To all folks saying "recolor alert"
I am actually the director of the whole project. See, we KNOW what the character designs are like, but we're the kind of people who believe that characters shouldn't be condemned just because they look like Sonic/Shadow, personality and abilities are also very important factors in our book.
Dash is a half Sonic, half Shadow type, but his strengths only go as far as above average speed (nowhere near Sonic) and ice-wielding, as suggested by the trailer itself.
Crash is his best buddy, a plasma sword wielder who has an unfortunate tendency to talk first, think later, and his mouth usually gets him in trouble or makes him look stupid, I laughed when I typed that by the way lol. Oh and for the record, he'll get a redesign later on, it's part of the story. xD
Ashley is the love interest for Dash, but she has an intense crush on Shadow, which drives Dash crazy and gets him into trouble when he starts acting jealous.
And finally Houdini, who is my FC, is a Sugar Glider who trained almost all his life in martial arts. No actual powers beyond natural abilities a Sugar Glider would have (climbing, gliding, etc.)
So you see folks, we're not your typical recolor users, we have awesome sprites coming, awesome VAs waiting to recieve scripts, and artwork from my good buddy RaianOnzika of deviantART, which you saw in the trailer here.
Give us a chance gang, I guarentee you'll love it. ^^
