During a routine exercise, Sonic and Co. are alerted to a disturbance on the Floating Island. There, Eggman and his badnik army are excavating for a lost Chaos Emerald of immense power. Sonic & Shadow combine forces once again to thwart Eggman's attempt to imprison the planet, but Eggman escapes with the emerald in tow. Unbeknown to them all, the future is about to change for the worse, once the power of the emerald re-awakens one of Mobius' oldest threats.

A:DR is an action/adventure standalone PC game using Unreal Engine 3. The player assumes the role of Sonic the Hedgehog (and friends) to save planet Mobius from his nemesis Dr. Ivo 'Eggman' Robotnik and the nefarious Ashura. Experience Sonic Physics once more; run on walls, loops, corkscrews and on water!

You can play the old Tech Demo now (UT2004 game is required)

Its been 15 months since I made an update on the game.

ADR had a lot of setbacks due to lack of time working on the project, 2013 was personally a busy year for me. Code issues after updating to recent versions of SonicGDK breaking certain code functions within ADR.

Luckily 40% of the code had to be redone, which was a blessing in its own right as the code in ADR needed some serious clean up work.

So whats done:

* Sonic can NOW Grind on Rails. (Quick Stepping on Rails not yet coded.)
  (Built Grinding system to incorporate Chemical pipe traversal, and Water slides.)

* Companion code functions having to be redone due to compatibility code issues in SonicGDK.
  (Tails can still at least follow Sonic.)

* Air diving now possible.
* Take Control of Tails to carry Sonic.
* New Shield material updates.
* New animations for Sonic and Tails.
* Old animations tweaked.
* Badnik Processing Facility level started.
* Updated Sonic, Tails, and Ashura models.
* Facial rigs added to Sonic, Tails and Ashura.
* Updated Sonic code to incorporate advanced features not found in SonicGDK.
* New monitor type added.
* Updated visual effects - Invincibility, Stomp FX added,
* Re-implemented kick physics when smashing Badniks.
* Advanced Badnik code to spawn customizable amount of destroyed parts, and spawn Furries/Flickies that run away.

Job Role:

Currently looking for a highly detailed 3D modeller/ Texture artist to help out with a few things.

Finally a few Work in progress screenshots.

If you ever wanted to Play Sonic: Xtreme back in the Mid 1990's on the Sega Saturn, or have been intrigued to play the lost game, and didn't get the chance due to its cancellation, Check out fellow Sonic indie developer Tuxmasks one to one developement of the very game here

Umm... Just to give you an idea - why wouldn't you try to post this on kickstarter and HIRE some responcible artists? I see that you're doing alot by yourself...

Well, due to it beeing a indie game based on a character owned by sega, it would mean him earning money on a copyrighted character. The only reason to why this is even still around is because of it beeing free and giving all creds to Sega. To be able to earn money on this, he´d need to get the licens from SEGA and buy the rights to be able to sell it. Which is never going to happen :)

Still alive. I've had a busy year, not had much chance to work on ADR. Recently got a PC upgrade, and been busy with work. I can assure everyone that ADR is still in production.

Considered posting the project on a few Sonic Fan-game sites? Consider some contests and stuff like this too: Youtube.com (Not just for Sonic ROM hacking, but for complete fan-games too, such as this.)

With that, perhaps you could gather some attention/get the project well-known and find some people willing to work with you to form a new development team.

Project is pretty much well known already. Everytime I have looked for certain types of artists to do some work, it never gets done. Only a select few has actually managed to contribute. Others have joined the team in the past and did nothing at all. Hence why I the project ends up in a perpetual state of limbo, and I have had to take on so many roles. At the current stage of the project, I prefer to get a certain amount done before showcasing it again publicly. Past videos didn't generate much of a response either. Just people who wanted to draw characters when levels and 3d skills were a main requirement.
