    Fuuuuck man, this art is pretty beautiful! That reminds me the final weapon from Megaman X4. Great job, Varion!

    These levels both look awesome and I'm really looking forward to seeing this thing when it fully blossoms (read: when it's fully completed and released).

    Also, Mecha Sanic is best Sanic. :v

    Reading the letters 2006 on the title screen made me realize...

    8 years.

    8 YEARS.

    8 FUCKING YEARS AND YOU'RE STILL WORKING ON IT. I can't wait to see all this hard work come through when it gets a release, because it's such an epic hack! :yahoo:

    Megamix has been going for nearly 10--9 and some change at this point. :p It's not unprecedented! Good work takes time, yo.

    Speaking of, that level looks pretty fucking boss. Right on, dude.

    Seriously dude awesome work, I admire your work and your dedication to such a project. 8 years and still going strong, not to mention everything that you've shown is simply epic and Mecha Sonic is still way better than Metal Sonic. :p That artwork is beautiful, the title screen is so dark I love it and Radon Factory looks epic!

    But aside from the jokes, I thought radon factory was awesome looking enough, but this just takes the cake of how beautifully Gorgeous and epic this looks. I also notice that he has a different form. im guessing this is him being to, if not already close to his last form? either way I like it. reminds me of his design from sonic hereos. anyway, so looking foward to seeing more of this.

    This is deemed 'Imperfect Form' a Nerfed version of him looking how he did in the media demo is in RFZ but that's all I can see for right now. can't spoil the story :p and Yes the design is leaning towards heroes. It'll be more apparent when he completes his data copying.. :p

    Perfect Metal? or maybe Metal Overlord is back?! that would be amazing. Seriouly though I didn't even need to know that it was 8 years man. I know you've been working on it for a long time and I've been keeping an eye on your content as much as I could over the years and those 8 years show how much you put into it. I'm gonna say it, I feel that this is gonna feel like a new game entirely, a Sonic 4 thats actually more like a Sonic 4?! I can dig it. I'll be keeping an eye on this topic for sure. Good luck man, and I await with anticipation.

    Edit: I don't why but looking at the title it reminds of the wily fortress map from the Mega man games(and I haven't even played Mega man), where you would start at the bottom part of the map, and then reach the top of that Mecha Sonic head would be like the final level or second from last if you got the emeralds.

    For a moment I thought that was a 3D looking loop.  Shame it ain't :(

    oh shit oh shit oh shit i wasn't prepared for this someone help me oh my god aaahhh

    Based on the few test builds you've given me I can tell without even needing to wait for a full release that this is going to be epic. Whether it's going to be worth the wait has to be decided yet, though.

    A lot of things have changed from those test builds. I'm doing a lot of work to push the game that extra step towards making it the best it can be. More updates will be soon I'm  in process of moving but it's not going to stop me from working on the game :)


    Edit: RHS Explain how you thought it was a 3D loop? I've been tossing around idea's in terms of design.

    Okay, maybe "3D loop" was the wrong term.  It more looks like he's in a half-pipe.  But you know where I'm coming from.
