Re-discovering the original Discovery.

Sonic Discovery. Anyone remember that name? Of course you do, it's plastered everywhere among Sonic Mania's unused assets. Then the game became the Sonic Mania we all know and love, the dream of all-original levels being crushed with (admittedly good) remade levels from previous genesis Sonic games.

I come bearing a question: What if, instead of remaking entire sonic games, we made one of our own, with that dream returned?

TheManiaac presents Sonic Rediscovry, a full-game edit which aims to create completely original levels in the limitations of Sonic Mania, with the help of the tilesets of a deviantartist named DanielMania123. (I wouldn't  look at their other art, however. Consider it a warning.)

With this mod, I'm hoping to create MULTIPLE mods once it's done, with the same concept, but new levels, until I run out. However, I may need help - I'm not very good at original level design. If you wish to help, contact me in my Discord server with an example of a mod (or maybe even art) you've made. Hopefully we can create an original Sonic game with these limitations.

    Are you going to replace the already original levels with other levels?Or you are you just replacing the remade levels? I love the idea btw!

    I have a question, is that HUD actually unused? It looks a tad bit weird.

    I'm assuming you mean the tile assets and not the actual level itself..

    Edit: i should've taken your warning..
