Sonic Jump Fever Crowd Event and Sonic Dash Extreme at Summer of Sonic!

Hi everyone! We have a couple of special follow-up announcements related to our awesome guests at Hardlight today.



Hardlight’s producer of Sonic Jump Fever, James Booth, will hit the stage to excite the Summer of Sonic Crowd and show you something really cool. To see what it is, you’re going to have to do three things:

  1. Make sure you install ‘Sonic Jump Fever’ onto your iOS or Android mobile device. Bring this device with you to Summer of Sonic.
  2. Play and complete the tutorial section of ‘Sonic Jump Fever’ before you attend Summer of Sonic.
  3. When Hardlight come on stage at Summer of Sonic, the crowd will need to open up the ‘Sonic Jump Fever’ app and work together to JUMP at the same time! This will then kick off a competition where the winner will get exclusive SEGA goodies!

Be sure to come prepared!



Not only will Hardlight be bringing two of their star producers, but they will also be bringing with them a Sonic Dash Extreme arcade pod, which will be available for visitors to play. Try and beat each other’s high score – but form an orderly line and play nice with others!

Not long to go now until the big day! See you there!

Guest Announcement: Hardlight Studios


You thought we had run out of guests to announce, right? Well, we’re not done yet! We’re excited to reveal two new special guests for Summer of Sonic 2016, and you might know them for their hard work behind some of the apps you may have sitting in your mobile device.

Introducing Hardlight Studios, the UK-based developer that brought you Sonic Jump, Sonic Dash and Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom. Hardlight Studios is celebrating a huge milestone this year – 200 Million Downloads for Sonic Dash – and will be celebrating at SoS with a surprise on stage!

You will also get a chance to meet and greet with James Booth, the producer of Sonic Dash and Sonic Jump Fever, and Ruby Urlings, the producer of Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, at a dedicated table area within the show floor. There will be exclusive Sonic Dash posters available, specially printed for Summer of Sonic, that James and Ruby will be able to sign for you too.

James and Ruby are also huge Sonic fans, just like us, so feel free to chat to them about their favourite games (besides their own, of course). We look forward to hosting Hardlight at Summer of Sonic 2016!
