Default LET'S STREAM SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION - The Subconscious Given Form


Hello ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to Let's Stream Sonic Dreams Collection!

Sonic Dreams Collection was released as a free download in August of 2015 by a group of maverick super-hackers known only as "Arcane Kids". But they didn't make these games, they merely found them.

Quote:
IN 2013 hacker supergroup “Arcane Kid$” acquired a SEGA DREAMCAST developer kit from ebay.com. Deep in the filescape they unearthed a note from the director of MJSTUDIO, a “message in a bottle” detailing the work of SEGA’s top secret studio which was re-invisioning the future of video gaming.

The Arcane Kid$ salvaged FOUR playable prototypes, some concept art, and countless top-secret SEGA files. “SEGA squandered MJSTUDIO’s gift to the world… and dissed Sonic fans globally… by burying these games” Arcane Kid$ spokesperson Jo says.

“It’s time to set them free.” Arcane Kid$ has granted HEDGEHOG EXPOSED exclusive rights to what they call the “Sonic Dreams Collection”
All footage for this LP was recorded live on My Hitbox Channel. In this case, It was also recorded well past midnight after a long day at work and then several additional hours of wrestling refrigerators in and out of apartments and pickup trucks. I would reccomend anyone who wishes to play this game to do so in a similarly sleep-deprived state because oh my god.

Yeah, it's one of those games.

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION 01

MAKE MY SONIC

AKA: ORIGINAL THE CHARACTER, LIKE ANY SPIRIT GUIDE, TAKES MANY FORMS AND WILL ONLY APPEAR TO YOU WHEN YOU ARE TRULY READY

Starring Red Silvers & BEAT

We do some quick introductions, then I spend an inordinate amount of marveling at how changing the size of the game's window tangibly effects the title screen background music. Like if it's tiny it's super fast and if it's big it's super slow and it's so fucking cool you guys omg.

We then dive headfirst into the first of the four games, Make My Sonic from 1996. It allows you to create & pose your very own original character, and it is in this manner I am introduced to Divine the Immortal Hedgehog, who shall guide me through the challenges that await. I take some SEXXXY snapshots of his HOT BOD.

With my OC originally created and not stolen I venture into the second game, 1997's Eggman Origin, but are immediately rebuffed due to our lack of a proper SEGANET connection, as though SEGANET is a thing that somehow actually still exists.

Red Silvers: This is like what the internet was like in 1996. Everybody was making their own Sonic!
BEAT: Everyone is still making their own Sonic! I feel like I'm doing something wrong here. I should be arrested for this.

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION 02

SONIC MOVIE MAKER PART 1

AKA: IT'S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL SOMEONE BLACKS OUT

Starring Red Silvers & BEAT

Refusing to let our rejection from Eggman Origin get us down, Red Silvers and I dive into the third game in the collection, Sonic Movie Maker from 1998. And man, get a load of this intro paragraph. Darker subplots? In a Sonic Game? Now that's just rediculous!

We dive into the first scene and- oh hey It's Divine the Immortal Hedgehog! we capture on camera a moment from his happy childhood, playing catch in the backyard with his dad! Well isn't that just adorable!

And now it's his Junior Prom? Man, they grow up so fast, don't they? Have fun at the dance you crazy kids!

NO NOT THAT KIND OF FUN OH GOD IS TAILS IS STILL BREATHING OH GOD

BEAT: Yes! Yes Sonic yes! God the camera loves you!
Red Silvers: Come on, we need more attitude!

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION 03

SONIC MOVIE MAKER PART 2

AKA: WHAT IS EVEN WHY NO NO NO PLEASE I'M SCARED

Starring Red Silvers & BEAT

I couldn't choose between my ideas for how to do the writeup for this video, so I just did all three! For best results, please read them in a completely random order instead of just going from top to bottom.

VERSION 1.
THE STRAIGHT TELLING

The fourth scene of the film takes place in a strange torture room where Sonic is strapped to a table. Our son, Divine the Immortal Hedgehog is nowhere to be seen. Sonic begs us to feed him, and we sadly oblige, but not before I have to reset the game due to the camera object falling out of bounds.

Scene five takes place in a hospital, where Sonic has been admitted due to an advanced case of the OTHER horrible DeviantArt Fetish, male pregnancy. I do the only logical thing anyone could do in this situation: Break the window with a cabinet and leap off the roof. When that doesn't work, I resign myself to my fate, and help Sonic… er… give birth. To Tails. While Shadow and Amy watch.

Well that should be more than enough body horror for one video! I seriously doubt they'll try to do anything more horrifying than that- OH GOD I WAS WRONG.

VERSION 2.
BROKEN PROSE ON BROKEN BEINGS

We create others through our own lust and gluttony.

We bring them into this world through suffering.

And when we look upon others, we know that from the moment we were formed in the womb, death was within us.

VERSION 3.
THE THOUSAND WORDS.


Of course the reason I couldn't decide on a description is because the things on display here are fucking indescribable. Human language is insufficient to explain this and I think that might be by design. Just watch the video. You'll understand.

BEAT: I don't have words for this one Red Silvers. You have a lot of fucking explaining to do.
Red Silvers: But it all tells a story, like this is what happens after prom!
BEAT: I... Oh my god you're right. Oh my god.

