Sonic Hacking Contest 2016 Begins on November 7th

Last month, the Sonic Amateur Games Expo hosted a wide variety of fan games developed by talented members of the community. Now, this month celebrates the tireless efforts of hackers for your favourite Sonic games with the 2016 edition of the Sonic Hacking Contest, kicking off this coming Monday, November 7th to Sunday, November 13th.

The annual ROM-hacking contest is brought to you by members of Sonic Stuff Research Group and Sonic Retro, with livestreams from SomecallmeJohnny, MegaGWolf, Redhotsonic, and more going on throughout the contest week. SSRG and Retro members can also download these and vote for their favourite for Community Trophies!
