@Corz.mp4 Nope, Sonic had been previewed heavily in magazines at the time. Even in Germany (where Quik & Silva was developed), previews started in January 1991. When Quik & Silva came out around April, it was still part of the Sonic marketing hype cycle ready for its release in June/July since release dates back then were more looser (June 23 might be the "official" release date but you was lucky to get a copy and more likely to pick up a copy in July or August even for an early adopter). For a platformer, Sonic 1 had hype for over six months! Something that you rarely get now because people are more cautious and have shorter attention spans, even Super Mario Wonder is more tamer.

Besides it was fairly common for games back then to be done in a few weeks, even a few days in the case of a few Ocean games (Total Recall and Operation Thunderbolt on the C64). Sonic 1 and Super Mario World had lengthy dev cycles for platformers, something like 18 months.

Yes! Because the company who made the game(New Bits on the Ram/Factor 5) needed money really quick, so to not go bankrupt, they made this game in about 2 weeks, and named it like that in form of a joke. If you want to know more about it, i recommend you to watch this video by Larry Bundy Jr/Guru Larry

Is this a reference to Quick Silver?
