      Please continue to trample Sega with Sonic Islands and other projects in hopes that one day they finally get their's.

    Sonic Islands' SAGE 2018 demo is out! Check it out. Download is in the video's description.

    All credit for this build's major assets (programming, game and level design, modeling) goes to Steve Taylor / ShtankTank. Tho I will say I helped with game planning, (lots of) beta testing, level concept art, and that nice logo up there.

    If everything is recieved well enough, I'll get to join Steve on stretching our muscles in making something a bit more ambitious. 😎 In the meantime, enjoy sage2018 boyos.

      You and Steve have done a fantastic job. I had a lot of fun playing the demo and experimenting. Lots of positives. Keep at it!

    1. Marcello


      I was surprised about it being Blaze, too, but I guess it really shouldn't. Of all the post-Classic characters she seems to be the most well-received one. Even on places like NeoGaf/Resetera I often see people talking about how much they like her.

    2. Kuzu


      I'm pretty sure Blaze isn't going to be a regular, so I wouldn't get used to it.

    3. RedFox99


      Hopefully she isn't worfed like in the comics.

  6. real talk: if mario went a whole decade and a half of being pretty dang bad, them dropping it to move in a direction more focused on matching it's previous qualities would be nothing but a good thing.

    (granted that doesn't mean throwing away every idea they could come up with during that time, but yall should all know that good and well)

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano


      Paper Mario's been bad for half a decade, at least; It's high time that subseries abandons its sticker-focused direction and goes back to being a real RPG again.

      Sonic Team couldn't possibly play that with its lack of boosters and scripts.

      People have suggested before that Sonic should be taking inpiration from other things to form a consensus of understanding how to translate genesis level design into a 3D enviroment. Utopia demonstrates the physics this demonstrates how to translate a focus enviroment with those physics, and i'm not saying they should steal EVERYTHING from this but if this were a different Sonic Team i'd probably say "Look at this, get an idea of what X games do, look back at a previous attempt at physics based 3D, work on it godammit, work on it"

    11. Wraith


      This is his engine guys

      and yeah I'd say it feels a little better than Utopia. gasp

    12. SonicWind


      Great work, the both of you. Definitely gonna try this.

    13. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      @azoo Is there a download link to try this?

    14. azoo


      not yet. won't be for a good long time. give it roughlyyyyy.. a year.

      i'll update every now and then though. sorry for the wait, i've got too much irl to worry about this all the time like i used to. adulting and career carving, and all

      it will be worth it though. i promise.

    15. MegasonicZX


      Oh man azoo, I didn't know you were part of the dev team for this, good job man, you guys are doing a great job.

    16. JosepHenry


      The camera seems weird.

      Otherwise it seems to work well. Good job! Gonna try it by myself.

    17. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      So, will this be a complete game eventually, or is it just a test?

    18. Diogenes


      oh yes, this is the good stuff

    19. TheOcelot


      Looking forward to it, azoo

    20. azoo


      demo with a few levels and features. can't promise much.

      also this is actually a lot farther along than just this video, this is outdated by a good two weeks. anyways s'all i got, i'll update when we both agree to share new things from here on out. peace


    21. Ferno


      @azoo so you technically understandably left this forum due to forces and to focus on your original stuff, but you're also now keeping a foot in the fanbase door to try and keep momentum based platforming alive in hopes that sonic team will see it some day? Mad respect from me tbh. Most of us just talk and talk, but this is putting action behind that talk. Just don't let it affect work on your original projects too much and maintain a balance. As always I'm rooting for you from afar in all you do.

    22. azoo


      thanks dude. really <3

      honestly i can't let this be undone because this subject has been itching me for years and years. sonic hasn't been what i and others have wanted it to be for a very long time (if in some ways, ever), and noone (especially sonic team) is going to fix that for me. so, it's a DIY project at this point to make it come true, one that i ran from for a good few years after it failed the first time, and here i am doing it again because i can't get away until the itch has been scratched lmao

      oh well. shtanktank and i will do our best to make something (even if it goes unfinished), just to say it's been done. fingers crossed it turns out palatable.

      Shit, that looks really good, even got a wall run!

      I believe in you

      This is great

      It's perfect

      Don't let your dreams be dreams

    25. Indigo Rush

      @Joseph Henry with the lot of fangane projects like this, especially in pre alpha stages like this, the camera is not automated and is controlled manually by the devs.  

