I appreciate the endorsement, but one thing I can tell you is that implementing Amy is a toughie, ESPECIALLY if they go for her Advance abilities. It's not just programming a character to work the same way as Sonic, it's programming a character with completely new attributes, and then programming near around everything in the level separately to react to it the same way as Sonic. Given the levels weren't tailor made with Amy in mind this would be quite convoluted a process. (I expect anyway, I don't know if Mania has an easier programming layout than the original games' ASM). Personally while I'd have liked Amy too, I can't begrudge Mighty and Ray getting utilised for the first time in about two decades. They need it WAY more than Amy right now. I am also very interested in how the Mania team will depict them, both in gameplay and their lovely animations.
