SAGE 2017 Update: Booth Update and the Trailer!

Woah, hey, it’s been a bit, right?! We’ve got a couple quick updates regarding SAGE so let’s get right into it!

Just like last year, we’ll have another SAGE trailer to show off the exciting games coming this year! If you’d like your game featured, please send a 10 second clip of gameplay to [email protected] by 11:59 pm Central Time, September 14th. For examples of clips and what to expect, take a peek at last year’s trailer here!

Off-Site Booths are now optional. That’s right! Now that the new SFGHQ site is up and running in beta, instead of worrying about if you can make your own booth, or you lack the resources or what have you, then go ahead and create your booth using the site’s built in submission system! Awww yeah! It’s easy and gives you an better than ever method to get set up for SAGE! A lot of folks were, worried about creating their own site for their entry as well as archival of SAGE’s content. This will effectively accomplish both, while also wrapping everything up in an easy to use form set up!

Hit the jump to find out about on own hosting and how you can get yours up today! Continue Reading

We are now one week away from SAGE 2016. At this point in time, the staff is currently twisting knobs, duct taping holes, and looking at the site and going “that should probably hold.” While we continue to get things assembled and in line for SAGE’s comeback, there’s a number of things we’d like to announce and clear up before the 15th.

Sonic Amateur Games Expo Delayed Until Spring

CldwEXn

Right, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but here goes.

You might have noticed that the forum thread of the Sonic Amateur Games Expo (SAGE) on our forums was suddenly locked a few days ago. Well, that’s because the event, which was originally going to be held from December 18th through December 24th, has had to be delayed until Spring of next year.

This is because the SAGE staff decided that, instead of putting on a mediocre show with key members of the team missing, the best choice was to postpone the event until Spring, to give the community the best SAGE has to offer.

If you’ve been working your ass off to get your game entry ready before the original deadline (which was tomorrow), we get it if you’re angry about this announcement being so late. This really should have been announced sooner.

The Really Amateur Games Expo (RAGE) has also been delayed, but only until early January. While we don’t know the exact dates for either of the events yet, you can still read the guidelines for them in the thread on our forums.

Sonic Amateur Games Expo Starts Dec. 18

CldwEXn

With the 2015 iteration of the Sonic Hacking Contest now in the rear view mirror, those who missed the chance to enter can instead opt to enter the Sonic Amateur Games Expo.

Billed as a platform for amateur game developers to showcase their projects, the event offers an open invitation for anyone developing a game to register and give it exposure, even if it has nothing to do with Sonic or Sega.

Historically, SAGE focused on a week-long celebration and exposition of these games, and has featured guests such as MAGfest maestro Dominic “Andross Guy” Cerquetti and Mike Pollock. Events include entertaining activities such as Bad Fanfic Readings or a Dr. Eggman Voice Contest as judged by the good doctor himself. In between, people are invited to run a radio station or to stream shows to the community.

For a fully detailed list of guidelines for registration to stream or to submit a game, hit up this link. The last day to register is Dec. 11.

SAGE 2010 Extended Through Tuesday

Haven’t had the chance to pop on over to this year’s Sonic Amateur Games Expo?  Well, you’re in luck.  Katzu Niku and InstantSonic have announced an extension through Tuesday, known by most of us regulars as the annual “SAGE Hangover.”  I believe this year’s hangover is the first “scheduled” one.  Usually, we leave all the shit on and there just happens to be people still chillin’.  At any rate, we’re still partyin’ like it’s 2000 up in this bitch.  All the booths are up, the chat is still open and the SAGEcast is still jammin’.

One thing is for certain… there will be more Sonic Fights Robotnik fan fic readings! I’m sure David the Lurker just wet himself again.  That’s the seventeenth time in the past week.  To prove how epic these readings have been, here’s a clip of Mike Pollock, the voice of Dr. Eggman, reading a line from it.  Yeah, I know.  Awesome.

All hail Tankbot.
