Unless you’re familiar with the sonic fan game community you might not have heard of spark the electric jester. It’s a independent game currently in development by Lakefeperd and others also. He`s the person responsible for what may be the best Sonic game in years, Sonic: After the sequel. I’ve included a video embed of the soundtrack for that game. However i highly suggest you enjoy it as intended. The game can be downloaded for free here.

Spark features a lovingly crafted 16-bit art style paying homage to games of the Mega Drive era, The small development team lends the game an extremely cohesive look and feel. But lets get real. That soundtrack. That’s simply on another level. Those melody’s are furiously addictive , I’m going to be humming the trailers theme for weeks to come.

I’ve replayed this game countless times and it can stand toe to toe with the best in the series.

Spark is his own breakout original game (Similar to Freedom planets roots in the Sonic fan game community) and he needs a little funding to get it finalized. Now if you’ve listened to the above youtube video you’ll be wondering “Wow! that soundtrack is shit-hot. how can i get more of that in my life” well good news, the spark kickstarter is asking for a very modest sum to get the soundtrack made and to help it get on steam greenlight since the bulk of the games development is finished. No kickscammer tactics here. This is a really smart move i feel. It’s much easier to trust a kickstarter pitch when it’s halfway done and it’s something the big boys in the industry could learn a thing or two from. I’m looking at you Shenmue!  although despite showing off a lone environment they hit over 5 million so good on them.

If you navigate onto the kickstarter page you can find many more details and even a playable demo of the game if you aren’t yet convinced. I highly recommend everyone to give it a look over, especially if your a Sonic fan like me and starved of awesome 2D platforming in recent years. The Sonic fan game community is one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic groups on the internet and Lakefeperd being one of the more prolific members certainly deserves a penny or two. I need this game in my life. Hence why I’m writing a post convincing you all to jump on the hype train. Choo Choo!
