To learn more info please look at the journal i link. Also please do not attack any users that are mentioned on this thank you.

I thought i link this journal to get the news more out there please do not try this sonic fan game for the sake of your computer safety. idk much but from the sound of it this is big issue and from what i can see it idk if this is consider illegal or not but even then this is a big no no.   about the malicious release of Sonic Gather Battleokaaaaay, so the entire Sonic and Sonic fan game community is exploding over the final(?) release of Sonic Gather Battle (1.5d).
there have been concerns about the game having DRM to the point it can close your browser via typed search terms, dodge any antivirus program to function properly, and block you from playing the game normally in a creepy way.
this is all true sadly
here are the important screenshots about the dilemma:

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/383820775125155871/389590915263496194/image.png (SFGHQ announcement)
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/383820775125155871/389912275416252417/muh_culture.png (SonicRay's excuse on why they keep doing this)
a Discord user name Metakimi provided a example of how far the DRM can go to avoid specific antiviruses. Apparently, the software, Comodo, can neuter the measure to the point it hopelessly proceed on.

never in my life i would see a sonic fan game get this fuck up. in my opinion the guy shouldn't be making fan game at all if he going to go this far to do stuff like this. i feel i may remember this game from a way while back about some sprites issue and i'm not sure if he the same guy. it feel like it is but idk. really the main point here is just stay away from this sonic fan game due to the issue.
Edit 1:   I can not beleve leemena is at it again. ):(I can't do much to fix the problem, but can only help by spreading the word the best I can.
For those that don't remember, sonic gather battle became controversial, when the developer threw a fit, went around falsely accusing people, and harassing them using his fanbase.  I actually butted heads with the fan dev. before, but because of his foreign language from Taiwan, it didn't do much to fix the problem.
Now I've completely lost respect in him, because this was a low move he just pulled.    For any sonic the hedgehog fan out their DON'T play this fan game, "Sonic gather battle," because like what sid said, its infested with DRM  Malware, and could put your PC at risk.   Leemea put that stuff in the game to ward of thieves, and to hack the your pc.
 So don't do it.  Its not worth it.
  (another journal on the same issue please read this one as well .w. )so my thoughts was right if you remember way back a guy name SonicBleachFan you know the one that went ape shit over sprites was rip from his game. yeah sonic gather is made by the same guy. I thought it was familiar with little gameplay i seen. so he going far to do some illegal shit now. so you are going this far to protect this so call game? regardless how you went about what you are doing is fucking wrong and i hope sega take action on you. please  STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUY FAN GAME. if you can please warn others get this news around. this need to be knows.

Edit 2:  Virus Free Sonic Gather Battle Sprites by XFireMHDev well that didn't take long and more are popping up. i also found out on yt videos on this issue he is commenting saying the game is safe. DO NOT BELIEVE HIS WORDS. he has already destroy his own fan game reputation at this point. again i HIGHLY recommend not to download the game at all cost. he can try all he want to try to protect the game but they are getting rip one way or another i won't be surprise that someone already found a way to rip them. please also read the comments and such what i link and what i feature here in this journal.

Edit 3: i'm just adding more journal and such on this issue as i do want to get ever info i can find out there to know for your guys safety.  Sonic Gather Battle - Summary/HistoryDisclaimer: Yes, I know I talked about this game already (and you might be tired hearing me talking about it) and a lot of people possibly did this WAY better than me, but I wanna talk about the situation and every detail I can find about this. I originally wanted to do a video but I'm sure I'll screw up so I'm doing a journal instead. I'll leave my sources bellow this rant/documentary so you could read those yourself.
 
So I'll talk here about the next things:
1. The beggining
2. The start of controversy
3. Program actions
4. Consequences
1. The beggining
It all started in 2009 when LeemenaDan (Also known as SonicBleachFan) released a fan game called "SonicVLF2". He made it clear that he didn't wanted people to rip "his" sprites, those being only some edited sprites of Sonic Battle/Advence. However, when people started to rip the sprites he just started to harrash the persons and even said he will stop developing the game.
BONUS: Also I read on the "Crappy games" wi
  • Listening to: Fist Bump From Sonic Forces
  • Reading: stuff
  • Watching: gameplay and stuff
  • Playing: Any games i feel like playing
  • Eating: pizza
  • Drinking: coke and sparkling water

I've heard about the game, never really sat down and looked it up, until after seeing this. seeing the phrase not only from the journal and comments here "the creator put a virus in the game so that way nobody can cheat, rip, or mod anything in the game" just... is just sounds like the creator of the game counterdicted himself ((if I'm saying the word counterdicted right)) First of all... if you want people to play the game.. why put a virus in it? It's just gonna make people not wanna play it. Second of all.. there a thing called "Youtube" there is no protection from cheating and ripping in many cases. And lastly... some of the sprites he used was made and owned be Sega.. sure he made a few custom sprites for Sonic, but... most of those sprites were made by Sega, plus... IT'S A FAN GAME THAT IS FREE. It's not like the creator is making money off it. Just wanted to give my input here and thank you for listening. :)

On the one hand, this sounds pretty interesting and all. I like how these certain PC horror games can somehow "hack" into your computer and cause some creepy shit to happen behind the game window screen and all. Like opening notepad and leaving creepy messages, opening up a downloaded file of horrific images to even changing your desktop background or whatever. But from the looks of the info being a "ransomware" where you have to give your computer info to a guy it's pretty fucked up and sends in some strong signals and warning flags all over. I guess to be on the defending side it could be their intention, maybe to punish those who cheated in this fangame (because that's what I'm getting at from the info provided) but still it's pretty messed up.
