Sonic Mania-talang ligger bakom film-Sonics nya utseende
På tal om Sonic Mania så går det inte så bra för dom som gjorde spelet iallafall.
- tried to kickstart a new 2D platform game, Vertebreaker, but it had only raised $14k of the $275k goal when he cancelled it
- $275k was needed, as development was only just starting, not already part way through, as with many other kickstarters
- was broke before Sonic Mania and living in mother-in-law's house
- used the Sonic Mania money (which was paid on a development milestone basis, so didn't get a share of the sales) to pay off his old debts, move out of mother-in-law's house and buy a second-hand car
- it's been 1.5 years since the final Sonic Mania Plus payment
- used some time after Mania Plus working on Darkwing Duck prototype after a Capcom producer expressed some interest, but no response from Capcom since then
- tried Patreon and spent time on Vertebreaker engine
- other members of the Vertebreaker team are also in similar financial straits"
