New small random video. Harmless fun.
Looking lovely as always. Can't wait to get a chance to play this (whenever that is, take your time of course).
Random clip I had put on Twitter!
I saw this on Twitter, as well as other Sonic engines that were showcased performing similar feats, and it's fascinating how flexible (and durable!) your collisions are! (Tiny loops at high-speeds throw my noggin for a loop.) It's also validating that you're not alone in creating in-game, on-the-fly collision masks for Sonic that can be almost any shape imaginable.
Things like this make me wonder. Nowadays, a point has been reached with fan games where physics "accuracy" is so well-documented, and not as intimidating to replicate from-scratch anymore as a result. The focus for newer Sonic frameworks seems to have shifted from "How close can we get to the original?", to "How can we do it in an entirely new technical manner?", and I love what that answer has developed into with Sonic Studio.
It's given me a higher bar to reach for with a future project, after my current one. My first earnest attempt at Sonic collisions is built like an antique, it's certainly not capable of any of this. Your project has made me seriously re-evaluate how I will attempt collisions in 2D games with editors moving forward, as I see more videos of Sonic Studio in action.
Still looking forward to the day that Sonic Studio is ready for its big debut! Video demonstrations like this are great at keeping up the excitement/conversation around the game.
I definitely agree!
Some new screenshots of Marble:
Marble with organic slopes for once is gonna be hella nice. Can't wait to see what people make with this tileset!
Green Hill Zone (Night) by Jahn Davis!
Everything this project produces is just gold.
I avoid commenting on this post every time I see an update for fear of sounding like a broken record, because basically I would always be repeating how impressed I am with the polish of this project and how incredible everything looks.
So... Yeah, literally what I just said in the previous paragraph.
Massively appreciate the work you're doing brother, look forward to seeing more!
Edit: My son will love this if he ever gets his hands on it heheh
