Sonic Next Genesis

By ProjectFM

Sonic Next Genesis a hack of Sonic the Hedgehog inspired by a the 2006 game Sonic the Hedgehog but mostly contains custom content.

Three playable characters which each start with different levels
The ability to have a partner character
A soundtrack full of songs ported from other Genesis games
New art
4 levels and a boss fight
...and much more!

Helpful Notes:
This release is far from what would be an ideal release due to rushing in order to get the hack in on time. Because of this, most levels are mostly empty and are more made to show off the features that have been added. A more complete release will come soon.
When the results music starts playing, pressing A, B, or C will bring you to the next level. So many playthroughs I saw of last year's version consisted of people trying to wait out the screen.
In order to complete the special stage (the one with SSZ art), you need to move downward to a platform at the end of the level.

Current Bugs:
Completing a bonus stage will crash the game in Regen and MD.emu
-However, it works fine in Fusion, Gens, and Exodus
Sometimes multiple monitors will spawn in one spot
Some times, the music for Aquatic Base Act 1 stops
Sonic's jumping noise stops working during the boss in Dusty Desert
Partner characters don't collide with platforms
The game won't start properly when doing a soft reset
Sonic and Shadow don't use their correct palettes when Silver is leading
and countless others.

This is a great promise, but not actuallly a good hack. This game seems very unfinished and bugged, though the level design seems too linear and too platform-based, almost without enemies on places. I'm having hopes to this hack to be better next year.

Because then you could have my Dreams of an Absolution port in it :>

I will say this, at least you have Shadow actually skating (As I never learned how to), Shadow in Return of Shadow doesn't even have that, but like others have said it has promise, but needs quite a bit of work. Also I agree what Targettoad.

This hack has a lot of promise however it still needs a lot of work to make it a truly great hack. That being said i did enjoy what i played its alright

I wish you kept some of the '06/2015 version music at least as an option for the stages.
But you did make silver play like how he should have played in '06 (being able to attack without boxes)

A little disappointed, Sonic's gameplay isn't fast, there is too much platforming gameplay.
Silver's gameplay is good and background are very cool.

The one positive thing I can say about this hack is the backgrounds...
Oh, and playing Shadow and running off from Sonic makes Sonic come after you like Sonic.EXE.

Yea, this wasn't great.

Level design? More like straight lines.
Seriously, there's way too many of them in this hack.
