In celebration of Sonic’s 25 Anniversary, SEGA put together the brightest bunch of ROM hackers to create Sonic Mania – a remake of the original Sonic game, except with a couple extra functions as well as a release on all current-gen platforms. The game has since done incredibly well, selling over 1M copies (which is pretty brilliant as a digital-only title.)
