Notch's Sonic photo

Before Minecraft, Notch made a crappy Sonic fan game

A great way to waste time is to Google any odd topic that happens to pop into your head and play a game of link tag until you strike pay dirt. My latest excursion led me to Sonic Racer 4K, a Java-based Sonic fan game. But what really caught...
