It’s that time of year again! Sonic Fan Games HQ presents the premiere online event in the Sonic community, the Sonic Amateur Games Expo, is now open!
There are over 30 fan projects to check out! Newcomers, like the popular Sonic 2: Dimps Edition, is on display and playable. Sonic Redux, Sonic Zeta Overdrive, Sonic the Hedgehog 3D and Sonic Phoenix are back, Sonic Babies, a demo at last year’s show, is now a full release and some heavy-hitters make another return appearance in the form of Sonic Time Twisted, Sonic Fusion and Stealth’s E:02 Engine. The featured game, however, is Retro Channel, a SAGE-exclusive project that features a wealth of interactivity.
On the events side, check out this line-up!:
- Eggman Voice Challenge with Mike Pollock (Wednesday, August 11th @ 7 PM EST): Think you’ve got the huevos to fill the role of Eggman? Join the REAL voice of Eggman, Mike Pollock, and contestants on Skype to see who can be the best Eggman of all!
- Q&A with Corey Bingas (Friday, August 13th @ 2-3 PM EST): The one-time voice of Tails from Sonic Adventure stops by to answer your questions in the SAGE chat room. Since you guys worship voice actors like gods, this chat is for you!
- Bad Fan Fic Readings: The heads of the Sonic community get together to read ban fan fiction! Check in daily for times!
Contests? Yeah, SAGE has them. Try your hand at any of the following:
- Original Sonic Tune Contest (ENDS Saturday, August 14th @ 12 PM EST): Write your own original Sonic level tune! No remixes allowed here. Be as creative as you can to write music for an undiscovered Sonic world! Winning entries will be decided the last day of SAGE.
- Sonic Parody Tune Contest (ENDS Thursday, August 12th @ 12 PM EST): Take any existing Sonic theme with lyrics and turn it into a horrible, twisted parody! Winning entries will be decided on Thursday. This is a written-entry contest, but feel free to record yourself performing your parody too!
- Write for TSSZ Contest (ENDS Tuesday, August 10th @ 12 AM EST): In a one-day contest, write the funniest, most inflammatory article possible on something about the Sonic community, whether real or fake. Winners are decided at the end of the day. Can you be the biggest douchebag the community has ever seen?
What are you waiting for? There are games to play, chats to partake in and casts to listen to.
