Post news RSS Tech Demo Extended Edition Released!

The Extended Edition of the Tech Demo of Ashura: Dark Reign has been released. You'll like this...

Posted by on

The new version of the Tech Demo has been released, featuring Sonic as the playable character, 2 acts with 6 different environments, multiple paths, special stages, secrets, original music, enemies and a boss to smash, all monitors, an Easter egg, and many code improvements like Sonic Physics v3, 2D classic gameplay, action cameras, level transitions... In short it's "only" a map, music and code update of the old Tech Demo.


The loading screens for each map are posted here which show you the improved beach, jungle and sky sanctuary zones.

Sky Sanctuary

A large video has been recorded in case you can't play the mod and want to see our progress. Go to our ModDB profile or watch here the short version:


This is my last news post as the lead coder of this mod which means that there are no coders for the project but I'll still help the team in various minor tasks. As always we need help in all areas of development: texture artists, modellers, animators, mappers, coders, sound effect creators...

Until next time... and have fun!

Other than afew familiar textures, meshes and that robot death noise, it doesn't look like UT2k4, but an official Sonic game. For that I must give you guys praise. It looks really great, keep it up. :)

Really great work. Well done.

But one thing bothered me. You should make Sonic lean forward more when he is running at high speeds. More speed more leaning. Of course you know better...

If you ask me it looks better than an official sonic game, guys are clearly long time fans and I hope them the best with finishing it.

I bet you didn't follow the installation instructions or your game doesn't meet the requirements.

That's one amazing gameplay demo. I couldn't take my eyes off it. Looks like M.C. Escher would have enjoyed your mod a lot.
