FictionSphere could hit Switch through Kickstarter stretch goal

A platformer beat'em-up

FictionSphere is a technical platformer inspired by classics games from the early 90s. You'll find familiar mechanics from beat-em-ups, gallery shooters, and most noticeably platformers. You'll take on the protagonist Ratio, a wise-cracking hot-blooded youth with a persona that hides his resentment of the world. Wielding an infinite potential, learn new feats and beat your enemies to a pulp!

FictionSphere is looking to raise $20k to bring the game to PC, but there's also a Switch stretch goal. It's really not far off the original goal, as it sits at $24,500. If you want to pledge some cash for the project, you can do so here.

Sonic originally had a Spider-Sense-like ability where he would sneeze prior to incoming danger

Sonic tingle

What in the HELL is this all about?! I have never, ever heard about this, but apparently it's the real deal. At one point in Sonic's history, the blue blur apparently had an ability that would make him sneeze to alert him to danger. Similar to Spider-Man's Spider-Sense, but much weirder.

There's all sorts of history to this sneeze ability as well. It's even part of the Sonic CD intro animation, albeit a very quick portion. There's official Sonic comics and promo materials that mention the sneeze, and even a cut sneezing sprite animation from Sonic CD itself. Man, you think you know everything about a character, and then something like this is unearthed!

The Witcher showrunner explains just what content the show is adapting

Witch books?

The people involved with The Witcher on Netflix have made it very clear that they're not adapting the game series, but instead, the books themselves. Wondering which books are involved with the first season's journey? Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich explained in an interview with ComicBook.com.

"Well, The Last Wish was the first book I read. You know how with anything it is the first time that you experience the world, you fall in love with it in a totally different way. I love all of the books, but that was really my entrance into the world. So yeah, I drew a lot from it, mostly because I really think that, and forgive me if I said this in the panel, the panel is huge blur that I'm not absolutely sure about. It really is world building in The Last Wish that I found to be the most important thing.

When I first started talking to Netflix about the show, and I think everyone assumed that we would start with The Saga, because that's sort of the most serialized storytelling, and would lend itself to imaging. I said, "But you can't do that without setting up the world first." That was really, I guess that was a big challenge too, where to get, you know?"
