The Sonic Amateur Games Expo Returns in 2017!

SAGE makes its triumphant return on…

September 30th – October 7th!

For the uninitiated, there’s a whole dang page on the Sonic Retro Wiki with SAGE’s history here! Hit the jump for more information, including this year’s submission guidelines! Make sure to give them a thorough read, as a lot has changed this year!

Why should I submit my work to SAGE?

SAGE is an online event specifically made for you to showcase your game-making and/or streaming talents! Make new acquaintances or friends, and to take part in a very creative side of the Sonic and indie gaming community! SAGE submissions are not exclusive to only Sonic the Hedgehog related content. If you have a project to show, submit it!

Submission Guidelines

Game entries must be submitted to [email protected].

  • Each game entry must have a title/logo to display for it’s respective game, PNG format, at least 500 x 500.
  • All game entries must be submitted by September 23rd. If your game will not be finished before that time, it will not be featured in the event.
  • ROM Hacks are allowed, given they significantly change something about the games they are based on.
  • Personal web pages that link outside of SAGE, aka ”booths,” are returning this year! Please ensure your booth has at least a description of what your game submission is all about, along with a zip file containing your game. Feel free to include any links to soundtracks, websites, game credits, or miscellaneous information about your entry.
    • When submitting your game, please do not send us your game as a submission. We just need a direct link to the page/site you will be using.
    • Booths do not need to be complex and can be created by any means possible. Feel free to use your own personal server or a free website creator/host, such as wix.com!
    • You are responsible for your booth, including hosting and maintenance. If your booth does not contain your game or does not load properly, it will be removed from the games page until it is fixed.
  • Your submission must be a complete demonstration or full release of your game project.
  • If you have multiple game projects to submit, please follow the submission guidelines for each project.
  • Engines are welcome but must follow the same guidelines as stated above.
  • PLEASE NOTE: In respect to both SEGA and the Mania team, during SAGE 2017, we will not be accepting games using OR replicating Sonic Mania assets, including sprites, graphics, music, and sound. No exceptions, your game will not be accepted if you violate this rule.

Streaming Guidelines

We’ve got way more to announce in the coming weeks, so make sure to keep an eye out, and we’ll see you in September!

    I’ll admit, the Mania rule feels kinda stupid.
