Sonic Adventure Minecraft

Sonic Adventure Minecraft is a project I've dedicated myself to for the past 3 years now.
The goal of the project is to bring the entire world of Sonic Adventure into Minecraft and give it new life as a huge Open World sim, rather than just an action game. The city of Station Square is going to be absolutely huge, rivalling the likes of Grand Theft Auto in scale while still paying homage to the Sonic Universe in which it's set.

Every single action stage from Sonic Adventure will be faithfully recreated and presented in the world of Minecraft as you remember it but with new areas to explore to add to the experience.
The crown jewel of it all though will be with the city of Station Square itself. Miraculous detail has gone into building the city from just a simple hub world into a unique, living breathing city. There are hundreds of places to explore from water parks, casinos, department stores, shopping malls, apartment buildings, subways, train stations, Chao gardens and much more.

In the current build of the game you can explore a huge chunk of the city, all of Speed Highway, parts of Twinkle Park, Casinopolis and the Mystic Ruins as well as 4 huge shopping malls, department stores, hotels, train stations and many other interiors.
The finished build of the project will feature the entire game of Sonic Adventure fully recreated in an open world, merged in with the entire city of Station Square that was featured in the Sonic X TV series as well as many unique locations of my own design.

The entire map in the final build will be populated with thousands of unique NPCS as well as many other Sonic characters that will cameo throughout the game and can even tag along with you on your adventure.
It will be years however before this all comes to fruition so until then I'll keep updating with progress and will release updated builds here at least once a year.

You can download Beta V4 of the project from here:…
You will need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the map properly unless you're willing to update and run the included files yourself. Everything you'll need will be provided for with the download file however.

You can see plenty of videos of the project in action on my youtube channel here:…

Shenmue Minecraft

Shenmue Minecraft, like Sonic Adventure Minecraft above, is going to be a huge open world sim set within the world of Shenmue. The entire world of Shenmue 1, 2 and 3 will be faithfully recreated in the project as you remember it but the world itself will also be heavily expanded to offer new areas to explore.

Yokosuka is going to be a huge open world city with many unique places to explore. The newly built train station in Amihama will act as a hub to let you explore other locations around Asia that weren't originally even featured in Shenmue including Tokyo, Shanghai, Guiyang, Maceu and Quebec to name a few.

There will be tons of content to explore in the final build of the project and thousands of unique NPC's you can interact and converse with as well. All of your favorite characters from the series will feature in the game as well as fun easter egg cameos from other well known Sega franchises hidden throughout the map.

You can download Beta V3 of the project from here:…
You will need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the map properly though everything you'll need will be provided for within the download file.

Sonic Craft Adventure

Sonic Craft Adventure is a new fan project i'm working on within Minecraft.
The project is going to be this huge action platformer paying tribute to the original Sonic the Hedgehog games from the early 90's while still being completely original in it's own design.
There are going to be 10 unique worlds you can explore within the game, each with their own unique branching pathways and routes making each playthrough completely unique.

The entire game within itself is going to be a tribute celebrating Sonic's entire history. Many memorable characters, enemies and locations will also feature and cameo within the game as you progress with a much bigger reward given to those who manage to complete the game and defeat Dr. Eggman.

The project is still in early stages of development so watch this space until then.

Other Projects

Minecraft World

Minecraft World is another open world simulation project I'm building on the side.
It's in too early of it's stages to really show it off but the goal of the project is to bring real towns and cities to life within Minecraft, fully populated with thousands of unique pedestrians and traffic to really bring the locations to life.

My focus right now is on my other already established projects above but the towns and cities I'm planning to include with this project so far are Cheltenham, Exminster, Birmingham, Gloucester, Exeter, Exmouth, Paignton, Goodrington, Torquay, Bristol, London, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Stroud, Brixham, Sidmouth, and Seoul (South Korea).
I may include more locations in the future or even tone this list down but it's really too early to say right now where the project is headed.

