Video Game: When Tails Gets Bored
When Tails Gets Bored: Special Edition is a Sonic the Hedgehog fangame released in 2000 by Matt of Sonic Vegemite. Unlike most other fangames, it's got a sense of humor to it, with a plot based on a series of joke hoax screenshots which revolved around Tails being bored and bothering Sonic.

Its age is rather obvious, as the corny jokes, MIDI music, and awkward controls from an early Clickteam software show. Nonetheless, it's still held in good regard by people who were in the scene back then for its innovations and depth. Even now it is worth a look.

The game was supposed to have a sequel named When Team3 Gets Bored, featuring a trio of Tails clones as the protagonists, but only a demo was released before the project was cancelled.
