Wallpaper designer Alchemist Defined has just ruined my day. He (she?) created an absolutely stunning mock-up image of what Sonic the Hedgehog 2 could look like in HD and now I can’t focus on anything else. All I see when I look down at this mound of work on my desk are images of a beautifully rendered blue hedgehog running through a gloriously polished parallax scrolling universe. Even though it isn’t real, I want this game ... bad.
Hopefully someone at SEGA checks this out and realizes that this is what fans want to see Sonic look like in HD (not this or this). Seriously, can you imagine? Once I am done playing the sequel to Beyond Good & Evil in my fictional videogame world, this is defintiely next.
While it's obviously not news, I just had to share the beauty of this pic with you guys. Check the gallery below for the larger, desktop-ready version (it looks even better blown up!).
What do you all think? Are you drooling all over your keyboard like I am?
