October 15th through October 22nd, 2016 S A G E X P O . O R G Da Update (10/8/16) 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. First off, two hours leading up to the opening of the SAGE 2016 site we will be hosting a livestream of as many SAGE games as we can play. Join us at our YouTube channel, at 10:00 pm central, to see all the games you'll be able to play at this year's expo. I don't want to say all, because we're currently sitting at over 55 entries to SAGE and counting! We will be going past the SAGE launch at midnight and plan to stream until at least 1:00 am. “Wait, still getting entries? But it's past the deadline!!” Yeah, we aren't hard asses. Listen up, if you were unable to make the deadline for any reason, you can still submit to SAGE up to the 14th. Please note that any entry or update past the 9th is not guaranteed to get a booth at SAGE, but we will do our best to accommodate. The schedule for livestream events is also available. As you can see… there's not much on it! If you'd like to host a livestream during the week, please send us an email with your stream URL, name, description of your stream, and time slot. Keep in mind that time slots are limited to two hours currently for non-staff events and you must have prior streaming knowledge. Also please note that scheduling can change at the staff's discretion, but we will do our best to notify you in advance should this occur. Otherwise, free time will be available throughout the week if you'd like to stream then! Finally… RAGE. Is it coming back? What's the theme? Is there another $50 gift card to win??? Well friends, it might be a good idea to tune in on Friday to the livestream to get the answers to those questions… Old SAGE Information archived below Spoiler What is SAGE? We've got a whole dang page on the Wiki with SAGE's history here! 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! Submission Guidelines Game entries must be submitted to [email protected] Each game entry must have the following: A title/logo to display for it's respective game, PNG format, at least 500 x 500. A description of what your game submission is all about, including any links to soundtracks, websites, game credits, or miscellaneous information about your entry. A zip file containing your game. All game entries must be submitted by October 7th. If your game will not be finished before that time, it will not be featured in the event. ROM Hacks are allowed, given they significantly change something about the games they are based on. Personal webpages that link outside of SAGE, or"booths," are not a part of this year's event. However, each game will have it's own "booth" on the main SAGE website. Your submission must be a complete demonstration or full release of your game project. If you have multiple game projects to submit, please follow the submission guidelines for each project. If you have an engine to demonstrate, it will be put under a different category differing from regular game submissions. Engines must follow the same guidelines as stated above. Streaming Guidelines To reserve your time for streaming, please send an e-mail to [email protected] You MUST have prior streaming experience. If you can not present a stable stream, you will be taken off-air, and your time slot will be turned into free time. Each stream entry must have the following: A title or logo to display for your show, PNG format, at least 500 x 500. The name of your stream. The time at which you would like to broadcast your stream. What content your stream will involve. A link to your current stream page. Your stream will be mirrored via the main SAGE stream. Stream times are first come, first served. Streams will be limited to 2 hours per streamer. Free-time streams and unscheduled streams are at the discretion of the SAGE staff. We will do our best to work with and around everyone's schedules. Keep in mind we will have plans in the beginning and end of SAGE, but the rest of the slots will go quick. Make sure to get your submission in as soon as possible!
