Project AXSX is a Sonic X-treme re-creation project started in 2006.
What is Sonic X-treme ? Sonic X-treme was a cancelled platform video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Early versions were considered for several systems until ending up as being developed by Sega for the Sega Saturn, with the intended release being around Christmas of 1996.
We are not re-making X-treme as a carbon copy of what once was, but of how it could have possibly been like if it were finished.

Some Goals of Project AXSX:
1: Re-capture the essence of Sonic X-treme by re-creating and or re-building original levels and gameplay scenarios along with its original 1996 beta soundtrack.
2: Be creative by adding additional gameplay elements to the original halfway finished levels.
3: Build all new levels from scratch with fun gameplay concepts that players can enjoy.
4: keep the visuals retro with a hint of modern technology tossed in for good measure.
5: A whole new story with elements loosely based on the original concept stories complete with retro pre renderd CGI.

Why am I working on this project?
At the checkout line buying my Sega Saturn, along with Myst, Panzer Dragoon 2, and Robotica, I saw Gameplayers Magazine with a huge Sonic on the cover. Being the huge Sonic fan-teen that I was, I just had to pick it up and take a peek!
What I saw inside floored me ! All the lovely Crisp 3D renders shown along with the gameplay screens, and reading about gameplay details captured my heart . I must have read that article over and over everyday until the next magazine issue was released. I'd daydream about what the game would be like with all the fancy new 3d exploration Sonic could do. (What kinds of secret area possibilities existed ect ect.)
On a few occasions I'd pick up the phone and call 1800-USA-SEGA to check for a release date. One guy that I spoke with actually got to play the game , he said that it blew Mario 64 out of the water. ( way to go hyping me up even more) It wasn't till after X-mas that I found out the game had been officially canceled. My Heart was broken!
So yeah, I thought the game was something that could have seriously kicked some ass ! Although seeing some the level layouts now , I know that I would have been severely disappointed if it were released like that.
Anyways...With some creative ideas, I hope to make a fun game for all of you Sonic fans out there.
