S3&K HD would certainly be nice.
Ya honestly I'd rather see the team tackle that to make up for what we might not get. But Sonic 2 is still good too.
I'm a sucker for expressive and exaggerated animations. Looks fantastic. Hopefully the badnik plays along with a quick glance and a sneer or two before detonation. :specialed:
I hope it has a sudden look of regret before it explodes...
What about hand drawn art style is 2008? It's a legitimate art form. That's like saying all future animated movies should be CGI because it's 2015. Frankly, I think the cartoonish aspect sets it apart from the rest, and also more true to the original, or at least how my 5 year old brain interpreted it.
And no, I wasn't being serious about calling it Sonic 4. But Sonic 5 does have a certain... je ne sais quoi.
The new animations look pretty nice, but I just hope that they don't start abusing smears even for small movements. It feels a bit unnecessary for Sonic's arm when he looks at his watch, for example.
EDIT: Something odd os going on with the Grabber's frame between his open and close states... Also a smear?
As much as I like Sonic 3 (& Knuckles), I think Sonic 2 benefits a bit more from this sort of remake. The special stages benefit from increased visibility ahead of you, the seamless transitions are a nice addition, and who knows what else they might do with it (maybe Hidden Palace Zone?)... S3&K, on the other hand, does so many things right in the original release that an HD treatment would have less to improve upon beyond the visuals.
Would I love to see S3&K HD? I sure as hell would. But I think Sonic 2 HD is the more interesting upgrade.
It sounds nice, but fanmade main series sequels just leave a bad taste in my mouth. It forces me to get hype for something that will not satisfy said hype. And it also seems like it's in poor taste.
Just like the official Sonic 4. :v:
Honestly, a fan game doesn't have to be called Sonic 4 to be Sonic 4 to me. I think games like Sonic XG or Sonic Time Twisted are good candidates for that already. As for Sonic 2 HD verses a Sonic 3&K HD, I have to agree that there would be less to improve upon in a Sonic 3&K HD than a Sonic 2 HD. Sonic 2 is also simpler to work with while still being interesting enough to experiment with.
I suppose that makes sense. I'd just love a beefed up version of any of the classic Sonic games honestly. While the Taxman/Stealth remakes are great don't get me wrong, I'd love the same thing but in this game's style.
Speaking of the remakes though, will you guys be using the remake layouts for Sonic 2 or the originals? Particularly for Hidden Palace (in that case if you did use the remake layout would you also use the remake boss/the remake Hidden Palace entrance via the spike pit of doom)
probably also a sore point with a certain someone in this thread
Christ, this is beautiful. The animations are gloriously detailed, the art is polished, everything looks so visually stunning just for a simple fanmade game. Sonic Robo Blast 2 may have created it's own universe for around it's 15 year life span, but this is complete gold basing it's assets off of a classic. After playing the old demo, I have a lot of faith in this project revival. Hell, you guys could even help me remake my old game if I still had the dedication and money and sketchbook to finish it.

''It's Changelog time again! As some of you may have guessed, the infamous asset we're reviewing today is the Hill Top Zone Tree, but we had a more special name for it on the team due to the sheer amount of time so many of us put into it. Check it out:''
For me I prefer the overall look of the tree next to the branches info.
Make sure to click the link, guys. The final tree is animated, but that doesn't show in the forum post.
Anyway I think it should be recolored purple to match Oil Ocean Zone.
I know this is not a feedback thread, but wobbling makes it look even more like jelly.
Now that you have mentioned it I have to agree.
Since we can't criticize the work, I guess all I can say is that I appreciate all the work you guys put into it. A lot of heart and effort went into that tree.
And apparently if you click on it you can see the animation playing at different speeds. Or at least, it worked like that when I opened the page in Chrome.
The new tree looks great ! Keep up the good work,
however in my own personal opinion I feel that the Alpha tree keeps the original feeling better than the new tree.
Darken the gradient shading for the alpha tree towards its edges and remove, or soften the hard edged lines on the branches and it'd be the perfect HD upgrade rather than replacing the tree with a totally new tree.
But yeah that's just my opinion which shouldn't count for anything. hahaha
Assuming that animation is supposed to be during an earthquake, it's not too bad. If it's just supposed to be swaying in the wind, then it needs some work.
