|Fast Facts on Sonic 2 Revamped|
Sonic 2 Revamped was a heavy modification of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 created by Irixion. This mod first started out as a layout hack, a test of skill, and what Irixion could do. At the time, it didn't have a name, but after seeking for someone who could help, Tweaker suggested the name Sonic 2: Revamped, and it stuck ever since. It eventually grew into a few close friends helping out, and the project grew into realizing Irixion's vision of the perfect game. After major setbacks and a core crippling incident, the hack was ultimately scrapped.
Due to growing tensions between Hitaxas and Irixion, the team started falling appart and as a result the project suffered. Code was being copied into the hack that had unknown origins, once this was found out by the public, Irixion had decided that everything needed to go, and the project was scrapped. S2R had one final release, and was then canned due to alleged code stealing by Hitaxas.
While the hack's releases were in two different working states and essentially game engines, plans to reuse content that Irixion himself created in a future project, have been made.
