Sonic's Youth: Game Design Document

Screen Shot 2020-02-27 at 3.50.51 PM.png

Game design document for a Sonic game I'd like to make.

It's a GOOGLE DOC that you can read here. It's a work in progress, I will add to it every so often (drawings, writing, maybe some audio stuff). This is not a joke like 'Sonic Dreams Collection'. "People that like Sonic are weird." Fuck you well to do popular award winning 'cool' LA assholes.

It sucks thinking about these snobby "indy elites" making fun of the thing that makes some people happy.

Why is this a train wreck or why is this on this website?
I figure if I try to make something super sincere like this it will accidentally be transcendentally bad.
Like, it's kind of uncool to be a fan of something? I guess it depends on how you look at it?
I guess some questions I will be asking myself while adding to this is, like, how reverent am I to Sonic as a "franchise".
I like Sonic, I liked him as a kid quite a bit.

Someone on the IRC for this website years ago said Sega would never hire me to direct a Sonic game. I guess, in this person's eyes, this game design document and the theoretical game is a trainwreck in terms of futility, like this is never going to happen.

I once was working at a smoothie place and my first or second day there, this guy was telling me about his Simpsons spec-script and how much he was working on it. Him telling me about this made me feel tremendously sad at the time being stuck working for very little money serving very rich people overpriced smoothies. Like, I would hope that this guy made it, I have a more positive look at these things these days. At least he wrote it, he did a bunch of comedy stuff in the city, he was trying and that's what you have to do, you can't just sit around and mope about, he was taking some sort of action even if this action to others felt futile.

So, whatever, I'm going to do this anyways.
I'll run head first into a wall hundreds of times to see if I can run through it.

Sonic must collect the Five Golden Rings to put the CHIST back in CHISTMAS! Can he do it?!

Features Sonic Running Like an Idiot(TM).

Bugfix release: It should no longer be the case that you can get stuck inside a building in level 4.
Also, you can now use the number keys to switch between levels if the level 4 glitch bothered you and you don't want to have to play through the game all over again.

Vector the Crocodile in Pony Adventure

A short, crappy game I coded in an hour. Contains ponies. You'll need an interpreter to play this; google "WindowsFrotz" or "Gargoyle interpreter" for Windows, "Zoom interpreter" for Mac.
