Summer Of Sonic 2016 Panel: The History of Summer Of Sonic

From SOS 2016, LMC’s Kevin Eva (ArchangelUK/AAUK) is joined by The Sonic Stadium’s Svend Joscelyne (Dreadknux) and Adam Tuff (T-Bird) for a panel where they discuss the story behind Summer of Sonic.

Presented in its entirety, the panel – previously only viewable to those in attendance at the “& Knuckles” stage area – dips into the unknown. Even to some items not known to Svend and Adam! So how did SOS come to be? What has Shadow The Hedgehog got to do with it? How did the three meet in the first place? How did Kevin end up at SEGA? How did Adam doom the Earth? Which guest underwent a radical metamorphosis thanks to SOS? And what rather awkward thing did Svend say to Richard Jacques?

From humble beginnings to triumph over adversary here’s all (well, a chunk of it at least) of the story behind one of the most successful publisher/fandom partnerships in video game history.
