Hello Retro! This is pretty much a copy/page job from Sonic United/SFGHQ's forums. Just wanted to let everyone know what was going on with SAGE.

SAGE 2014 Act 1 is only 38 days away! As such now is the time to begin preparing your game and entertainment pages. As previously mentioned game and entertainment pages will be hosted onsite this year. You must register to gain access. Today I have started handing out usernames and passwords to access and edit booth pages for registered users. Registration instructions are as follows:

Once you've registered an email will be sent with information to login and start editing your SAGE Page(s).

Remember this year SAGE isn't just for games we're accepting all kinds of creative content through entertainment pages. Music, illustrations, videos, and more are also acceptable content and will be listed separately from the games on an entertainment page.

Game creators please also keep in mind that while we are allowing you to upload small files such as images to the SAGE server please host your game downloads elsewhere to save us bandwidth. We recommend Mediafire.com as downloading files is straightforward and Mediafire.com does not have a 20 second wait to start a download.


Original Announcement:

It's no small secret that SAGE has struggled the past few years. But thanks to many dedicated individuals SAGE has always been pulled off. Despite a lot of effort that didn't quite happen in 2013. Deranged Soma owner of SonicUnited.org and myself have are taking steps to ensure the success of SAGE for years to come. By building a website that can be easily reskinned for SAGE year after year no longer will we have to create the SAGE experience every year. From now on SAGE will be ready to go twice a year with all the features you've come to expect from past SAGE events. With that I'd like to announce SAGE 2014 Act 1.

Features:

SAGE Chat – As is the norm a SAGE chatroom will be accessible via the SAGE website or you can join using your favorite IRC client.

Game Pages – Using the popular CMS Wordpress Strong Gust and I have built a site to allow game authors to edit their game pages in real time on the SAGE sever. No more looking for a host or poorly designed booths. Game creators will be able to add verbiage and upload images directly to the SAGE website. We ask that you please host your demos and videos elsewhere but they can be linked easily from your SAGE page. We will have a list of recommended file hosts soon.

Entertainment Pages – Similar to game pages artists and content creators will be able to upload their works to their very own page on the SAGE website. Uploads can include music and images. You are also welcome to embed youtube videos or link to offsite files to download. If you are unsure you content qualifies contact us!
All pages will allow for commenting so that contributors can get feedback on their works.

To Register for Page(s) send the following to: [email protected]
Booth banner: 200 x 96
Desired Username and an email address for setting up an account to access your SAGE Page(s).
A description of the page(s) you'd like to contribute.
We will make the final decision on how many pages your submissions require. Games will get their own pages. For other submissions we might ask you to put your fan art and music on a single page. We will look at each situation individually.

Registrations are due by February 15th

SAGE Promo Video – We will be releasing a SAGE promo video in the weeks following up to SAGE. Submit your game to [email protected] by February 1st to have your game included.

Events

Panels – panels are returning this SAGE using Ustream. Panel hosts will be able to access the live video stream using Ustream tools to stream their computer screens or cameras.

What is a Panel? Next to the fan games, panels are the main event at SAGE. We'll be hosting panels via Ustream which will be embedded on the interactive page alongside the chatroom as in years past. Panels can be anything ranging from a music show, game creation tutorials, skits, fan fic readings, game review shows, live gameplay, or anything else you can think up.
If you would like to run a panel write a short pitch and send it to [email protected]

Announced Panels

Spark's Level Design Panel

Yeah, as the initial post says. SAGE is going back to twice a year. We're also accepting page registrations for art of almost any kind.

D'oh. Dunno how I missed that. When's Act 2? There's a slim possibility I can make it, but then I've said that before

Has the SAGEcast been nixed altogether? Would love to do some streaming again this year, it's been too long. :v:

We're doing video and audio streaming this year with UStream. It's pretty much the evolution of SAGEcasts and you are welcome to host a show. Simply email us what and when you want to do it. Right now the schedule is wide open.

I have a radio server of my own if anyone would prefer to use that I can make that available for the week, gives me something to do at least. Doing audio streaming alone with Ustream is pretty much pointless if you ask me.

That sounds like a good idea. I'll contact you on skype so we can work out the details.

Liking what I'm seeing so far. I unfortunately missed this past SAGE altogether... somehow.
Looking forward to the upcoming stuff you guys put forth this time around.

Sweet trailer! :D I've been waiting for the next Time Twisted demo for quite a long while.

I wish I could've done something this year, but, oh well. Hopefully I won't be so busy by the time the next one rolls around.
