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! Make sure to give this year's submission guidelines 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!

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!

Just to verify, are we able to send in a game as a submission, without putting together a separate site to use as a booth? I've been slowly piecing together a game, and I might have enough for a small demo by the time SAGE comes around, but I know absolutely nothing about putting together a site or hosting anything. I was kind of hoping that I could just do something as simple as a MediaFire link and a couple pictures alongside a description for my demo. I'm not really that good at "selling" a project, honestly.

This.

Also, I assume one person can submit multiple entries? I have two at the moment, one will appear and maybe the second.

While not an asset, Sonic Time Attacked Max's Optional Character mode features the Drop Dash as an ability. Is this no go?

And yeah, echoing the above, I'm no salesman or webdesigner. :psyduck:
Will there be an in-site booth option?

Yay! SAGE is back X 3
I hope we get good submissions this year. I'm looking forward to a lot of the games.
Sadly I will not be entering, for good reasons.

Kyle & Lucy: Wonderworld will not be participating unfortunately, but we need more time to create a proper, polished demo, that accurately portrays what the game will achieve to be, rather than trying to rush something out in 3 months.

In the mean time, I have been working on drafts for a 2017 version of my Sonic Level Design guide (especially since a lot of the images no longer work or some points need to be revised). Sounds like SAGE would be a good time to have it ready by.

Got a lot of questions about this, in the past, SAGE used booths as a means for creators to be in complete control over how they wanted their game presented. Keep in mind, you don't need anything extravagant for a booth and there are plenty of stable, free options.

Sweet! Definitely looking forward to this!
