Sonic Hacking Contest Returns October 2022 | Fan Scene

Sunday, February 27th, 2022

The Sonic Hacking Contest will return for the week starting October 10th 2022. The annual Sonic the Hedgehog modding contest is now accepting submissions until September 4th 2022 and September 25th for expo entries.

Expo entries are not judged so if your project is earlier in its development cycle and you’d like to give a wider audience an opportunity to experience your early work for feedback then this is the category for you. Contest entries will receive criticism from the panel of judges and also be eligible to win trophies, of which there are a handful of new ones for 2022’s contest.

A full list of information about contest categories, trophies judging and how to submit a hack or mod to this year’s Sonic Hacking Contest can be found on the contest’s official website. As per usual, SEGADriven will be running video coverage of the event during contest week, so subscribe to our YouTube channel which already hosts a large quantity of video features on various Sonic hacks and mods like the one below:
