shc2016_sonic

Character mods, fishing derbies and content restoration are all welcome in the return of the Sonic Hacking Contest for the year of 2016! The contest has been accepting entries for quite awhile. This time however the website has gone live which will mark the home for all entries and streaming personalities showcasing the entries and judging the results.

Remember though, entries are accepted until October 9th. Both longtime contenders and newcomers are always accepted so long as you have an account with us at Sonic Retro or Sonic Stuff Research Group.

I’m still waiting for the ultimate hack for Sonic Lost World  to appear, and now that time has come for you to show everyone! Head on over to the new website and good luck to all participants!

Is your Sonic library on Steam lacking a few titles? Why wait for a Steam sale when you can set your own price and meet payment tiers in the latest Humble Bundle featuring a trove of Sonic games that can be redeemed on Steam which includes Sonic Lost World and an exclusive T-shirt for $35. Games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Generations all feature their DLC included as well, except for our good buddy Simon from Yogscast in Transformed. The SEGA Genesis and Mega Drive games also take advantage of the updated emulator that supports ROM hacks as well.

If you’re not familiar with how the Humble Bundle works, you can set the price on what you would pay for the games and receive a Steam validation code for each game covered by your payment. You can also pay above two different tiers with one being the average paid amongst different users on the Humble Bundle. Previous Humble Bundles included mobile Sonic titles and the Archie Sonic comic series. This marks the first time Sonic games on Steam appeared in a Humble Bundle set.

Be sure to check out the Humble Bundle page on more information. More games will be added to the bundle in the near future which do not require additional payment. Hit the jump to see what games are available in the bundle.
