Mj2 has sent us a press release earlier today, telling all and spilling much about his Sonic-go-commando-style Fan Game, Chaos Control.
At SAGE 5 just a few months ago, you may well have remembered a ‘playable introduction’ to the game – well, Mj2 has revealed a NEW Chapter, which takes place some two years later. According to Mj2, the game now has a completely new engine with a new plotline, along with a set of new characters and Zones to go with it. A Fan Game with no Eggman or Chaos Emeralds! Shocking! 😉 But, we don’t think it would have worked anyway – the game is now much more military based, and the intervention of the classic stuff may have ruined it. Here is the list of characters that Mj2 showed us:
The main character in Chaos Control.
- Good speed
- Good strength
- Good jumping
- Can fight with and without weapons
- Cannot drive any vehicles
- Cannot get extra Armor
- Not a good swimmer
Part of the same Military group as Raiden.
- Can drive any Vehicle
- Can use extra armor
- Can open any lock
- Can use any weapons
- Poor max speed
- Not a great jumper
- Cannot fight hand to hand
Knuckles is back and stronger than ever!
- Very powerful
- Can use any weapons
- Can drive some vehicles
- Great hand to hand fighter
- Great swimmer
- Not a high jumper
- Has not got a great max speed
- Does not work great in a team
The sole survivor from a a doomed Military team.
- Very fast runner
- Great jumper
- Good hand to hand fighter
- Can use all weapons
- Can use “Chaos Time”
- Can use extra Armor
- Cannot Swim
- Seems to be hiding something
These are the full list of characters, but we have been told that the player can only select Maria and Raiden from the start of the game – the others must be unlocked somehow.
Before Mj2 is prepared to release an engine test (to us, hopefully ^_^), he’s busy tweaking the new static based engine he cobbled together at this time. But, on the gameplay front, to put it from Mj2 himself: “the gameplay is a mix of Sonic, Metal Slug and Metal Gear Solid.” Need we say any more? Check out the latest screens below. The Sonic Fan Games Club will be updated with this little addition very soon, as soon as we get some playable gaming done on it 😉

This level is as close as you will get to Green Hill Zone in this game!
Watch out! You can slide on the ice!
