While we missed out on SAGE last year, it’s now finally time to take it out of its somewhat dusty box. SAGE Act 1 has started with some fangames and engines you may want to check out like Sonic Time Twisted, SonicGDK and Da Rock. Besides fangames, there are also live streams, an IRC chat and an Arts & Entertainment section.. This SAGE takes place from February 23rd to March 1st 2014, with a second act happening sometime later this year.

(Watches Remi) Success >:)
So stoked for Freedom Planet, it’s looking to be the best Platformer of 2014.
Seriously, I haven’t been this excited for something since I first unwrapped my Mega Drive, many Christmases ago.
I’m so looking forward to try some of those games for SAGE!
Really?! If I knew there was gonna be a SAGE this year, I’d have actually started working on the Sonic fangame I wanted to make last year O.o
