While Sonic was celebrating his birthday with his friends, the Time Eater appeared in a hole in the sky, crashing the party, where it opened Time Holes that sucked up Sonic's friends and scattered them across time.

Later on, Sonic found himself in a white void, where he set out to save his friends and stop the Time Eater.[1]
