On Twitter, the game company Nitrome, revealed pictures and a video of a Sonic Game Demo that SEGA rejected.

The ideas they came up with were later used in their own game, Super Leap Day.

The idea was to have a brand new short Level (Act) every day exploring many old and new themes.

Weird. Seems like a pretty serivcable idea for a mobile game. Almost like a side evolution to Sonic Jump.

I can't even really rationalize why SEGA would reject it.

They’re too busy doing collaborations and partnerships that’ll really get the peoples attention and praise. like an Elon Musk car that can play Sonic 1, and Steve aoki Sonic concerts

Good point. Guessing the mobile game scene really has become more about profit margins than putting out interesting new products. It's a shame seeing how interesting Sonic started on it.

And it's classic styled too, so it would have had an extra kind of appeal. Shame.

Curious to what led Sega to decline myself. I’m betting this mobile game would’ve costed a fraction of what they spent on other promotions depending on how much the studio could foot it.

It is charming!!...
Maybe SEGA will change its mind if many fans reclaim it?!...
It seems that's what Nitrome wishes by giving even more information...
They really want to create a one-button SONIC mobile game!!...

When you played, you could win a Chaos Emerald a day and, at the end of the week, if you had collected the seven C.E., you could have played as Super Sonic!!...

I wonder if it was Sonic when he was younger or Classic Sonic...

Nitrome told even more about the game a few days ago :

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">There would have been characters you could unlock outside of Sonic each with special abilities (as we did in <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SuperLeapDay?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#SuperLeapDay</a> ). We would have raided the games for who to include but obviously would start with the classics Tails and Knuckles. <a href="https://t.co/2736sazCGl">pic.twitter.com/2736sazCGl</a></p>&mdash; Nitrome Ltd (@Nitrome) <a href="https://twitter.com/Nitrome/status/1475550591757783042?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">December 27, 2021</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

 

Do you know if there is a fan campaign asking SEGA to change their mind about their refusal of Nitrome's game?!...
