Hero has released a playable demo of his upcoming 3D Sonic game in Unity Engine, Sonic – Project Hero. Sonic – Project Hero aims to launch Sonic, Tails & Knuckles into, simply, a fun three dimensional adventure through various locales, to stop Dr. Eggman’s new scheme.
The game aims to introduce new and unique mechanics and mix-n’-match existing ones from the Sonic series, in order to create a fresh experience.
Do note that this demo is a prototype version of the game. As such, you should all temper your expectations. Still, the demo features all of the core gameplay elements. Therefore, it will at least give you an idea of what Hero aims to achieve.
In the demo, you can assume the role of Sonic, Tails or Knuckles. You can also explore an environment, collect rings and fight some enemies.
Lastly, Hero released a new video for the demo of Sonic – Project Hero. This video is ideal for those that don’t want to download the demo, but are still interested in the project.
