I just suddenly realised this looking at the title screen comparison shots.
For those of you not aware, Sonic Jam was a compliation of the original Mega Drive classics released for the Saturn with a ton of extras.
I was looking at the Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 titles when it hit me: why was he running in a desert in the intro for no reason? Because it's a cheap old-school FMV and those never make sense?
Or was it a reference to this?
The original Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 title screens have Sonic's name made of metal, and that metal is reflecting this desert.
This may also explain why Sonic 2 doesn't use the official product logo on the title screen either.
I think you might be reading more into this than intended. The reflection in the logo looks more like waves on a beach to me than a desert. Fits the seaside theme of the first levels in the games.
Pretty sure it's just a chrome gradient slightly distorted by the shape of the letters, like this.
Quite fascinating to imagine the possibilities. Although it's probably nothing, realize that it takes quite an eye to spot a similarity such as this. O_O
Wow, it's been years since I've seen the Sonic Jam intro video. Good spot on the similarity, though I don't think that's the reason why he's in the desert.
