Took you long enough

25 years ago to this day, the original Sonic 3 was released for the Sega Mega Drive across European territories. Being from Portugal myself, I still have a full boxed copy!

In celebration of this date, I am proud to announce that a disassembly of Sonic 3 is now available, more than ten years after the original Sonic & Knuckles disassembly was released.

...Wow, I don't even know where to begin. Just five or six years ago I was still exclusively messing around with graphics stuff, afraid to touch any of the scary assembly code. Before I knew it, I was programming entire objects from scratch, writing a blog which is at least 50% assembly code, massively improving the level editor experience, and now this.

None of these things would have happened if not for the people at my side each step of the way. My undying gratitude to Tiddles for always supporting me and getting me on this wild ride. Thanks to MainMemory for always being there to talk and share war stories. Thanks to the readers of my blog for the motivation and for showing interest in a Sonic 3 disassembly. And ultimately, thanks to flamewing for graciously approving my pull requests to the skdisasm repo.

I hope you will continue to support me in my future endeavors. The ride's not over by any stretch of the word.
