Fan Scene: Sonic 2 HD Kicks the Bucket

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Sonic 2 HD, the promising HD fan remake of Sonic 2 has been officially cancelled as per a message left by Vincent (the project leader) on the project’s official Facebook. Reasons for this are mainly pinned on ex-lead developer LOst who wouldn’t provide the rest of the team with a DRM free version of the game and is solely responsible for the inclusion of the DirectInput bug which made users believe they’d downloaded a keylogger. He is also the only person holding what would be the source code for the game so production cannot continue without his involvement.


Never-the-less, it’s sad to see the project go as the alpha demo was an impressive piece of work by what is essentially a bunch of bedroom coders. 2 members of the team (scanline99 and Cerulean Nights) have moved on to other independent work in hopes of furthering their game-developing careers and we wish them all the best for the future.

Keylogger in Sonic 2 HD Not Harmful; Lead Programmer Fired From Project

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Members of Sonic Retro have discovered that the keylogger found in Sonic 2 HD’s code is not harmful to anyone who downloaded the game.

Lead programmer LOst has also been fired from the team after “several allegations from team members that LOst held the project hostage through the inclusion of DRM, public feedback of a bloated engine running an otherwise simplistic game, and other behind the scenes issues.”