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION BONUS

LIFE IN THE AGE OF FAST

AKA: INDIE FILM: THE MOVIE: THE FILM: THE GAME

In case you didn't know, Sonic Movie Maker really does create a movie file based on what the camcorder (which is NOT your viewscreen) records.

In fact in creates 6 of them!

So I turned them into a pretentious indie film.

Oh yeah I guess I should say that the image I used in spoilerpop 3 is from @SonicSezConfess, which is the secret best twitter account.

I found it amongst the responses when my own submission got tweeted, which was of course, this thing.



And because life is apparently weird and roundabout, that image also serves as a DELIBERATELY OBTUSE TEASER to the NEXT VIDEO, which somehow actually manages to maintain the level of madness (if not outright horror) seen in the last two!

This fucking game, you guys.

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION 04

MY ROOMMATE SONIC

AKA: WITH LOVE, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. ANYTHING. ANYTHING AT ALL.

Starring Red Silvers & BEAT

With the grim task of Sonic movie making firmly behind us, Red and I move onto the last game in the compilation, 1999's My Roommate Sonic. The game was designed to be played with the Sega VR headset, but Sega's cowardice and complacency prevented them from ever releasing the potentially world-changing device, forcing this masterpiece to be hidden away until now.

We find ourselves sitting on the couch, watching TV with our roommate Sonic The Hedgehog. We've been in love with him for a long time now, but have always been too nervous to tell him how we really feel! Fortunately for us, our friend from across the street gives us some great tips on how to get past the awkwardness and take our relationship to the next levoh my god what is happeninG TO ME OH GOD MY HAND MAKE IT STOP OH GOD RESET RESET RE-

We find ourselves sitting on the couch, watching TV with our roommate Sonic The Hedgehog. We've been in love with him for a long time now, but have always been too nervous to tell him how we really feel! Fortunately for us, our friend from across the street gives us some great tips on how to get past the awkwardness and take our relationship to the next level! With his fantastic advice we soon find ourselves looking deep into Sonic's eyes getting closer and clo-

Wait I mean, looking deep into Sonic's… uh… eye?

Quote:
I raised my seared eyes to the fathomless glare, and I saw the black rings hanging in the heavens: and the wet winds from the lakes of Green Hill chilled my face.

And now, far away, over leagues of tossing cloud-waves, I saw the Death Egg dripping with spray; and beyond, the towers of Metropolis rose behind the moon.

Death and the awful abode of lost souls, whither my weakness long ago had sent him, had changed him for every other eye but mine. And now I heard his voice, rising, swelling, thundering through the flaring light, and as I fell, the radiance increasing, increasing, poured over me in waves of fast. Then I sank into the depths, and I heard the King in Blue whispering to my soul: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!"

Robert W. Chambers - In the Court of the Hedgehog
BEAT: Please, please return to normal my mighty perfect hand. My ultrahand. The hand that-
Red Silvers: That realistic VR tho!
BEAT: No look at this thing! ARE YOU SEEING THIS SHIT!?
Red Silvers [laughing madly]: Ohhhoo my god!
BEAT: I AM NOW ENCOMPASSING THE ENTIRE ROOM! I AM EVERYWHERE AND I AM NOWHERE! I AM ALL THAT EVER WAS AND ALL THAT EVER WILL BE! GAZE UPON MY WORKS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR!

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION BONUS

SEGANET SETUP NIGHTMARE

AKA: MAYBE THIS WILL WORK MAYBE THIS WILL WORK MAYBE THIS WILL WORK MAYBE THIS

Starring Red Silvers & BEAT


So it turns out there IS a way to get into Eggman Origins, the game we skipped over wayyy back in the first video! All we need to do is set up the top secret, highly dangerous SEGANET Adapter to get to it.

If you know what you're doing, it's not even a thing!

And if you don't, It's a giant pain in the ass.

Red Silvers: Your default name was "Eggman the Immortal Hedgehog.
BEAT: Yeah well now he's Chibi Van Grift Sayin Preggo Lindsey Fem-Sparkle Prentis David Soul-Sparks Metal Van Sonia Super Soul Fate Golden Angeles Soul Metal Fox Dragon Daylight Fem Shadow Cheekix the Vocaloid Super-Adoptable Scourge.

SONIC DREAMS COLLECTION 05

EGGMAN ORIGIN

AKA: DELAYED ASCENSION

Starring Red Silvers & BEAT

Okay uh... Eggman Origin from 1997.

I only know that I know nothing.

Wait no, I know that the SEGANet window will just randomly start playing some old Spanish (or French?) song when left open but not selected after awhile just to fuck with you. I know that now! I didn't know it earlier. It would have been good to know that earlier, since It just starts playing after awhile and I had no idea where it was coming from or how to stop it.

But other than that, nothing.
Quote:
And of that second kingdom will I sing
Wherein the human spirit doth purge itself,
And to ascend to heaven becometh worthy.

But let dead Poesy here rise again,
O holy Muses, since that I am yours,
And here Calliope somewhat ascend,

My song accompanying with that sound,
Of which the miserable magpies felt
The blow so great, that they despaired of pardon.
Dante Alighieri - Purgatorio, Canto I
BEAT: I wonder if this is what death is like.
Red Silvers: Could be!
BEAT: Like, death as one unworthy.

Wow. I mean... I'm actually impressed by this. It's like a distilled playable version of all the Bewildering and Horrifying Sonic fanart ever created. And it has to have taken ages to put together.
