(Before we begin, I know that I have an article and a blog about this already. But when I first started out, I had it posted on a forum. I feel more comfortable posting about it where I feel it belongs. It also makes it far easier for me to post updates.)
Splice The Hedgehog is the name of the fangame starring the titular fancharacter: "Splice The Hedgehog". The game is currently in production. Both users 'Smash The Echidna' and Kapus are working on it at the same time. Many other people have contributed to the project, which made this game possible. The game's engine is the RPGMaker 2003, which runs very similar to the older Final Fantasy games. The game also features a synthesis system, a character interactive party switcher, Jumping and Ring collecting, many familiar zones, skit scenes identical to that of the Tales Of series, and even Special Stages to collect the 7 Chaos Emeralds as a side quest.
Splice is an orphan living alone in an old house. He has been living in Greenflower City for as long as he can remember.
One morning, Splice wakes up a few moments too early to the sound of his phone ringing. Upon answering it he recieves an ominous message. "Agent Nero! Abort Mission, return to base immediately!" Splice was left confused and unsettled. After looking up the phone number, he traces the call back to a shady orphanage. While investigating, the city is attacked by the notorious Dr. Robotnik. As usual, Sonic comes to the rescue and chases him away. Splice decides to join him to fight Robotnik, as he is plotting to conquer the world with another brilliant scheme, and even rebuilt his long lost creation: The Egg Carrier. All the while, Splice tries to take whatever chances he can get to investigate his own situation further, and eventually finds out that his long lost father is somehow connected to it, making the mystery even deeper and even more dangerous than he anticipated.
