    It's time to play the games!


    The Sonic Hacking Contest is an annual event where people can submit their hacks and have them judged where they could win Trophies based on their hack. Since 2011, we have been partnering up with SAGE to bring you a Contest Week where you can download the entries submitted to the contest. We also have Community Trophies, a small selection of trophies that are voted by you, the public! By holding this week, we are allowing the community to participate in an event which has been running for many years.


    This year, all available hacks will be on offer from the SSRG Repository, where you will be able to download a hack, give a rating and if you want to, leave a comment. Guest posting has been enabled for this section of the Repository as of this post but it is subject to change.


    Once you have played the hacks, you can vote for the Community Trophies which are trophies voted by the public. There are six Trophies for you to vote on:


    Hidden Palace Community Trophy


    Best hack submitted overall.


    Big Community Trophy


    Worst hack submitted overall.


    Windy Valley Community Trophy


    Best art hack submitted.


    D.A. Garden Community Trophy


    Best music hack submitted.


    Lava Reef Community Trophy


    Best level layout hack submitted.


    11000101 Community Trophy


    Best technical hack submitted.


    Hopefully we will have the rest of the website up later, including the Trophy Voting polls. For now, just download the hacks, give them a play and let us know what you think!


    Hack creators are welcome to post a thread on their hack on the forums, and should do it in the Hacking Contest forum. If you have an existing Showroom thread, that is fine by us.


    The results will be streamed LIVE at SAGE on Sunday. We'll let you know more soon. There will also be times on SAGE where the public hacks will be streamed, so you might want to keep an eye on that.


    Also on SAGE will be Episode 3 of the SSRG Podcast, LIVE on Thursday at 8PM UK time. Be sure to be there for these events, and all of SAGE itself!
