Software developer Simon “Stealth” Thomley from Headcannon – the studio behind it sonic mania—emerged on the state of the remastered Sonic origins Bundle that the team also worked on. In a series of tweets, he said Headcannon was facing “major time constraints” and was being prevented from implementing “major fixes” before its June 23 release. Ultimately, he claimed, the Headcannon team was “very dissatisfied” with it Sonic origins at the moment.
Sonic origins has some solid results from reviewers metacritical and OpenCritic, but currently it has a “mixed” rating on Steam. If you look at the game’s reviews on Valve’s digital distribution platform, you’ll see a multitude of people reading it for absolute smut. Some called the lack of integer scaling is the “most important” disadvantage
Still, it seems whatever problems Sonic origins are widespread and frustrating enough for Thomley to post a multi-tweet thread expressing his grievances about the game’s development. You can hear the exhaustion.
“It’s frustrating,” says Thomley. “I’m not going to lie and say there weren’t problems with what we gave Sega, but with what’s inside origins is also not what we gave. The integration has introduced some wild bugs that conventional logic would lead us to believe are our responsibility – many of them are not.”

Thomley spent the rest of the thread cooking Sega up for how it was essentially mismanaged sound origin‘s development. He said that Headcannon “were outsiders making a separate project” before the studio got busy working on the remastered bundle. Thomley knew This meant the team was “seriously short of time” as they “worked [themselves] to the ground” to release the game in time. However, head cannon stayed the courseresulting in “some mistakes, some oversights, [and] some rush jobs,” as well as some issues the team noticed but “were not allowed to fix towards the end.”
“We asked to make major corrections just prior to submission but were not allowed due to submission and approval rules,” Thomley tweeted. “We asked early and repeatedly about delays but were told it was not possible. We’ve offered to come back for post-release fixes and updates – we don’t yet know if that will happen.”
Thomley noticed this Headcannon wants to address the issues either Sonic origins and sound 3. He even said the studio gave Sega “a lot of feedback during and after development,” but it sounds like the publisher didn’t give them any leeway. Thomley he apologized for how “unprofessional” his tweets might come across when he says he is refuse to remain silent now because there has been “too much investigation into things both related and unrelated [Headcannon].” While proud of the work he and his team have done, he can’t deny that everyone in the studio is “very unhappy” with the state of both games.
