It hit a state of cancellation, but was picked up again in 2014. Not quite sure where it's at now.

Project Reboot
On June 23rd, 2014, The Facebook page for Sonic 2 HD announced that they had begun work again on the fan game. The reason for this is the fact that a fan of the project independently created and submitted his own engine to Vincent, for evaluation. After integrating the art assets from the alpha release and successfully testing it, Vincent began to let the rest of the prior team members know, deciding to pick up where they left off save for those who were unavailable due to real life obligations.

Recruitment
On June 25th, 2014, the team announced that they would be accepting submissions from fans for staff positions as either sprite artists or animators. The original plan was to recruit one artist and one animator, but the team ended up recruiting 6 new staff members due to a large influx of talented submissions. Blog Post

​Latest Version: Alpha
Latest Release Date: 2012-03-27
Engine: SonicOrca
Would be useful if the OP actually told us what platform the game runs on! Even if you traipse through the download link (to a blog page) to another download page and then a third one, it's still not clear what you need to run it - unbelievable!

To stop you all from guessing, I downloaded the zip file (still no clue then...), unpacked it and it appears to contain Windows binaries/DLLs. Not all of us run Windows you know!

My apologies, it wasn't an intentional omission. I have updated the title/description.

I also don't run Windows.

False positive?

It's not malware, it was due to bad coding making it appear like there was a keylogger.

In early April 2012, shortly after the Alpha Release, it was mentioned to … In early April 2012, shortly after the Alpha Release, it was mentioned to ScarredSun from an antivirus employee that there seemed to be a possible "keylogger" packaged with the S2HD Alpha. She immediately posted about the threat, not going into it much more, saying she would update further when more information was available. It spread across the Internet quickly, with many websites saying to remove the demo altogether to prevent possible information being stolen. Polygon Jim, a tech member on the forum, noticed that it had to do with a poorly-coded DirectInput handler [2]. The input code grabbed input even when the window wasn't focused, which is similar to how some keyloggers act. After this was brought to everyone's attention, it was immediate that the issue was simply the poorly coded engine, which was done by LOst. Scarred Sun revoked her previous statements and apologized for her actions.
