Sonic 1: South Island Definitive - Teaser Demo

Post by RadiantNexus Team »

Sonic 1: South Island Definitive is a ROM hack project by RadiantNexus which seeks to re-imagine Sonic 1 for original hardware.

Made with creativity and passion, our visions and goal for this fan work consists of:

Complete layout overhauls.
Entirely revamped art.
Remixed music, "Act 2" mixes of the aforementioned remixes, and many original tracks
Revamped zone settings from the original MD Sonic 1, 16-bit visions of zones from the 8-bit MS Sonic 1, and 4 new zones based on concept art.
Re-introduction and re-imaginings of scrapped concept elements.
Quality of Life changes to enhance the player experience.
Minibosses, remixed major bosses.
New in-game cutscenes to convey game's original story, similar to S3's cinematics.
Prerendered models, both modeled and traced for use in the title, menus, and certain sprites.
THE MENU(s)
Many new options
Cool and Wacky Secrets



This is a teaser to showcase our new direction, as well as a look at Marble Zone act 1!

If you play through the game, you'll notice that there's perhaps more coming up in the next couple months....

Hope you enjoy this little teaser, stay tuned, and keep up your eye on this page.

You need a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive emulator, if you don't have a means to play it on an actual MD.

I wasn't actually expecting this to be a ROM hack! I've seen bits and pieces before playing it, but I had no idea it was for Genesis hardware! Really freaking impressive.
