Sega Streaming Theater Sonic Edition[note 1] is a video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series developed and published by Sega. The game was first revealed during the Sonic Station Live! stream in 24 June 2021.[2][3] Sega distributed the limited amount of the game for internet streamers and VTubers who participated in social media campaign events and as such, the game is not available for the general audience. Each streamer has played Sega Streaming Theater Sonic Edition live via YouTube Live feature, while registered YouTube users and Facebook/Twitter followers can participate the game interactively by sending comments to the stream as well utilizing additional keywords to affect the streamer's gameplay.

As of 2022, Sega Streaming Theater Sonic Edition has been present in two occacions as part of social media campaign events during the franchise's anniversary celebrations in the Asian market. The first campaign event took place from 24 June 2021, to 30 June 2021 and it was distributed to Japanese Vtubers/streamers.[1] The second campaign happened in June 2022 with South Korean, Chinese, and Taiwanese streamers/Vtubers participating the event.[4][5][6]

With majority of sprites taken straight from the original Sonic the Hedgehog and its 2013 remaster, the music in the game is recycled from the Japanese soundtrack of Sonic the Hedgehog CD.

Gameplay[]

Sega Streaming Theater Sonic Edition is a side-scrolling platforming game with majority of gameplay elements lifted from mainline Sonic the Hedgehog games for the Sega Mega Drive. The game's main objective involves collecting required amount of Rings from each Zone's Act in two minutes. The player takes control of Sonic the Hedgehog, whose moveset in this game consists of Spin Jump, Spin Attack and Spin Dash. Also, when Sonic reaches to his maximum running speed, he will perform the Super Peel Out, but it isn't accessible as a separate move to be activated by the player. The game has autosave feature as it is possible to continue the game from the previous Act where the player last left by choosing the "Continue" option in the title screen. The game requires Sonic to move right and the camera stops scrolling, if the player attempts to backtrack in the Act.

The main element of the game involves of registered YouTube users following the stream and social media followers in Facebook/Twitter, being able to interact real-time during the gameplay. Prior booting up the game each time, the player has to insert the YouTube Live URL address in order to recognise YouTube comments during the stream.[7] The comment feature in the game is based on the danmaku subtitle system: posting a comment during the live stream will allow said written text to be presented on the screen, scrolling horizontally accross the screen from right to left at the medium speed while being synchronized to the video timeline. Sonic can jump and move on them while running above the Zone's terrain. Social media followers in the stream can provide extra amount of content to the gameplay by posting certain keywords, which caused to summon more Rings, Item Box power-ups, enemies, obstacles or change the level layout of the Zone slightly. Based on the social media user's actions, these keyword commands can be proven either useful or sheer annoyance for the player. Keywords are also recognized among sentences and it is possible for social media followers to summon two objects/obstacles at once in one comment by using ruby characters.

During the live broadcast, if the follower writes a post on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtag #RunSonic (#走れソニック?) and the hashtag specified by the broadcaster, it will be reflected in the game. Each time the hashtag is posted ten times, the player receives Time Bonus of 10 extra seconds on the timer while the requirement for reaching the next time extension increases with ten extra tweets. When the hastag has become trending topic in the social media platform after achieiving enough of tweets during the stream, the game announces this each time during the gameplay. Emojis are also reconized while sending comments to the game. The game also allows to post YouTube's Super Chat comments with money donations dedicated to the streamer, as said posts will be displayed with additional horizontal bars and they scroll through the screen slower compared to regular comments. The comment and keyword features are functional during the main gameplay of the game and they will be automatically disabled in the title screen and the Secret menu.

The Fever mode of the game.

Rings are also found sporadically in each Act, but because of high requirement, the player cannot complete the Act by regular means without comment and keyword features. The game suggests to keep moving forward, as passing through 400, 800 and 1200 meters in the Act will make the player enter the Fever mode for about ten seconds, where large chunks of Rings appear floating in the mid-air for Sonic to be collected. Occacionally, a warning sign appears to alarm about upcoming, long floors of Spikes. The player can leap over them by using long, scrolling comments as moving platforms. Using this method, the player can also cross bottomless pits, climb over large chunk of the steep level layout or reach to the top of loops.

Getting hit by Badnik or obstacle would have make the player lose between eight and sixteen Rings as well ten seconds from the timer. Falling into a bottomless pit or getting hit by enemy/obstacle without having any Rings will warp Sonic to a nearby section from the place where the player has previously lost. When the timer reaches one minute in each third Act, Dr. Eggman appears piloting his Egg Mobile, who begins hovering back and forth above the Zone's terrain while dropping Badniks on the player's way in attempt to interupt the gameplay. Scoring a hit on him via Spin Jump or Spin Attack will make him hover slightly upwards and proceed his pattern. If the player manages to deliever three hits, Eggman will drop huge amount of Rings to the ground and flies away as the game continues normally up until the time runs out. When this happens and the player has managed to collect required amount of Rings, the game will proceed into the next Act. If done otherwise, the game will then give the player a choice to retry the Act or return back to the title screen. When the player clears all three Zones, the game transitions to Green Hill Zone with the player receiving congratulations for completing the game. The game then progresses back to the title screen.

Keywords[]

Alongside regular comment posts during YouTube live streams, registered YouTube viewers could also post unique keywords (written as key words (キーワード?) in-game) to interactively affect the gameplay. These posts are displayed as yellow text, as the game accepted these keywords in both kanji/Hangul and Latin writing form when written accurately. Using them will summon different objects, obstacles or enemies on the scrolling text.

Keyword Description
Japanese Traditional Chinese Korean English
リング Ring Summons a single Ring to the Zone.
無敵 無敵 무적 Invincible Summons an Item Box containing an Invincible power-up. Using the power-up will temporarily make Sonic invulnerable to enemies, Spikes and fireballs for ten seconds.

敵人 Enemy One of three Badniks will be summoned: Moto Bug, Buzz Bomber or Spikes. Defeating a Badnik releases an Animal and grants ten extra Rings.
スプリング 彈簧 스프링 Spring Summons a red Spring to the Zone. Based on the placement on the Zone's layout, Springs on slopes would be pointing diagonally, as it determits the direction where they bounced the player.

At the beginning of the game, all secret keywords have to be unlocked by normally proceeding through the game with hints on the left providing short descriptions or cryptic guesses about unlockable keywords. Each streamer's additional secret words can also be found here. Up right corner shows the progress of unlocking all secret keywords and hitting "ENTER or START" button by pressing the ENTER on keyboard or computer mouse would have transition the player back to the title screen or start the game.

Trivia[]

  • Usual glitch in the game's audio occurs when time runs out while the player has Invincible or Super form. Instead of having silence when results came in, the regular background music of the Zone starts playing.
  • When the Item Box or Spring lands below Sonic while running at one pace, it will permanently attach to him until the player turns to the opposite direction or manages to leap through the object in the mid-air.
  • This is one of only Sonic the Hedgehog titles to have Labyrinth Zone and Scrap Brain Zone featuring loops; 30 years after the release of the original game.
