The Votes Are In! Here Are The Winners Of The 2020 Sonic Hacking Contest

The 2020 Sonic Hacking Contest has come to an end. After a week of live streams, videos, and articles, it is time to hand out trophies to the winners. These entries stood out from the crowd and achieved the highest in quality. Some of them even managed to win multiple trophies.

There were some trophies that didn’t win anything, but a lot of entries did score multiple trophies. Sonic Megamix Mania and Pantufa the Cat Extended Edition stood out the most in that regard. We’ll be seeing the contest back next year, but for now here’s the full list of winners.
