Have you ever wondered what would happen if the characters from Sonic the Hedgehog meshed with the visuals of Jet Set Radio? If so, then look no further than the fan-made demo Sonic Storm!
Sonic Storm is a fan-made game currently in development by Azura Hardware. The playable demo offers a fully 3D open-world level to explore. Players can utilize the Blue Blur’s speed and moves in the world filled with rails, jumps, shortcuts and secrets. In addition, the developers state they took heavy inspiration to Dreamcast gem Jet Set Radio.
It’s unique in the sense that the gameplay style isn’t really derived from any existing Sonic game. It plays closest to Jet Set Radio with way tighter controls and without the slipping about.Azura Hardware
In the game’s official Discord server, Azura Hardware states the story centers around Sonic and Shadow putting their differences aside to take down Dr. Robotnik. Sonic Storm features six characters: Sonic, Rouge, Tails, Robotnik and Metal Sonic. According to the developers, the other characters from Sonic lore (with the exception of Amy) are not cannon to their timeline. In addition, the developers add that they will complete all the voice acting and music themselves.
Fans who wish to play the demo version of Sonic Storm can either download the time trial Testfire or the Dual Story demo. Additionally, you can also learn more about the game by watching this short video that highlights both demos.
As we eagerly await the Blue Blur’s next official installment in Sonic Frontiers, the unique style of Sonic Storm should satiate the adrenaline rush fans crave. What do you think about Azura Hardware’s fan-made Sonic game? Let us know in the comments!
