Hello, readers! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week through April’s first seven days. If not, then hopefully this is the sort of that is sure to boost your spirits! Ladies and gentlehogs, you are now reading the premiere article of an all new weekly column: Sound Test Saturday! Just like Mash-Up Mondays feature music mash-ups between Sonic and any other party, Sound Test Saturdays will highlight music – original compositions, covers, or remixes – made by the Sonic community. That’s right! Sound Test Saturdays will concentrate on music created by you! Continue reading Sound Test Saturday: A Funky Premiere of Green Symphonies!
Even though Discoponies is on holiday at a secret location he still has time to post some fantastic things over at the Sonic Show. Today he’s posted something a little unique. Jim Sass, the guy who runs Sasso Studios has put together along with a cast of family and friends, a full-length Sonic fan-movie…
Project Chaos, the fanmade Sonic 3 & Knuckles remix album released in 2006, is awesome. Undeniably, categorically so. There are a few spotty tracks in it though – Dan Baranowsky’s ‘Knuckleduster’ being one of them. So anything that makes the rubbishy songs on an awesome album look or feel closer to awesome is in fact, awesome news (still with us?). Which is why this, an animatic created by artist ‘Thweatted’ to complement the song, is… well… awesome. Does anyone else need further proof that Sonic the Hedgehog should revert back to his classic style?
The Sonic Stadium will soon be host to a new Sonic the Hedgehog comic, due to release its first edition in Spring 2008. Here’s some information direct from the comic’s creators, Cleardream productions.
The comic is based primarily on the Sonic games, however it borrows elements from other continuities to create something fresh, exciting, and unique. The comic also aims to engage more mature readers and long term fans by portraying a more darker side to the Sonic universe as well as having a mature theme.

If you’ve been bouncing around internet rumours the past few weeks, you may have heard of a company called ‘Panovation Studios’, a brand new games developer that was reportedly creating an “online Sonic the Hedgehog RPG”.
But the confusion is finally cleared, as Panovation Studios have shut down their online website – the “unofficial-but-official” Sonic the Hedgehog online RPG was never in development.
The Sonic Stadium contacted Mark Greig, chairman of Panovation, for a statement after noticing the studio website had been taken completely offline for several days. According to Greig, the Sonic Online RPG was a complete fabrication by “somebody” that has yet to be caught. It would appear that whoever started these mass rumours played on the studio’s history to make it sound more believeable. Continue reading Panovation Not Making Sonic MMO
Some days ago TSS reported on a confirmed Sonic online project, although it was not to be revealed by SEGA or SONICTEAM, but rather a small starting company called Panovation Studios.
A special interview on the SEGA Boards, a complete denial of a project existing by SEGA themselves and masses of rumours fired up by fans turned what was assumed as an “official” title to be slammed as nothing more than vapourware, and even stating that such a project does not exist. Continue reading Sonic ORPG: Panovation Explained
Information has been passed to The Sonic Stadium of an upcoming future Sonic animation appearing on your screens. Except, this animation will be showing on your PC Screens, not your Television. Enter the latest (if there was any previous) Sonic Fan Animation to hit the Internet, Fight 4 Freedom.
Those that loved SatAM but hated Underground will take to this new show very warmly. The creator, Travis Martin, explains…
“It’s based off the SatAM series (with Sally, Bunny, etc…), but also has some new characters. It is expected to officially launch by August 2002.” So, in a mere few weeks, you’ll be seeing the first episodes of Fight 4 Freedom. If you’re interested, head over to the F4Freedom website at:
There is information (on a link to the old website), and two available trailers of the cartoon series to have a peek at. It’s looking very tasty, so roll on August 2002!
A Sonic fan cartoon, NAoStH is being created, it’s been going on for quite a while but it’s finally getting into animation. The episodes will be downloadable in .exe format with DVD style menus and features.
Whilst we test the animation, we will release short sketches, around 30 seconds long, to show off the animation and voice acting, and NAoStH (N stands for New) is a bridge between AoStH, SatAM and SegaSonic. AoStH was the only cartoon to ever stick to SegaSonic and not contradict it, so we have a new series with more stuff from the game, character development, and more accuracy to the game.
We have Sonic looking like his AoStH style, but with his SegaSonic hairstyle, kinda like Sonic Underground:
We’ll be sure to keep you posted. This news was sent to me by Sambo, who does the mouseart+animation.
