You know your entire post is kinda bullshit but man you really do not know what "objectively" means. Also You're saying they're going to cease and desist us right after allowing the Mega Drive Classics Hub to exist, letting people put their rom hacks on Steam. And also that they'd do something that'd make the entire Sonic Mania dev team incredibly pissed at them. Also Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3 is an actual fangame that's being heavily advertised by Sega. So that's a thing. Thing is, if Sega really wanted to cease and desist Sonic fangames, they would have done so a very long time ago. If anything there couldn't be worse possible timing than now for Sega to cease and desist us.
