SAGE — the annual Sonic fan game event — has showcased a lot of brilliant ideas. While plenty of them are pixelated and game hacks, Sonic Ages takes it a step further by being probably the first hand drawn Sonic game.
The inspiration behind it is taken from the Sonic OVA and Sonic CD intro. As a fan of that art style I’m all over this. It’s still rough around the edges (the collusion is broken in some areas, and plenty of place holders) but as a work in a progress it seems promising.
And One can’t help but feel that Sonic Mania has ignited a passion amongst fans. Good on you SEGA. Bring on the good stuff.
