Sonic VR Proof of Concept Found

The Sonic Stadium has discovered a proof of concept for a Sonic the Hedgehog virtual reality project. The concept was developed for SEGA by Big Sky VR a Los Angeles based studio who worked on Coachella Explorer the first-ever mobile 3D simulation of the Coachella Music Festival. Big Sky describes their Sonic concept as a puzzle game in which our blue hero takes the user on an adventure through typical Sonic environments, though they fail to elaborate on any puzzle elements.

Big Sky developed a proof of concept for Sega to help them bring their icon Sonic the Hedgehog to the world of Virtual Reality. In this puzzle game experience Sonic escorts our user along an adventure that takes him across land sea under volcanos and above the clouds thats true to Sonic form.

Big Sky’s Greg Edwards has shared a video of the demo on his Vimeo account two months ago indicating that this is a very recent project. Whether anything more will come of this further down the line is unclear, but it’s interesting to know SEGA is looking at bringing Sonic to the world of virtual reality.

Sonic Dreams Collection Brings Your Fan Fiction Nightmares To Reality!

Ever wanted to play the games that SEGA never got around to finishing for the Dreamcast? Well now, finally, we all can!

Sonic Dreams Collection was released today by Arcane Kids, a  studio that is known for putting together “unique” little projects together, such as the return of Bubsy3D.

The concept in this new collection is that after years of lurking in the depths of development hell, a leak has caused these prototypes of the 90s to rise back to the surface. This unique group of games will see you creating your own original character, playing an MMO and not to mention the most interesting look into the world of fan fiction. Oh, did we mention things get weird very quickly?

If you’re so inclined, the “leak” can be found here with the password “grandpa”. If you aren’t in the mood for torturing your mind, and would rather watch someone else who’s brain was burnt along time ago, enjoy the videos below![youtube]https://youtu.be/qfKeWrvO57o?list=PL4T2Dd-NV0aZ8OGb03op34Ork4QAw5oQX[/youtube][youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8jmFkAUYjE[/youtube][youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MT8jKmKD1Jg[/youtube]
