Fans and even developers have been vocal about their dissatisfaction with the product. Simon ‘Stealth’ Thomley, who founded Headcannon (a co-developer who worked on the project) wrote up a thread on Twitter about his thoughts on the collection: “This is frustrating. I won’t lie and say that there weren’t issues in what we gave to Sega, but what is in Origins is also not what we turned in.”
Thomley continued to state that “every one of us is very unhappy about the state of Origins and even the Sonic 3 component.”
Modder Xanman, who has been working on fixes for the PC version of the game, went as far as to describe Sonic Origins as being “absolute shit.” Xanman said that in regards to the modding process, “We’ve fixed enough where the game is a bit more serviceable but really, especially without scripts, there’s not a whole lot we can “fix” without just redoing sprites lmao.” Xanman ended by stating “screw this game.”
Additionally, Sega went ahead and removed digital versions for Sonic The Hedgehog 1 and 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD (all of the games included in the collection) prior to its launch.
In other news, an open beta for Multiversus is coming later this month.
