    Default Sonic 2 HD Returns From Its Grave

    Remember Sonic 2 HD, which unceremoniously died following its alpha release because of nonsense regarding former project programmer L0st? The quick excitement and then sorrow of the projectís release and cancellation reverberated across the Internet and it looked like the dream had finally died.
    Not so fast. In the waning hours of Sonicís 23rd Birthday (and we do hope you keep your Sonic memories coming in), the Sonic 2 HD Facebook group sprung back to life and announced the project was back on. Turns out that a newcomer, who remains anonymous, stepped up with an engine to fill the hole L0stís firing caused, and the engine received approval by project head Vincent.

    While the team is a short a few members from its original development (citing real life obligations), it looks like the project will continue development. If any of you are feeling creative and have the skills to assist the group, it may not be a bad time to contact the team and show them your stuff.

    That's good news I guess though I've personally lost interest in a Sonic 2 remake.

    The irony was that the person who became lost, was called L0st.

    Irony.

    Well there was going to be, but it was cancelled only a mere 3 days ago. I have the demo of it and I can say the the Sonic 2 HD engine felt identical to the original 16-bit version. Sonic 3 HD's engine could have used more work.

    I once played a Sonic 3 HD that was hilariously bad in most ways.

    If this anonymous newcomer is Taxman... well, we're up for something beautiful. If not... well, then we just have to wait and see.

    Has SEGA given their 2p on this yet? I'm super excited for it, it looks very faithful to the original, but it's got Cease & Desist written all over it.

    If the inevitable happens, Christian Whitehead's Android port is the best I've seen, SEGA should really get a PC/console port of that done

    I find it comedy gold that I get a take down notice from Sega for my rom of the sonic mania intro and by contrast people can make things like this without a flutter of an eyelid

    Aren't members of the sonic mania team involved in this project? I vaguely remember reading it or are they ex members of this project?

    Sometimes I wonder if people actually want to get a C&D.

    In the last few years I've noticed a lot of fan projects that people have absolutely no right to make. People also seem to be really surprised when they get the C&D notice from the legal team too.

    Here's my prediction: Sonic 2 HD will gain a decent amount of popularity, the lawyers will move in, then some idiot fans will be screaming things like "OMG, Sega are assholes, they should just allow a fan game".

    Still, the game does look good, clearly a lot of work has gone into it.

    Or maybe Sonic 2 HD team want Sega's attention to strike a deal. Isn't that how Taxman got his foot in the door?
