Sonic and Co are alerted to a disturbance on the Floating Island. There, Eggman and his Badnik army are excavating for a lost relic that holds dire consequences. Sonic & Tails leap once again into action in order to thwart Eggman's latest scheme; but unbeknownst to them all, the future is about to change for the worse when one of Mobius' oldest threats is re-awakened. A:DR is an action/adventure standalone PC game built on Unreal Engine 5. The player assumes the role of Sonic the Hedgehog (and friends) to save planet Mobius from his arch-nemesis Dr. Ivo 'Eggman' Robotnik and the nefarious Ashura. Experience Sonic Physics once more; run on walls, loops, corkscrews and on water!

After a long delay in news and several setbacks, the core characters, (Sonic, Tails, Amy, Knuckles) now have a full set of animations which are currently being added to the game. Further work on implementing new features into the codebase and updating the melee system beyond the spin dash attack, stomp and knuckles punch combos is ongoing with the inclusion of Tails gadget weaponry and Amy swinging of the hammer.

More updates to the physics code and revisiting the tech demo has been underway in recent months refocusing on the Beach area, adding new exploratory areas and planning for how each character could interact with the environment along with updating the art style to be more inline with the current official Sonic games and tv shows stylized cartoon visual style.

Project really needs 3d modelers more than anything at the moment. Music is last on the agenda during the current production phase.

I remember hearing about this game when I first got into the Sonic fan game scheme but I thought it was abandoned
It's amazing how long you've been working on this!
I can draw, animate in Blender and make 2d pixel art (sprites), and I can also write if you need help with the story or need dialogue, however, I do not have any knowledge in programming outside of a few very specific coding languages used only in certain engines (Such as game maker and mugen)
My drawing, animating and writing skills aren't perfect (far from it, in my opinion) since I'm still learning, but I would hate to see this project die...
I can help with some level designing and such, and make some concept art, or if you need any animations for some models
This project looks very interesting and I love it's darker take on the Sonic universe.
I'll probably not be able to dedicate my FULL time to this because of school, but I would like to help in any way I can! =)

I can understand your thoughts on it being abandonded due to my lack of posts over the past year. Checked out your work over on deviantart. I've sent you an email.

Could you make it in Unreal Engine 4?

No. There is no real valid reason to make ADR on UE4
