    Team Conquest (some people from there is working on this hack) and Technical Team (Sonic 2 Extension) have been collaborated to work on this hack with ultimate power!
    Here is some W.I.P. screenshots that shows Cyber City, Hidden Palace, and new Winter zone based on concept arts!

    Ok, pals
    This game does contains secret zones
    First two is Rock World (winter) and Genocide city. They are blocked, and you can access them with par codes using
    Third it's REAL HIDDEN PALACE
    You'll go there after collecting all 7 emeralds. After zone - you'll get super form

    Well

    Tails got a lot of criticism during all this time, so I want to ask:
    Which Tails should be used? Early brown Tails, Early Tails, but adapted to orange colours, or the final release version of Tails?


    Triple post btw, lmao

    I think we should use the early brown tails, but maybe make his brown a bit lighter.

    Well... it was interesting experience

    We did not pursue the goal of getting any prize, but rather to declare ourselves to the world (funny enough that on shc server I was banned after this words), and there were pretty a lot of reviews. It was different, from "OMG best thing in my life" to "authors are morrons, hack is crap, fans of it are crap eaters". Pretty lolz.

    Also our composer left project recently. We had some creative differences with him, so, he is no longer with us. Also, it means that vacancy is currently open, so, if you'll want.. you know.

    Also it was a 31 year of S2 last week. Happy bday, I guess.

    Also we are reimagening some zones, I hope we'll have something to show you later in December, when it will be one year for project.
    (CNZ currently is in prototype source code, so hud and Tails is different)

    Not sure if it's possible or not, but a cool feature to have would be the option to switch between the beta S2 sprites and the S1 sprites, as they were shown in some mockups. I don't doubt it's possible technically, but it may be outside the scope of the project.

    This project definitely could use some work, but I think it's actually a really cool idea. I like the concept of an alternative Sonic 2 which draws and expands upon concepts that were present during the game's original development process. Nice work so far, I hope to see more of this in the future.
