The art style is pixel art with less "blocky" structure, meaning th textures are independent from the grid. The layout of Alpha -1.01 is more of an unfinished cyberspace. This kinda sets the tone down for a while, until the Battle System is finished. There are no enemies in this build yet, leaving a simple collect-a-thon for you to do.
Puzzle solving is one of the main mechanics of this game. It won't be a simple RPG-style puzzle. I've added a few styles from other games that may fit with it. Expect a very different kind of Sonic fangame that doesn't follow the norms of its timeline. To put it simply, this is a fangame of the Sonic Storybook series.
