I actually like this idea. I think we should wait about a week or three, then put all of our found knowledge together.

Interesting idea, but with its constant updates someone would have to be pretty dedicated to ensure the game stays up to date on the main site.

Not to mention, if Chao Island were to start documenting fangames with Chao, it'd be a bit unfair to single out one fangame and ignore all other attempts.
Just so you know, I am blind.

^What other fan games are there with Chao?

From what I know there's:

The fan game in question, Sonic World.

StarLand's unfinished Chao World.

And, TripleXero's Tiny Chao Garden Deluxe.

First off, StarLand's project is unfinished so we can't document it even if we wanted.
TripleXero's is currently, just a Tiny Chao Garden. While other stuff can be added and is planned, there's a small reason to document it right now.

Sonic World has stuff within that we can document. For example, we don't know if the game uses the same Run-Power and Fly-Swim sliders as Adventure 2 or not.
We could get pictures of all the Chao colors and evolutions. The differences between Sonic World and SA1&2. Stuff like that.

We don't even have to go that in-depth with it either. We could have, say, 4 pages of info on the game.

One giving an overview of the game.
Another with item info.
And one with Chao evolutions.
And lastly, one with a summary of the stuff we've found hidden a bit further in the game.

The overview would solve the problem of having to make an entire page for something like the Chao Fortune Teller, and her list of mundane names.

When we could just say something like, "In Release 7 of Sonic World the Chao Fortune Teller was added and offers pre-set names for your Chao just like Sonic Adventure 2."
and put a screenshot next to it.

The last one, would be put all our findings in a shortened way. For Example, "When a Chao uses a red Chaos Drive, it's position on the Run-Power slider changes."

And as done before, we could just have links to forum posts and videos that go more in-depth with this, like on this page.

But, now that I think about it we should probably have an actual fan-game section, that documents publicly released Chao fan games in the same fashion I suggested.

EDIT: Wait. I just remembered. Chao Island is "Your number one source for Chao information!"
I think this our job or something. Like this site is filling some sort of quota.

I also think this is a good idea. I would like to see other chao information on this site too than just the official chao garden information we already know and used to.

(Sorry I'm a bit late)

A suggestion to help this be enacted quicker, a main topic where we can all put what we have observed about the Chao in Sonic World. It would be a team effort but beneficial for the entire community. All in favor say 'I' (I've always wanted to say that :chaohappy:)
What, Christmas ended? Whatever, I'm leaving the decorations up!

I'm also selling a Heart Fruit, I thought buying the last would make it more valuable and increase the demand, it didn't.
Anyway it's still sold out and I'm still selling! Buy It!

I think it is worth while to collect information about the game, but it isn't something I'm interesting in participating in, and we may want to contact the creator to ask them how comfortable they are with us essentially sharing their game on Chao Island. While I doubt the creator makes any profit off the game, we still should be considerate to the interests of the creator before eager archiving how their game works. They may want to just flat out tell us how the game works.

Yes, I think Sonic World should be put on the Chao Island website. Other Sonic fan games may have chao in the future.

I think it would be cool to put a fan game on the site but i do think it would be best to do just official sega related things for the most part. That said SEGA hasnt done any chao in forever so who knows. Im for doing sonic world but I just dont know. We'd need permission first off but it could help the forum get more users.

We never asked SEGA when we made a SA1 and SA2 page.

Asking before researching the game or uploading to the site sounds like a plan to me.

But, as I said before we don't have to go all out with this since is a fan game, maybe just on the front page's navigation bar or something instead of being a big icon on the front page.

I found an immortality fruit in the black market.

There's my contribution, I haven't played it much. Mostly sa2, since every level in it is fairly easy and I don't have to worry about fixing game breaking bugs.

Edit: oh yeah, some fruit seem to not be programmed correctly and don't add stats at all, but from what I can tell it differs from person to person. For example, my chao didnt gain anything when eating the square green fruit.

Also, some fruit give more than one stat. Like strawberries giving either run or strength at random.

I don't care about asking their permission, they've made me angry.
They wont fix the game breaking bugs, they removed features that made certain characters unique, and besides the chao garden, this release is worse than release 5, seriously, go play release 5, it's great.

I needed to get that off of my chest, and felt like I should explain why I don't care about asking permission for this.
hey there! I don't have anything to put here for the moment, you can just move along now.
