Sonic 2 HD General

  1. Awesome, looking forward to this. What I really hoped that would happen is that SEGA would pick this up and help them finish.

    So chemical plant, hill top and emerald hill? I'd love an easter egg where every hill top tree designed was in the level, that would be too good.

    One would hope the new programmer entirely junked LOst's engine and started from scratch.
     
  5. It seems to be the case. Even the fade-outs are different. It seems to be lower quality, though. Lost's engine was really well built.

    What fade-outs?

    Don't think any engine fades are shown, fade-outs in that video are video editing.

    The fade outs are done in video editing not the engine.
    And the quality is due to youtube's compression, unless you mean something else.

    To be fair, hedgehogs are known for having about (high number) spines. So Sonic is either nearly bald, or his "spines" are made up of a ton of tiny spines that clump together to look like 7-8 big spines that can change based on post, which would explain the inconsistent spine number, or as I call it, "Schrodinger's Hedgehog and also something about a cat too I guess".

    I think I may have gotten carried away with my semi-sarcastic joke reply to a semi-sarcastic joke criticism.

    That cpz bg is so beautiful. Also that Tails animation is the cutest thing ever.

    Looking quite good and a new demo release is awesome news. September 30 is not far away. Quite an amazing year for Sonic, what with two official games releasing and also this.

    Looking forward to trying the demo. Three zones playable confirmed?

    Yup. 3 zones. 15 days. There is still a lot we need to get done before the 30th.


    I'd love to work on a mania 2!

    I can't wait to see the Hill Top trees in motion. Months of debate finally realised. :v:

    The aesthetic IMO still looks a bit too gaudy / "Flash"-esque (reminds me of that Monster Boy game coming soon) but otherwise it still looks really good. The backgrounds and added animation frames to everything in particular looks really fantastic.

    Seconding this. I like and have made my peace with Mania's Saturn-era approach, but I still want to see a new classic Sonic game with modern visuals. These guys would definitely be good candidates for the job.

    Staying sane.
    It lives again!......again.......again.

    What would be pretty cool to do when everything is finished would be to recreate either the S2 Mania levels or the Generations Act 1 of CPZ.

    I also concur that there needs to be a *HACK DETECTION* Easter egg. Perhaps by entering the Knuckles level select maybe.

    Every time I think this thing is dead, it comes back with something cool enough to make me hype. The overhauled background for CPZ is easily the best out of anything I've seen so far.

    Either that or somehow get this project picked up by Sega officially. We need hand-drawn HD versions of all the classic games, after all. :specialed:

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeugh no, Mania's spritework is amazing and honestly this project doesn't even look that good compared to it--especially when you take Studiopolis, Press Garden, and Mirage Saloon into account.

    Bitching and complaining about my country -.-'
    Will the soundtrack Tee made for the original project be used? Or is it entirely new?

    I can't help thinking that the trailer feels a bit derivative from the Mania trailers (old footage with blip blop music, reimagined stuff, by the fans for the fans, etc.). Still cool though!
