Should Tails have a game
Despite being classified as a Sonic fan I’m really a Tails fan. And I have watched the hero of my early days go from a but kicking sidekick and adventurer in his own right to the equivalent of a cheerleader over a very long drawn decline of his skills and relevance. Despite this, however, there appears to be wide support for the young fox among the general fan base. So can’t we have a game for Tails?
First thing to consider is that Tails did have a game. In fact he had two. But he had them in the mid 90’s when he was most popular. He may still be well liked but a solo game now would seem odd and people would wonder where’s Sonic. So instead I’ll focus on what may be the heart of the issue.
Sonic steals the spotlight. Obviously Sonic is the titular hero of his games, but after the Adventure games our character options became limited to just one. And that’s not good because we love our other heroes. For Adventure fans there was time to play as Tails, K

The Continue Zone - Sonic Game Purpose and Story
Purpose
The goal of this close-knit series of games is to take the Sonic titles as they originally were and transform his classic existence to a modern gaming format. That doesn’t mean bright colors and no story, and it doesn’t mean following the path that Sonic games have since the new millennium. I mean to take the 90’s games, the Adventure games, inspiration from SatAm Sonic, and some new content, and build Mobius from the ground up. This means a 3-Dimensional world that is very open and large while closely following a set storyline. And it means physics that allow you to really play with movement in your environment. It also means there will be three main heroes, not just one.
Episodes
The game would be quite large, following a series of 6 episodic stories in the ongoing fight against Dr. Robotnik. Each story involves collecting chaos stones and preventing a cataclysm from happening.

Sonic Game- how to make it awesome 3
Story
Dr. Kintobor was experimenting with a time stone in search of a way to undo the effects of the chaos emerald that unleashed his dark side in the form of Robotnik. Instead, it created an amalgamation of youth. What was made was a fox boy whose presence can bring change, possibly in a good way. Not knowing what was created by the stone, Kintobor sends his friend Sonic to investigate and bring it back. The story continues mainly from Tails perspective as he follows Sonic on adventures and in the fight against various enemies including Robotnik.
Characters
Sonic, Tails, and Amy Rose are playable at the start of the game. They follow the 3 basic categories of gameplay style that will in many cases determine your path through the zones- Hypersonic, Vertigo, and Chaotic. This is not strict because you can choose between the two optional Special moves for your character at the beginning of the game.
Sonic: He’s always in the Hypersonic gameplay category. Sonic has a move called Vor

Story
Nicky enters the updated Mobius online game and discovers that the computer character Tails, who he once rescued, is still alive. Tails was made by the original developer Kintobor who feared that one of the games villains was too smart and could eventually break his limitations and take over the digital world destroying all players. Nicky (now Sonic) explores Mobius and tries to reach the heart of the Robotropolis Empire. He will meet old friends like Knuckles and Sally (who he secretly knows in real life but don’t know him here). Knuckles became Guardian by completing ancient quests. Sally was crowned princess when she met the ill king Maximus in the Void. Sticks the Badger is a self-proclaimed Oracle who is wrong half the time but knows about Tails. Tails is the only data character that is fully self-aware and acts as a player. Amy is Sonic's girlfriend from real life. She has less experience but earns a powerful weapon from Little Planet as her piko-piko hammer. Over tim

Sonic Games Need Variety
The title might seem counterintuitive base on how much Sonic has changed, but no matter how much he changes, that’s the only option for some time. It would be a lot of fun if Sega could put out more Sonic games with different objectives.
Open Adventure: The best part of the Adventure era was that it felt like you were exploring a world. It was a while ago so they were limited in how large the world could be, but imagine if it were massive with different zones connected by ancient and new highways and back roads and you could follow “threads of the story” from place to place. This would be a fun way to follow smaller plots, rather than everything being an apocalypse with Eggman as the villain. Actually travelling through the world could reveal other possible conflicts of that world. This sort of game might not feel as constantly fast paced but there’s plenty of room to play with physics in every possible scenario. Plus, with this setup you don’t have to be

Sonic Characters - Do they really need Clothes?
*This rant contains the subject of cartoon nudity - reader discretion is advised.
I recently submitted a discussion post about Sonic OC Tips, or how to make a good Sonic character without making it too complicated or conforming to strict rules. One point that I made was that they don't need clothing except for style; they already have fur. Now, for male characters people seem to accept this without question (because: Sonic) but it's with the female ones that we're all stigmatic on the subject. The question is: why?
Obviously there has to be a reason for this. If it's just assumed that male characters are properly covered up because they have fur, or that they have nothing to hide because they're cartoon characters so "why feel uncomfortable?"; than why are we treating the girls so differently? I place the blame mostly on art style.
Art Style
If you rewatch the SatAm Sonic the Hedgehog TV show you might notice something. You'll notice that Sally Acorn doesn't look sexualized at all. Obv

Sonic Original Characters - How to make good ones
Since I have spent the past few years working on my Sonic art style and creating original characters to see what techniques seem to work and what ones don’t, I would like to share what I’ve lerned. I will list off key details that I found help me to draw my characters and afterwards I’m going to discuss the issue in general.
Spike or Swoop?
Look at a picture of classic Amy Rose. Now look at Tails. They both have hair on their foreheads. Both are drawn in the same style in the same era… but there is a difference in how it’s drawn. Tails has thin spiky hair while Amy has thick wavy bangs. This will help add variety and, more importantly, personality. Is your character gently or rugged; male or female; does their hair just stick up or does it swoop across? There can also be curls or a messier mop-head look. Even short hair can droop hair and long hair can spike. It doesn’t have to be a strict rule just use what looks good and suits the character. This d

Why I'm a Tails fan and how I wish he was playable
It’s fairly obvious that I’m a classic Sonic fan but Tails has always been my favorite. People seem to like him because he’s the cute one, but that’s not really it for me (I think they’re all close on the cute spectrum). Thing is, when I was a kid in the 90’s I didn’t like Sonic’s attitude, but Tails seemed to have a more reserved nature that showed in his appearance. But he could still kick robot-butt and move super-fast, and his design was cool with pointed ears and nose and two tails. Plus there is something sorta’ mythical about seeing a fox fly through the air. I thought too that the darker red-orange worked great with the overall design. Keep in mind that this was a time when Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog or any of the other media wasn’t on TV and Sonic Adventure hadn’t come out yet, so my view was based only on the games themselves. Over time I found out more about Sonic’s universe and the different inter

Oh hi! I’ve packed my computer away because I’m moving but was just checking on my phone. I don’t check deviantart with my phone often because it takes data. Anyways, that’s why I have been less active. It could be another week or so before I get back to my old routein because I’ll need to unpack and settle in.
