Get A Preview Of Some Of The 2020 Sonic Hacking Contest’s Entries In The New Trailer

By now, you’re probably aware of the 2020 Sonic Hacking Contest. Well, Contest Week is just 9 days away, so the team has released an official trailer to showcase just some of the entries you’ll be able to try out this year.

There will be a grand total of 70 playable entries this year. 40 are in the running for trophies in the Contest division, while 30 can be found in the Expo division. The games range from hacks of the original classic Sonic trilogy on the Genesis/Mega Drive to mods of more recent titles such as Sonic Lost World, Sonic Mania, and Sonic Forces. You can see the full list of entries here.

Starting October 26th, Contest Week gets underway and you will be able to play all the entries yourself. Meanwhile, various personalities will team up with the Sonic Hacking Contest team to live stream the entries and produce video content for you all to enjoy.

One of those personalities will be, well, us! If you haven’t heard the news yet, we will be covering the Sonic Hacking Contest once again this year, but it’ll be bigger than ever before. Not only will we be covering the entries in articles we’ll be posting throughout the week, but we will be live streaming the entries ourselves on our brand new Twitch channel!

Keep an eye out for the exact times coming very soon, and make sure to follow our stream channel right here to be notified when we’re streaming, as there will not be a day that goes by during Contest Week where we’re not doing that. We’ve got plenty of content planned for the event, so stay tuned!