    26. Osmium


      It's people like you that give me faith in fans controlling Sonic's future 

  8. It's cathartic to know that everything i worried about from the footage i watched and shown concern for (only to be told "YOU DON'T KNOW YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED IT" was, in fact, right on the money. Good stuff ayyyy.

    Oh wait what am i doing here bye see ya in maybe 2 months when i comedy central roast the hell out of this

    1. Dejimon11


      Go to sleep Azoo

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      That's honestly kind of pitiful, but whatever helps you sleep at night, I guess?

    3. MegasonicZX


      Are you still doing that video/documentary or something that you planned on making as a response to sega's mixed design philosophy and what a good sonic game would actually be?

    4. azoo


      @Waveshocker Sigma if saying the act of calling a spade a spade is "pitiful" is what helps you sleep at night, then thats cool too yaknow 8y

      @MegasonicZX maybe maybe not. Idek at this point

      anyways wheres that peace sign fade away gif when you need it

    5. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Uh, I wasn't referring to your impressions on the game, azoo. That's all fine and dandy. I meant more of the schadenfreude bit of being so happy about essentially getting to go "HA HA! I was right!"

      I just figured your time away from this place would've given you something a bit healthier to be happy about in your first message here in awhile. Just makes it even more apparent of how ridiculous this whole Forces nonsense is on both sides, to me.

      Unless, of course, that's not what you meant you were happy about and I simply misunderstood you. In which case, nevermind.

    6. azoo


      It feels good to know i didn't bail for naught and that I'm just jaded and dumb.

      And just bc i get away from the core fanbase doesn't mean i can get away from Sonic. I'm still kinda surrounded by it on social media and junk, with so many friends just as into it as i am that its undodgeable lmao.


    7. Deead Dude
  9. Alright. Before I go, a message. I shpuld explain myself, after all.

    Sonic isn't for me anymore. Literally nothing about Forces is what I want out of the series. I didn't want vocal themes, I didn't want alternate gameplay styles, I didnt want edgy plots and edgier new characters, I didn't want talking in stages, I didn't want a character creator, I didn't want a totally confused identity as to what Sonic even is, I didn't want mindless nostalgia pandering to an era when Sonic was at it's lowest. I didn't just not ask for this; i actively didn't want it.

    I thought for years that Sonic Team, as haphazardly as it could, was trying to learn from its mistakes and misfires and become something lovable and respectable without caveats again. Ends up all they learned was that people like the classic Sonic design and don't like rushed games (two things that are true but ultimately besides the point).

    I wanted them to get rid of automation. That's here to stay. I wanted them to stick to one style. That's not happening. I want to see classic/SA gameplay revisited in 3D. Not happening. I wanted other characters playable. Not happening. I wanted competent storytelling that feels exciting and isn't embarrassing. Not getting that either.

    Now we're back in the same spot Sonic was in during 2004-2006, except the games aren't glitchy this time. What else do we have left from there? Archiesonic dies just as it's actually getting good, Sonic Boom continues to exist for no reason other than "lol funny joke", and Sonic PR is mainly just outdated memes and a self-depracating face that only reminds me of how bad we have it.

    The only thing i have left is Sonic Mania, a game I consider a beautiful love letter to fans like me who fell in love with what Sonic always was at it's core.. But it's half already existing levels and isnt quite what i wanted. Oh well, I'll take what i can get i guess!

    I can't even really enjoy forces or the current direction in an ironic way. I've cared too much about this series to just take it that casually. After all, i and many others here have been around for ages upon ages. So what do i do?

    Leave, i guess. So I'm no longer a mod here. No more responsibility to keep me coming back.

    Sonic isn't for me anymore, and has been moving that way for a good long time already. I've been hoping it steers back on track, but let's be real, it lost itself so long ago there's no real telling if it'll ever make it back. And if it does, who knows? I might return. But honestly, I doubt it. All my closest friends from here moved on up and out of here anyways, and I have their contacts.

    But yeah, I'm gone. 12 years I've been here. Wow. Good times here, bad times here. Been a trip. 

    Catch yall later. You know where to find me.


    1. TCB


      bye bye

    2. azoo



      Typed this on mobile. Might have typos lol.

    3. Zaysho


      Take it easy, dude. You've earned it.

    4. Strickerx5


      We might not agree on a majority of things in this franchise but I can at least see now where you're coming from and 100% respect it.

      Peace man

    5. TheOcelot
    6. Soniman
    7. ThePrinceOfSaiyans


      I have to ask, if Mania became a separate branch within the franchise, would you stick around? At that point, both crowds would be catered to. 

