Origin of Sonic Epoch
FUS - Epoch Era
Sonic EpochWelcome to the only official website for Sonic Epoch, an old Sonic fangame that was made during a time when Sonic on the Internet was at the peak of its popularity and the Saturday morning Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon (popularly known as SatAM) was still relatively recently cancelled on a cliffhangar. The layout from this website has a dated look and is in fact deliberately taken from an old version of Fans United for SatAM for the sake of being retro and respecting the timeframe of Epoch's origin which is now over 10 years ago.
Sonic Epoch features SatAM Sonic in a time travel adventure as he is blasted 10 years into the future; a dark future where Dr. Robotnik has essentially won, and the very few remaining Knothole Freedom Fighters are barely clinging to life. Sonic arrives to reinvigorate the world and perhaps still be able to fight back the evil Doctor and hopefully somehow get back to his own time.
Epoch existed in two editions on two platforms; originally for DOS (later Windows) and Gameboy Advance (not as an official product of course!) The DOS/Windows one was "cancelled" after having a good deal of it completed. The GBA version was a revival which attempted to reuse as much as it could from its previous incarnation and finish the job. While the GBA version is "finished", it was a rush job, more for the sake of filling the gap of the previous version's incomplete status, and did not completely honor all aspects of the original story. In any case, click here for the beginning of a "Let's Play" video where someone played through the game.
