Those Without SOS Tickets May Have Another Option

Two days before the Summer of Sonic event is held in the south of Britain, Sumo Digital’s Steve Lycett will be on hand in the Yorks to talk about Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.

It’s part of the Games Britannia video game festival, which in of itself is staged as part of a larger children’s fest in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.  Organizers describe the event as a way to see the franchise from concept to completion–and maybe a look beyond at the next chapter, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed:

Sumo Digital have worked with Sega for over 9 years now across a series of titles, and arguably know more about Sega’s considerable back catalogue than Sega themselves.

An intimate account of how this groundbreaking title was taking from drawing board to console game.

Find out what it is REALLY like to make a videogame or maybe more about the upcoming sequel “ Sega & All-Stars Racing: Transformed!”

The ‘Transformed’ in the title refers to the vehicles, which can transform between driving, boating and flying, and the tracks, which transform in various ways to accommodate the different surfaces. SUMO have included a wide range of tracks & characters drawn from across Sega’s history.

If you don’t have a ticket to SOS, this may be a decent alternative.  The event will take place as part of Games Britannia in Rotherham on Thursday, July 5th at 10AM local time.  Tickets are free, and you can register for them at this link.
