Sonic Epoch Canned

Sonic Epoch Canned

by January 8, 2003

If you look at sonicepoch.com, it looks like all is cancelled for the long developed and delayed Sonic Epoch. tssz|news has learned that the decision was mutual among the developers of the project, past and present. More specifically, according to Hedgesmfg, the primary reason for the demise was based on the vision of Epoch’s original developer, Rob:

I can’t say I entirely lost interest..I loved the game, I was dead determined about seeing it finished for ages. But the fact remains that in an odd sense, Rob is really the only one capable of finishing it. Part of it was the way he did the cutscenes, part of it was the way he scripted, part of it, I just don’t know…it just felt…dead…as soon as he left it..no matter how much I wanted to finish it. That, and we simply don’t really have enough staff to do it either. Rob did the engine, the objects, most of the graphics, and scripting. We’d need to find decent replacements for all of those…

So, one final time, it’s good-bye for the very promising project that was Sonic Epoch.
