    SonicFan 254 has been busy creating a Sonic Mania mod for our beloved Dreamcast!
    Check out the gameplay video-


    Here's a link to the beta if anybody's interested in trying it out-

    EDIT- upon further investigation this is in fact not a Dreamcast game, but a PC mod made in the style of the Dreamcast era. I'm unable to edit the thread title, mods please adjust accordingly.

    Yeah sorry about that, I was super excited too until I discovered that it wasn't what I thought it was. :confused:

    So... what makes this Dreamcast-styled? The weird looking sprites? :p

    i don't know how the engine works but the retro engine source code is open source i believe. and it has been ported to dreamcast before. it may be many years but someone eventually might try to fork the engine and attempt adding support for the sonic mania assets and resources

    hell, maybe people will attempt a 'sonic megamix' style mod of sonic cd and 'port' some levels from SM. interesting thought imo
