I think that I have a problem within my game.

I have the PC version which I download directly from Steam.
I've already beaten the game once, and collected 3 emeralds, and 17 medals.

I can't see "Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine" in the Extras menu. I also can't see any button to activate any of the prior Sonic abilities which I should have by now.

I don't know if it's a bug or that I have hadn't done something yet that I should have

    @StevenVascellaro The tags you added seem unnecessary. This is not a technical issue, and is not a problem specific with the PC version of the game. Commented Aug 31, 2017 at 16:56

    Removed extra tags - as @DanmakuGrazer pointed out, they're not actually necessary for this question.

Try checking the "Secrets" menu by hovering over "No Save" in Mania Mode.

Based on the number of medals you've unlocked (17), I don't think you've unlocked any content in the Extras menu yet. Nintendo Life claims you need at least 20 medals to unlock Mean Bean Machine.

To clarify, Sonic Mania has two different menus for unlockable content: Extras and Secrets

Secrets Menu

  • (1 medal) Super Peel Out
  • (7-ish medals) Insta-shield
  • (12-ish medals) & Knuckles Mode
  • (16 medals) Debug Mode

Extras Menu

  • (20 medals) Mean Bean Machine (Source)
  • (24 medals) D.A. Garden
  • (32 medals) Blue Spheres

For more information, see Is there a reward for beating the Blue Sphere bonus stages?

  • @HashiramaSenju Go to mania mode and hover over the "No Save" option. There should be a prompt below saying what button you need to press. (if you take a screenshot, I'll add it to my answer)
