This is going down in history. Wow. I'm having trouble writing this I'm so excited
So they changed the GHZ flowers to green just so that one of the two Newtron types wouldn't be pink? Even though they could just have had both variants use the blue palette?
that, and most sunflowers have a yellow/green center?
So what about the partial sonic proto with the night green hill that was talked about earlier today? What's that about? Where can I find it?
I don't think they were even meant to be sunflowers prior to the palette change
Apparently Buckaroo is selling the prototype on ebay in February. I'm sure it will fetch quite a pretty penny.
Also, the next issue of Retro Gamer will tell the story of the cart and the release.
What about the proto that contained the dark green hill that was talked about earlier? Is that downloadable
It is the same prototype. drx and co restored some data to show that off on the stream. I haven't seen any info on how to restore that data to the rom, but it honestly wasn't that interesting anyway.
So is there anywhere where I can download this restored data? Don't mean to spam, but Green Hill at night and the Warp seem interesting

Great Great work. My goodness. Sorry I can't contribute anything here but yes, my God, it's finally been found. A Sonic 1 prototype. What a good way to end this dumpster fire of a year.
EDIT: OK, here's what I found most interesting:
- No checkpoints... at all. Yikes
- Marble Zone was already level 2, why did Labyrinth stay in the 2nd slot in the level select in the final at all. Last minute change my ass
- Splats was there before caterkiller but Splats didn't make the cut. RIP Splats
- The game looked a lot harder
- I wish they kept the end of act jumping. Like they have the bonus points and the ring in the final, so you run off to the right becauseeee.....
Wow, it is the build that actually has the Shinobi drums. Oh God.
OMG!! I cannot believe this has finally been unearthed!! All of you guys pretty much summed up my thoughts. THE TRUE HOLY GRAIL!!
God bless @drx for going through so much to get this.. that article on Hidden Palace really made me take a breath and think about all of the hard work that was put in to get this.. I mean “WOW”
I’m so happy to see this during my lifetime and I’m hoping, just maybe, another Sonic 1 proto will be revealed??
God bless this community!!
I already commented in the other thread, but I guess I'll say it here too.
Today is my birthday.
2020 has been a rough year.
This is one of the best birthday surprises and endings to 2020 I could ask for. I've been following sonic beta content on these forums since 1998.
There's still a chance for the TTS build... one day...
Aside from that build, about the only bigger discovery left could be the original art assets for Dust Hill Zone, or Sonic CD's R2.
There aren't many other surprises left to uncover after this.
isn't wasn't Dust Hill Mystic Cave the whole time?
Despite that, I would like to see those Sand Shower assets too.
and maybe if any were ever made for Ocean Wind, Rock World, Blue Lake, Tropical Summer, and Tropical Plant
I'm all about playing the Sonic Mania build with the earlier version of Press Garden Zone.
