Emerald Ties is an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog fan game that features classic gameplay with a modern aesthetic. Formerly known as Emerald Ties: Crossing Fates, the project has been in development on and off beginning in 2004. Since then, the game has undergone numerous changes and revisions, all the while never deviating from the original goal: to provide players with a fresh take on the tried-and-true gameplay of the original Sonic trilogy.
SAGE 2016 marks the first instance of the project running on the Sonic Worlds engine. Alongside the features and physics inherent to the Sonic Worlds engine, the game includes:
- Original and highly customized graphics
- An assortment of brand new zones, each with a unique set of enemies
- Original tracks and compositions
- Leaderboards for time attack and scores (to be added in the future)
Because the game was only recently ported to Sonic Worlds, this demo acts as a short content tease for the project to come. Please enjoy one act each of two familiar levels and one new one for SAGE 2016.
