Overview

(Box art commission by SegaMew (@segamew))
Sonic RPG is an ambitious project to create a full-scale RPG based on Sonic SatAM. Inspired by classic RPGs like Super Mario RPG and Chrono Trigger, Sonic RPG strives to reignite the love of existing SatAM fans and shine a light through the often mishandled Sonic franchise.

Despite it being a crazy year, Sonic RPG is back!

A lot has changed since 2019, and we've picked up some brilliant new team members along the way. Although we had very ambitious goals for this year that we had to down scope, we think you'll enjoy this year's demo!

Let's take a look at what new features you'll see:
  • Stealth
    • Enemies will only chase you if they see you
    • Player can now hide behind objects to avoid being seen and peek at what's up ahead
      7364
  • More Dynamic Battles
    • Interesting enemy behaviors
    • New skills and strategies
    • Touch indicators are now always present
      7365
  • Sonic's Run
    • Balancing between speed, aesthetic, and control
      7366
  • Cinematic Run Levels
    • Stealth, puzzles, and battles, are all well and good , but sometimes you just want to feel that Sonic speed!
      7367
  • Antoine
    • Antoine is a playable character!
      7369
Bug fixes from last demo:
  • Key press doesn't always register
  • Subscreen menu looks like it pauses enemies, but it doesn't
  • Sonic sometimes moves very slowly (Caused by movement being frame-dependent rather than time-dependent)
  • Game closes on end of demo

SAGE 2020 Teaser

Updates

Gameplay Update (9/8/2020):
After feedback from several players, I've decided to nerf enemy damage. Swatbots and other opponents in battle, now do about half the damage they were doing before. I also made it harder for you to be seen by the Cambot in the intro map.

Mac Release:
If you have a mac, here is a release for that.

NOTE: the mac release is unpackaged due to some errors in osx when producing a .app file. All you should need to do to play the game is unzip and double-click the SonicRPG file.

Fixed Lag Bug in Sonic's Run (9/14/2020):
After watching a couple streams of other players I noticed that Sonic's run was not accounting for time properly, causing bugs when the game was under lag. I've fixed Sonic's run as of 9/14 to scale movement speed by time which should fix this issue.

My bro and I really enjoyed this one, great job! It's so nice to have another SatAM based game. They don't come around often.
 
LOVE's nice, but not really a stable platform - for example, the version Ubuntu comes with is incompatible with the version used to make this game.
 
I tried out the new demo and was blown away. The new intro, fixed battle system, and the addition of Atoine were PERFECTION. From this new demo is see unbelievable potential. Outstanding work.
