    Let's just say this isn't just a hack... Let the speculation and hype begin.

    It's a complete new game, either made by using another game's engine or from scratch. Either way, this is gonna rock hard. =)

    On retro he said this isn't ONLY a hack...


    It might be a new engine he is working on, like the fangames got the sonic worlds engine. This one is a test engine amirite?

    It's a brand new engine for the Megadrive/Genesis created from scratch by Malevolence and myself, it's taken us a year of research in understanding most aspects of the Megadrive's hardware and how to navigate it, but we've pretty much got there eventually.


    What you see above is a test game, it's there to put our engine to the test before we do something awesome with it.


    Any questions?


    Also for the record, you guys are terrible at guessing games =P

    What do you mean by brand new engine? does it work similar to the sonic disassembly? or not?

    I guess it works something like a disasm since it wouldn't make sense to convert all art and so on to ASM and include it there. That engine looks to have potential! May I ask what kinds of features the engine has?

    He said he was using a new engine so i was assuming it would be different.

    Anyways, what capabilities does the engine have? Like in terms of graphics management, sound system and so on.

    Yeah I'm guessing it was made today. And this engine will eventually become a Genesis SDK. We're trying to make a way to create fan games on the Megadrive that will actually work on the hardware. Currently the engine is pretty blank, meaning it can be set up for any kind of game (such as one like Space Invaders). Soon we shall start work on making a custom sonic engine that will revolutionize sonic fan games for the Megadrive.

    If you're trying to make it into a Genesis SDK, I'll provide the IDE for it. I'm working on Sonic Hacking Studio anyways, so I can just rename it to Megadrive Hacking Studio :p