SegaSonic ArcadeCraft

The goal of this project is to recreate the 1992 arcade cabinet game, SegaSonic Arcade in Minecraft, letting you play with either Sonic, Ray or Mighty as you have to traverse each of the 7 stages of Eggman's Island and survive the deadly traps and obstacles along the way.
This is only a short project so I plan to release the full game for download when it's ready, rather than releasing earlier builds for download every year.
You can see an early sneak preview of the project down below.

Animal Crossing Minecraft

This is a side project I'm working on in an attempt to bring the world of Animal Crossing to Minecraft. The finished version is going to be a huge world of over 20 unique villages all connected by a railway system, a large city and small town to explore, a tropical resort island and even chao gardens. Every single existing Animal Crossing NPC will be part of the project as well as over 50 human residents that you can interact with.
No word on when the project will be finished but as it's much smaller than my other projects, I'd much rather release the finished version for download instead of releasing updated beta versions every year.

You can see an early sneak preview of the project here:

Katherine and Hippoloid

This is a project of mine that I've been passionately taking about for years yet have very little to show for in terms of progress, but Katherine and Hippoloid was my first project that I started when I was 15 and have been very enthusiastic and passionate about ever since.
It's a 5 part story about a girl named Katherine and her best friend Rhys who (while never explained in the story) both have superhuman like abilities to be able to defy gravity and basically travel around the world as freely as a feather.
But in the story their entire world is under attack from an alien invasion lead by an evil tyrant known only as Untitled and a secret resistance group lead by a small hippo named Hippoloid join forces with Katherine & Rhys in an effort to stop the invasion and save both of their worlds from Untitled's rule.

Outside of concept character artwork and the story itself I don't have much to share on the project but I really do hope in the future to be able to turn this into my own video game series, animated series or at the very least a web comic.

This is a project I've been passionate about for most of my entire life now.

Outside of this, I have plenty of other projects in the works, from fan games to animated shorts, comic books and loads more. It's a long road ahead but I'm going to work hard to try and make it all happen. Hopefully you'll enjoy what I have in store.

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 2, 2016, 1:34 PM

::The Crimson Emo's Journal::

Cross paths by TheCrimsonEmo Dudley St, Birmingham 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Westgate St, Gloucester 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Commission: Katherine and Rhys by QuantumJinx

Hey guys, welcome to my DA page.

Here I plan to bring you all my latest projects for the future as well as upload all my artwork and photography.
My main aspiration in life is to make it big as an animator and game designer, I hopefully wanna move to the big city and set up my own little art studio so I can make my dream happen.
Thanks so much for supporting, and hopefully you'll enjoy my work too when it's ready.
- Ashton

I am grateful for everyone who views and enjoys my work, sorry if I can't respond to every single comment and message I get but I hope you understand, very often I'm really busy and I can only respond to a handful of messages at a time.

If you wanna use my Photography as stock or colour in any of my art, don't hesitate to ask. But please wait for my permission first otherwise I'm going to treat your devitation as art theft and instantly report it.

::Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft '15 Download::

Happy New Year everyone! I didn't have time to make a journal beforehand so I posted the update in my previous journal but just incase you missed it, the latest update for both Sonic Adventure Minecraft and Shenmue Minecraft is now up and ready for download.…

If you downloaded this beforehand there was unfortunately a bug that came with it preventing Sonic Adventure Minecraft from working properly. The issue has been taken care of now and the old download file has been replaced with a newer one so if your download isn't working properly, just download it again from here.
Have fun!

And just for the sake of randomness, if you've ever been curious to what Disney's Aladdin would of been like if Dr. Robotnik from The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog replaced the Genie then here's a little something I put together that you might find entertaining.…

--Journal update--

I completely forgot to mention this in the journal but for those who were wondering why my other project, Sonic Craft Adventure wasn't included with SA and Shenmue Minecraft, I mentioned it briefly before but I decided to withhold and delay the project until March.

Sorry to disappoint everyone who was interested in the Alpha Demo I showed off before but I feel the project is in too unfinished a state to release it in it's current form. I still have so much work to do with it before I can even consider it a functioning Sonic fan game so its just for the best to delay it for a while longer.
Sorry about that.

