This is the Launch Trailer to coincide with the launch of the Point of view build of sonic X-treme. (Totally different engine from the STI Engine)

Okay Guys ! So yeah, We have here the never before seen engine build of Sonic Xtreme by Point of View. (videos or pictures have never been released publicly until now.) Little is known about this build of Sonic Xtreme outside of a FAQ put togeather By Chris Senn which mentions POV a few times. The Faq can be found here:

From what I gather, sometime in the middle of Sonic X-treme's development, Sega outsourced the completion of Sonic X-treme to Point of View studios, without the knowledge of technical lead Ofer Alon or artist Chris Senn, who were working on the PC and Saturn engine and levels. Point of View used assets from the original effort and developed a level converter to convert Sega Technical Institute's engine levels into the binary format used by POV's own engine, which had already been used before for several other games on a variety of platforms, such as Saturn, Playstation, Nintendo 64, PC.

Fast forward to 2015 Jollyroger acquired the POV file assets from Tichua. In its Initial state the POV build did not run on Standard Saturn hardware, It could however ran on development Saturn hardware. so Jolly had to massage the engine code so that it could run on the Saturn hardware.

To obtain a copy and learn more Please Viset the sonic Retro forums here: Also please drop a comment on the forums if you can to thank Jolly Himself for all the hard work he's done.
