Announcing the Sonic Forces Live Playthrough

Announcing the Sonic Forces Live Playthrough

by November 8, 2017 4 comments

In honor of the release of the newest 3D Sonic game, we’re proud to announce what we hope to be one of our biggest and most ambitious livestream events yet! This coming Sunday, we’ll be airing the Sonic Forces Live Playthrough, wherein Lou will play through the entirely of Sonic Forces – from opening cutscene to credits – live on stream, all in one go, without ever having played the game before. If nothing else, tune in for his immediate (and probably very frustrated) reactions.

We’ll also be giving away two very special pieces of swag – a Mania manual signed by Aaron Webber, and a copy of Tyson Hesse’s art from the NYCC Sonic/IDW panel signed by Webber, Mike Cisneros from SEGA, Stephen Scott from IDW PR, and Joe Hughes, the new Sonic comic editor! We wanted to do something really special with these exclusive prizes, and so we’ve teamed up with Extra Life to make this stream a charity event benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital initiative. In order to be eligible for the giveaways, we ask that you donate to Extra Life through our personalized donation page anytime between now and Sunday night, and two winners will be selected at random at the conclusion of the stream. We really want this to be a big stream that puts a positive spotlight on the game and the work Extra Life does to benefit sick children all over the country, so we’d appreciate anything you can do to get the word out about this!

Some of this fancy swag could be yours!

    Sounds happening, but this is a bit soon. I’ve just started playing the game, and I like to have beaten a game I really want to play before I see someone play it.

    Well, that’s just me.

    I wish someone can do a custom avatar in Sonic Forces that’s a knock off of Sally Acorn of Sonic Sat AM and Archie Sonic fame (I still hope Sally Acorn is part of IDW Sonic starting in April 2018).

      The modders already are investigating that. It may, in fact, be possible to mod in any character into the Avatar creator. We could have the entire Sonic cast plus all the Generations and Forces cast as playable characters as well as all old Generations character mods like Professor Pickle, Luigi and Elsa from Frozen.