On the plus side though, I've made a ton of progress with Shenmue Minecraft over the past few days. I've cleaned up all of Dobuita and Sakuragaoka, Almost completely finished Aida Park and Takome Village, added a ton of detail to Dobuita Station and have even built a fancy 7 screen multiplex cinema within the station which unlike the smaller cinema in Dobuita is actually fully explorable.

Most important of all however, Amihama harbour is now fully explorable. It's still lacking a lot of detail but the harbour is completely built down to scale and is open for exploration now. I'm now building all of the areas around the Harbour and will soon begin work on Amihama Station.

As I mentioned before, Amihama Station is the most important part of the entire project because this station acts as a central hub to let you travel to all the other locations and cities that I'm planning to include in the project.

So from this station you'll be able to hop on the train to visit Central Tokyo, Shanghai, Maceu, Quebec (where Nozomi's parents live), but more importantly, it'll take you to Hong Kong where all of the locations from Shenmue 2 will be.
From there, Golden Qr. in Wan Chai will act as the 2nd main hub as from there you can travel to Kowloon, Guiyang and Guilin, which from there once the entire Guilin location has been built, I'll start adding in all of the locations from Shenmue 3 (once the game is out that is.)

So yeah, that'll be the full Shenmue experience in one awesome package.
I'll need to start playing Shenmue 2 again at some point as I need photos and reference images to work with but bear in mind, none of what I mentioned will be ready for years to come.

Yokosuka is still FAR from finished and I really don't want to start building new locations until I'm at the very least 90% done with what's already been established here.
I mean the highway itself is still completely bare bones and devoid of anything besides empty roads and pavements. That needs a lot of work and again, the harbour is still completely bare bones right now with unfinished wire mesh buildings in the scenery and a blue grid holding the sea in place.

None of any of this will deter from my other projects however, I try to set a strict schedule aside so each of my projects gets equal attention put into it. I just personally get burned out if I'm always focused on one project alone which is why I prefer to have multiple projects going at once so I can just jump in and out of them as I see fit.

One thing I am really considering doing however is having a fun contest included in my projects.
The idea I have in mind is to have Cubot and Orbot from the Sonic series hidden in 20 different locations throughout both Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft. You have to try and hunt them down in each secret area and when you do, they'll ask you a random trivia question related to either music, movies, video games or Tv shows (E.G. What's the name of the actor who played Jackie Ma in Sleeping Dogs, what's the name of Karen Walker's maid in the TV sitcom Will & Grace or what was the first solo album Kelly Rowland released after leaving Destiny's Child?)

it'll be your mission to track them down in every secret location, write down the answers to all of the questions and them submit them to me on either Deviantart or Youtube and depending on how many questions are answered correctly, you could win an awesome prize.

Like say if you get 40% of the answers correct I'll name a store after you in one of the projects, if you get 60% correct I'll make you as an NPC to be included in the game, if you answer 80% correct I'll actually build an entire store, shop or business somewhere in the game and let your NPC character manage the store and even let you choose what custom dialogue the NPC version of you says to the player, and if you manage to answer all of the questions correctly I'll even throw in a free art request to go with it.
How does that sound?

I'm also thinking of holding a separate contest on the side where I'll ask questions based around some of my written works such as Robotnik in Wonderland and if you can answer them all correctly, I'll give you early access to my projects many months before they're released to the public.

I'm still on the bench about whether this is worth the effort of going through or not. I have tried doing contests like this in the past and they've fallen on deaf ears so depending on how much interest in the idea is generated, depends on whether or not I'll pursue it.
It does seem like a cool idea though.

On a different note I'm really excited to finally be moving home this week. I absolutely hate the apartment I live in and can't wait to see the back of it. The flat I'm moving into I admit isn't as attractive but it's in a much nicer and quieter neighbourhood and it cuts my daily commute to work in half so thats always handy.
There's a lot of work to be done but I'm really looking forward to it and am considering giving each individual room its own theme. Having the main room being turned into a personal Gym that looks like I'm in a penthouse suite apartment in the middle of Birmingham City Centre with panoramic views of the city perhaps.
Maybe giving the living room or the kitchen an oriental feel with chinese ornaments, incense sticks and large city views of Yokohama lit up at night. Have the bedroom designed to look like Im right next to the beach with a fake window looking out to the sea front. It'll be great and I can't wait.

