Game Jolt released the last episode of the Sonic the Hedgehog fangame Sonic Omens. It looked edgy, but it was a very good fan game. It was fun to play, except for the plane segments. The game was put in a new light by publishing online information about Ouroboros Studio, the developer behind Sonic Omens.

The story was posted as a Google Doc to a Twitter account @SonicOmens. Since then, it has been reused to share stories about Ouroboros Studio’s Sonic Omensproject. Farkle, a user, calling themselves Farkle, created the Google Doc. It details allegations against the Ouroboros Team, including harassment of people with negative feedback, pays walling Sonic Omens previews behind Patreon and Boosty, and stealing music from Cars 2. Maria, a 12-year-old girl, is also hidden in a detailed texture.

Sonic Omens was subject to controversy for placing beta behind a Patreon payment wall. The Sonic fan community has criticized this. Sega could also be more concerned about how the IP is used. However, the company has traditionally been quite chilled.

This is especially true when compared to companies. Farkle claims that Ouroboros Studio concealed Sonic Omenscontent behind a paywall and promoted it alongside other original games when asking for donations, despite past criticisms. Although the team placed ads on Game Jolt for the game, it was not available for sale, and the advertising was more or less an attempt to circumvent Sega’s rules regarding using IP for profit.

The document also details several instances of online harassment between the team members and people who gave negative feedback on the game via Twitter and Discord.

It shows how a song from a game is a rearrangement from a video game and claims that it contains a texture in Sonic Omensfiles for Maria Robotnik (a 12-year-old human infant) and includes underwear with the text “Bad Girl.” Farkle claims that the texture isn’t visible in the game, and they believe the person who added it to the final game did so “for fun.”
