Sonic Robo Blast 2 has been in development for 11 years. To think that we’d be playing a “version 2.0” makes me feel old, despite me only recently turning 22 years old. A day before the 2009 Sonic Amateur Games Expo opens, Sonic Team Jr., the game’s developers, have released this new version, three years after the last demo.
Version 2.0 has a completable, polished, yet unfinished single player campaign. The team’s leader, AJ Freda, has assured that there are so many improvements to the game that “to list them would be exhausting.” With this release, however, AJ will be leaving the team and turning over control to his other members. He is expecting a child soon, so we in the community wish him well on fatherhood and his future endeavors. It certainly is the end of an era.
