    Stop playing with my soul like that. It's about as bad as Chimpo got me to imagine that the Donkey Kong Country interview was actually about Sonic 4.

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    Cool video. Makes me really want to see S3&K re-made in this style, although obviously the music, character model, monitor model, and HUD would need some work. =P

    That looks like they used something like an enhanced version of the DOOM engine to pull that off. Great idea.

    I am completely speechless. This only makes me wish Sonic stayed in 2D even more.

    EDIT:
    >it's just a prerendered animation

At first I thought it was a real game engine but with such amount of effects I doubt all that can be done in real time without a monster computer. My guess is that the scene has been animated on tops of recorded footage, thus the level of detail when it comes to movement, and even to camera position! If the author agrees, I'd love to test out this on the EggEngine to see how well it plays :D (even though it still lacks some of the objects needed to reach some of the places :().<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    This to me is the most interesting post in this whole thread. Do it Dami!

    This is truly Sonic & Knuckles 3D as you imagined it.

    Now if Sonic 4 had taken this direction rather than making it something else...

    I seriously hope this guy finishes making the level!

    Has anyone tried contacting him yet? Perhaps we could persuade him to join us?

    *edit* on second thoughts - looking through his website - he doesn't really look like he's much in to Sonic; what a shame.

    I imagined the blades of grass in Mushroom Hill Zone being square.

    This left a big smile on my face and I'm at a loss of words. Impressive work all around. If only this were a real game, it would be awesome.

    Bottom line is: why can't sonic 4 look like this *RUNS*

    Anyways, everything's full of life and very well detailed, with some pretty neat effects like the light shine from the background. Amazing version of my favorite S3K zone. Taco man approves :)

    The lighting effects as Sonic flew over that gap just blew my mind.
     
  13. That's just amazing, even just as a proof of concept kind of thing, that looks like how the games should have evolved, those lighting effects between the tree's as Sonic flies over, the physics looking as close to the original, the art style and many particle effects, the whole thing just looks, well, awesome. I'd pay full retail for the whole game in that style, twice infact!

    Some random RPG project.
    This is amazing, it's a shame it's only a prerendered video as opposed to an actual fangame in progress. Hopefully the creator will upload another video of Mushroom Hill or perhaps create another level from the series.
     
  15. As a proof of concept, this is a mind-blowing extravaganza of awesome. It's a pity, though, that it isn't such a thing. Still, I hope it inspires some of the very creative people out there to at least try to make a game like this.

    Shit, we've seen lighting this good in downloadable XBLA games already (Shadow Complex! Trials HD!), so we know it can be done. Let's all have hope! :)

    AAUK wants you all to stop telling him about it: <a href="http://blogs.sega.com/sonic/2010/08/25/that-mushroom-hill-video/" target="_blank">http://blogs.sega.com/sonic/2010/08/25/tha...oom-hill-video/</a>
    RubyEclipse hasn't made a blog post about it yet though...

    hey wiki you're so fine
    Cool stuff. Though a shame it's just a mockup.

    I'd like to see a Sonic game in the style, though I suspect the reason it hasn't been done so far is that you don't get quite as nice results messing with Sonic 1 and 2. Nobody really knows what Green Hill Zone's grass is supposed to look like from a top-down view, and it's a bit uncharacteristic of Sega these days to move straight on to the third or fourth Sonic game.

    So, you want Sega to make this game? Well, tell them! You can <a href="http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&sl=ja&u=http://sega.jp/opinion/&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://sega.jp/contact/soft/%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:*:IE-SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7GPEA_en&rurl=translate.google.com&usg=ALkJrhg6gRQcNyHOXKOfxFYMTj1MH3Un-g" target="_blank"> send Sega Japan a message</a> telling them that you want to see classic Sonic games remastered like in the video. Make sure to include a link to the video, and above all, be very polite and formal. You may even want to encourage this project as a potential 25th anniversary release. I think Sega Japan only accepts messages in Japanese, so it's a good idea to use <a href="http://babelfish.yahoo.com/" target="_blank">Babelfish</a> to translate your message into Japanese. I know it seems unlikely that they'll listen, but if we all pull together and deluge them with thousands of requests, they'll have to at least give it some thought. Let's do it to it, and show them the true power of teamwork!

    Funny they don't have one of these in English. They really should. But I wonder how much English feedback would be considered compared to the Japanese input... But yeah definitely send them that video in droves along with copies of the SPG. Tell them they need to do whatever it takes to get Yasuhara back and that delaying games is a practice they should continue doing.

    Well, Babelfish translation because there is perfect.