    8. Ferno


      "We might lose some fans along the road-"

      Sega anticipated this tbh.

      But anyway I'll see you elsewhere like always. I know we never talk much but your art stuff is inspiring and im always rooting for you from afar.

    9. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]
    10. SonicWind


      Best of luck, man. I'm sorry the series isn't to your liking anymore.

    11. Alienrun


      You need a break, that's all I'm going to say...

      After that feel free to come back and enjoy the fancy may mays lol :P

    12. Diogenes


      it's a shame to see you go, but hey, man: you're free now. sonic can't hurt you anymore.

    13. Deead Dude

    7. Strickerx5


      well I like it XD

    8. NegaMetallix


      Wait... everyone?

      But seriously, why Hoobastank? I didn't even realise they were still around.

    9. azoo


      @VEDJ-F which is exactly why i say ya'll wrought this

  14. I hope y'all have enjoyed all the fucking awesome games that have been announced / shown more footage of this E3 that aren't Sonic Forces bc holy lord is there a plethora of things you can look at and enjoy right now that aren't the world's biggest dumpster fire

    and now as e3 has ended i can finally disappear for weeks at a time once more rather than reminding yall once every two days that non-classic-specific sonic fans are living in the worst timeline imaginable



    1. Deead Dude

      Deead Dude

      what are you talking about?

      forces is the best one


    Forces looks absolutely, unbelievably awful. Like, to the point where the game feels like a blatant self-sabotage because of how many bad decisions they went through with in the making of this game, but I sadly know it's not because it's Sonic Team and they fully truly believe they made something special here.

    This is bad. Really fucking bad. The UI, the extremely stiff modern gameplay (that looks to take a big page from Colors instead of Gens for controls), classic sonic being 1000% unnecessary, the custom character thing doesn't even look remotely fun, and THE CHARACTERS ARE CONSTANTLY TALKING THROUGHOUT THE GAME LIKE IN HEROES AND 06.


    anyways see ya

    1. Deead Dude

      Deead Dude

      imagine the look on your face if i proved you it'll be an awesome game....

      (please dont go)

    2. Soniman


      modern looks identical to gens just with some colors shit

    3. azoo


      it looks to control nearly identical to colors, if not worse. steering looks really stiff, turning seems really awkward. unleashed/gens were much more slippy-slidey (gens lesser so but still had you coast around a bit.. which is a good thing, mind).

      also nah this game's making literally every bad decision ever so i doubt i'll even come around to liking it ironically lol

    4. Deead Dude

      Deead Dude

      b-b-but....you didn't play it...

    5. azoo


      said the people calling out fans for not playing sonic 4 yet and complaining about how the controls looked

      it's really not hard to tell by game footage how well a game controls. especially when a seasoned fan.

      kill me


      please kill me while you're still here you can free me

  17. The only series i want to see get a "Breath of the Wild" tier rebirth worse than Sonic is Pokemon tbh.

    Also lol hi bye again

      sun & moon's 3D-ness just makes me even angrier that i can't move the camera

      *i mean i didn't wanna leave the tile-based stuff behind to begin with but if you're gonna go full 3D atleast let me move the camera

    6. azoo


      If sun and moon is Pokemon's BotW then thats pretty pathetic lol

    7. Deead Dude

      Deead Dude

      please dont go

      we love you and dont know whats best for you

  18. Hey y'all so you wanna know why disappointment in video games will never leave me

    bc Rayman is never gonna get another 3D game and in fact will probably never get another game at all, rather having Legends ported to everything til the end of time like how Rayman 2 was during the 7-8 years before Origins when the franchise died the first time

    anyways bye again

  19. hey so mania looks like it's made of dreams and forces looks like it's made of nightmares

    hi bye


    1. Dejimon11


      Tell me how you really feel man

  20. So, this came a bit earlier than expected.

    In a few months, I'll be putting together a video and we'll try bringing it to Gene and Aaron. I cannot leave my position just yet, because it will require cooperation from the fanbase to make this work, but considering I stick to my word, you won't be seeing me very often from this point onward.

    Just believe me when I say that I have not forgotten either parts of my promise.

    Until then, stay gold. Bang.

    1. Mil-O-Lantern


      don't do this

      we need you

      just say you're bluffing

    3. Ferno



      you were a great mod, but hey you'll always pop in from time to time as a regular member plus I'l occasionally see you elsewhere so it's not all bad

      gives you more time to work on your original series too so there's also that. use the salt from this series to better your own.

    4. TCB


      Good luck with that and smell ya later!
