A High Honor for Dreadknux

Hot on the heels of The Sonic Stadium’s 13th birthday yesterday, the website’s founder and the community at large has even more to be proud of.

Svend Joscelyne, known to most as Dreadknux, is featured in the UK magazine MCV as part of the publication’s 30 Under 30 series.  The feature showcases up and coming talent in the UK games industry as it relates to journalism, marketing, promotion, and other aspects.

MCV said of him

When he was just 15, Svend Joscelyne started his own Sonic fan site – Sonic Stadium – which is still running to this day with impressive visitor numbers. He also runs the Summer of Sonic event, which attracts hundreds of the community every single year. This year he even secured composers from the game who performed music live. He was the lead writer for Spong before his impressive community work attracted the attention of 2K Games in July this year, a stint that ended this month.

We congratulate Joscelyne on this magnificent achievement.
