    I predict a prototype of *insert stupid/silly and/or obscure Sonic game here*.

    At the very least, if it's bigger than the previously missing Sonic 2 protos, then it could be a Sonic 3 proto. I'm still keeping my hopes down regarding a Sonic 1 proto, though, but we shall see.

    I'll bet on some kind of early Sonic Adventure prototype

    It's either a Sonic 1 or a Sonic 3 proto with Sonic 2 sprites. Either of these would be fantastic finds but the former would be mind-blowing.

    Nobody talks about it.
    It would be cool to have this prototype.

    Because this is not an actual playable prototype or something.

    @Razor Pretty sure Hidden Palace confirmed that were getting only Mega Drive, Master System / Game Gear and SEGA CD protoypes content.

    And yeah, I'm the same boat for Sonic 3 beta that has Sonic 2 sprites. But would be bigger surprise if it's really a Sonic 1 proto.

    We'll see. Either way, can't wait for that!

    We better stay off Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Blast, Knuckles Chaotix or Sonic Spinball (GG) because they had useless prototypes that no one really cared about.

    Sonic 1 proto.
    Not Tokyo Toy Show, but likely an early-to-CES proto that will showcase some very surprising things (and could have more in common with the Master System version for all we know)

    Other predictions are: Early Sonic 3 proto, something Saturn related, or that weird Amiga Sonic 1 port we never got.

    After one week of a single Sonic prototype, we got a shitty game that no one cared about. I mean that's what the title says. Hope not.

    Pretty sure they're trolling. They won't actually reveal it until the stream starts. It was set to "Grand Dad Mania" last time.

    And goddamn, that's a massive screencap right there.

    That looks ugly for a title screen

    I would NEVER had expected those exclusive tracks on the 1997 PC Collection actually were the original compositions before Michael Jackson joined the game's development.

    It feels so unreal. Ö

    Is it a sin that I don't hate these alternative tracks in this form? I mean, I would never do something as crazy as compare them to what we ended up with, but in a vacuum...they're pretty nice. Ice cap especially has some instrument choices that remind me a little of Ristar.

    I'll have to poke around the game later with IDA & see if I can dig anything up.
