The dream of decent 3D Sonic game have finally have come true, and it’s all thanks to a couple of very dedicated fans, nope we dont mean the new Sonic Mania (coming next year), me mean this non-Sonic team, fan made game Sonic Utopia.
Ever since Super Mario 64 made the jump to 3D look so effortless fans have been imagining a similar milestone for Sonic, but none of the 3D games have been
Sonic Utopia has been created by The Great Lange, with help from fellow fan Murasaki with additional programming from Tpot. Most impressive of all is that it actually seems to make Sonic work in 3D properly, with a style of game-play that none of the official games have ever really got close to.
Sonic Utopia is an experiment that not only tries to expand on Sonic gameplay in an intuitive way in 3D, but also aims to capture the best of Sonic’s style and tie it together in a cohesive experience. Nearly everything in this demo, from art to sound to the gameplay engine, was made from scratch.
I created all of the models, animation, and most of the textures and sound, as well as the music. The 3D Sonic engine and the gameplay driving this vision was created by my programmer fellow Murasaki. We’ve been working together on this for a while and we’re glad to finally share it, with a debut at SAGE 2016. The game is still in a very raw state, but you can try it for yourself. – The Great Lange
Now we have a message for Sega “PLEASE EMBRACE THIS GAME AND MAKE IT OFFICIAL” and “DO NOT CEASE AND DESIST IT!”
