.

    I kinda hope they do a HD remake of Sonic 3 after this considering the remaster might be a no go.
