    I DONE MAKED GAMES.
    I'd be totally down with this, but Pulseman is the villain. Call me old-fashioned and curmudgeonly, but crossing universes like that seems to cheapen the whole package.

    Usually when people open threads like this there is a ROM to download to try it out. Even if it's just 1 zone.

    high quality video game rips
    I lol'd particularly hard at that bit.

    Anyway this is probably the most interesting Sonic 3 hack I've seen. Kudos.

    It's good to finally see a Sonic 3K hack with a huge set of original art. :)

    I agree about the pulseman thing though

    I am laughing so hard right now.

    Okay, I'm looking forward to this. Why would Pulseman be evil though? Did Eggman reprogram him?

    Those are some beautiful screenshots and I totally can't wait to play this. Also I seem to be the only one who is okay with the crossover, it's something that hasn't been done before that I know of so kudos to you. Also be patient guys, I'm sure Utopia has a reason as to why the ROM isn't released yet. Good things come to those who wait, remember that.

    I for one have no problem waiting on this... it's just really good to know that, slowly... more people are getting into Sonic 3.

    If I were you, I'd do this... make it the all out Sonic 3 experience. Release half of the game first, with only Sonic and Tails playable.
    Come Hacking Contest, release the other half of the hack, and being able to play as Knuckles.

    When Metallic Madness met Sky Sanctuary. A look at the new art style for this level.

    Always wanted to try this out.

    I love that new HUD much better than the one you previously used, and I'm digging the new artwork for Sky Sanctuary. I love the Metallic Madness look, well done. :)

    Looks awesome. I'm excited for this because I have seen few S3&K hacks before now. My only suggestion is for Radon Ravine, maybe consider lightening up the pallete, or put a few more colors in, to break up all the blue/black. Either way, this looks awesome. Can't wait to see more. I don't really have a problem with crossovers either way. We already have them with games like the Super Smash Bros series, Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, etc.

    Wow, a Sonic 3 and Knuckles hack :P Haven't seen much of those here, and one that has custom arts too!

    I like the old hud better though.

    Yeah you were right on that one so have redone the pallette to break up the monotonous pallette. :)/>

    Nothing, really.
    Huh, this was a pleasant surprise.

    Not only do I think you caught a genuine Genesis feeling, but you actually made a Sonic 3 and knuckles hack that isn't a level redesign with a slightly different palette.

    I wish you luck in this endeavor.

    Oh wow, a custom level which looks good, in Sonic 3 of all things? Now I'm impressed.

    And yes, sorry for the late comment, you know I kinda left Sonic Retro years ago and now I'm slowly catching up again.

    That Launch Base Zone and Sky Sanctuary art is looking great so far. It's really refreshing to see more art hacks for Sonic 3. :thumbsup:/>
