    Cool. :) Thanks for sharing your impressions and observations. The scanline filter sounds awesome. Super retro.

    Dude if you're hitting the Winter barcade then I want to come too! Would love to meet the creative genius behind Up. :)

    This is amazing to hear. I'm so glad the feedback is overall glowing with praise. Can't wait to see more and play the final game!

    So everyone who attended the 25th anniversary party received that USB with some of the music tracks, has anyone shared a 320 mp3 of Studiopolis? Tried Googling but all the results looked dodgy. :v:

    I don't think they were 320. From what I remember they were VBR. I could be wrong about that, though.

    It's likely that the soundtrack well get an official release. It better, considering even Sonic 4's soundtrack got a release.

    Of course Sonic 4's going to get an album when it has stuff like this. Oh, but that song has too many memes, so it's only allowed to suck. Fun.

    It deserves an official soundtrack release. Studiopolis alone is one of the best Sonic tracks I've ever heard. I'm not even exaggerating it's that fantastic. Tee Lopes is just a Sonic music God and his inclusion on the team makes me excited for the full soundtrack. It's bound to be fantastic across the board with Tee Lopes at the helm.

    I'd buy a physical release of the soundtrack just as I'd buy a physical release of the game.

    Whoa! A older demo?! Where on earth did that person find that?! So Taxman was making Dust Hill zone past first, almost 15 years ago. Amazing.

    The Egg Garden Zone demo remains one of the best Sonic fangames ever released. I remember playing it via Sfghq back in the day and the praise for it was just glowing. Everyone loved it. That demo along with the colourful and beautiful zone and perfect physics engine cemented Taxman as one of the best fangame creators ever. I'd say Stealth with Project Mettrix and his engineering tech work is probably on par. The two of them are the best fangame creators and engineers in existence. It's wonderful that Sega are letting them produce their own game.

    Much deserved IMO. The guys are legends and I can't wait to see more of their work with Sonic Mania.

    I would love to see side missions for each character in this game similar to Sonic Adventure or Generations but they don't have to be mandatory. They can just be there to add replay value. I'd love to run through stages in a limited amount of time with Sonic, or even collect pieces of the Master Emerald for Knuckles. I always wished S3&K had side missions although it more than held its own without them. If this game has them, it will be be the greatest Sonic game of all-time in my book.

    I'd rather not have side missions and just have good branching paths for Tails and Knuckles so the game is worth playing with them.

    So if the game has side missions, it can't have branching paths for Tails and Knuckles? I'm confused why couldn't the game just have both.

    Alternate routes for Tails and Knuckles are a must Sonic 3 and Knuckles style. Going by Taxman and Stealth's previous work I'd say it's highly likely they'll be included.

    Exactly! We know we are getting alternate paths in Mania because we even got them in Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 remasters. Side missions would only add more replay value to the game. Why not have a lot of content on this game so it is the best Sonic game ever?

    Sup, SoS attendee here =P

    Mania plays beautifully - I was right at home straight away. Drop dash is a neat addition, the game is gorgeous to look at, and it really does feel like what Sonic would have been in a Sonic 4 on Saturn.

    We're in safe hands on this one, kids - though I suspect we already knew that. =P

    There was an engine test that preceded that one too, Egg Garden with no rings or enemies IIRC.