Really wanna get a cinema projector for the living room and a treadmill as well. Burglar alarms and CCTV cameras come first though, you can never be too careful.

And one final thing, here's some art I made for friends and family for Christmas that I forgot to post

Happy New Year!

-Journal Update 2-

Ok moving day has finally arrived. I'm still halfway packed and have been at it for a few days now. Come tomorrow I'll be out of here for good.
Sad thing is though and to my frustration, they can't fix the internet up in my new place until February so I'm going to be completely off the grid and without internet for an entire month!
To further add to the frustration the internet speeds in my area are incredibly slow and I'm going to be downgrading from 152MB speeds down to only 17mb!
God damn. Lets hope this is the only thing that goes wrong with this place... Seriously not a great start.
Anyway farewell for now I suppose.

:iconrobotnikrapeface:Hello there young man. I hope that you plan on leaving me a Christmas present on your doorstep come Christmas Eve. Otherwise, I am quite certain that I could fit in other places within your home if you fail to cooperate.
Perhaps you would prefer to find me in your refrigerator, or perhaps under your bed.

Otherwise, you sir have a good Christmas. ...:iconpinessplz:

Are we even still friends? You've been giving me the cold shoulder for so long now I honestly don't know if I should just give up caring tbh.
We don't really talk anymore, you ignore all of my messages and responces, only sending me random occasional links here and there or spamming my xbox inbox with depressing 'monday messages'.
The only time we really have conversations anymore is regarding your depression and suicide. It's clearly already past the point where nothing I say or do is ever going to help you in anyway which is why I stopped giving you advice about it.
I just don't know what to do anymore but I'm frankly sick of caring about it. Tbh this really does feel like a one way friendship half the time.
I dunno man, but I'm just sick of stressing over this shit.
You already told me a few months back that you pushed all your other friends away and i'm just here wandering if I'm the final target on that shitlist.

I mean, I just can't help you with what you're going through with your mom, losing your job and being dumped by that girl. I mean you were apparently dating her for 6 months prior and I didn't even know about it until the relationship ended and you were up in arms about it.
I just can't help you because you don't seemingly want help or want to do anything anymore... or maybe you already have and just didn't tell me. You could be an assistant manager at Aldi right now for all I buggering know. You don't tell me these things so I can only just assume you've been sat in the dark playing Xbox and sulking in self pity all of this time.
I dunno man, but I'm just so sick of caring anymore tbh. It's unneeded stress I frankly don't deserve.
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner May 14, 2015
I don't need you to care, Crimson. You live your life and I'll live mine. If you had facebook, I would talk to you a lot more because I absolutely hate typing, and facebook lets you send unlimited voice messages up to 1 minute each, while you type your side of the conversation. It would basically be how we used to talk to each other on Xbox, except I don't have to keep stopping what I'm doing to read and reply to your messages. This website is dead to me and I barely check it anymore.
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've been wandering the same thing, I haven't heard from or spoken to you in ages? What happened?
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner May 14, 2015

Oh my god that was priceless! I actually fantasize about the same thing in Shenmue when I'm bored at work sometimes.
Just random funny shit happening with the characters, though my fantasies are way more fucked up.
I like to pretend all the characters in shenmue are satanists who have to do all this crazy shit to please Iwata and Miyamoto, the gods of nintendo.
So ryo and ren would have all these bayonetta like powers and be sent on these wacky missions that involves looking for a virgin fisherman at the harbour to sacrifice to help the tomato convenience resurrect segata sanshiro or helping yamagishi-san marry little megumi or helping Iwao hazuki and Lan di find a magic vanity mirror and they have all these crazy demonic powers like being able to summon the boat from steamboat willie or the cat bus from my neighbour totoro. Its just bizarre wacky shit like that.
