The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog - Launch Trailer
- Xuất bản 30 Th03, 2023
- The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog is available RIGHT NOW on Steam for FREE!
It's Amy Rose's birthday and she's hosting a murder mystery party on the Mirage Express! When Sonic the Hedgehog becomes the game's victim, everyone is off to get to the bottom of things. However, something feels a bit off - is this really an innocent game or is something more sinister afoot?
Interrogate some of your favorite characters from the Sonic series as you figure out what happened to Sonic. Play as a new character who is starting their first day working on the Mirage Express, and meet the kind Conductor who is finally retiring from his long run with the train!
This project has been a labor of love from the Sonic Social team and a host of amazingly talented people who are just as passionate about Sonic as we are. Thank you so much for being a part of this with us, and we hope you all enjoy!
Happy April Fool's Day (observed)!

If Sonic Team's idea of an April Fool's prank is an entirely unannounced free game made by fans, for fans, then April Fools might just be my new favorite holiday
It has to be April Fool's gag.
@Victor Gonzalez Check the description
@Victor Gonzalez nope it's legit on steam
...but it's still march.
@Josh Coy Not in Japan it aint.
I thoroughly enjoyed this game! It was such a pleasant surprise! The characters haven't felt this genuine in so long. I would love to see more of these!
I just finished it myself as I'm typing this. I absolutely agree. It was a lot of fun!
Read the Bible.
@Repent of your sins and believe the Gospel ofJesus no
Would be kinda cool if you made an animation for some scenes lol
@Repent of your sins and believe the Gospel ofJesus I'm a Laveyan Satanist sooo...no.
You know despite being an April Fools joke, you got to admit that the fact that the Sonic team literally let an actual fan game to be announced might possibly the smartest move anyone has ever done.
I mean Mania is a fan game that was given the Sega blessing and assistance. This is just another!
Street Fighter x Mega Man
Funny how it has more of a Sega vibe than anything Sega has put out recently
I am certainly more interested in playing a Sonic game, now!
Repent to Jesus Christ “They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!””
John 12:13 NIV
WHY WAS THIS FREE. I WOULD HAVE PAID FOR THIS!! 😭❤ I know this was just a little April fools joke but man, what a great little experience. The characters felt more like themselves than they have in a long time, the art was adorable, and the music slapped so hard. I would genuinely love to see more visual novel style works like this going forward!
So you dont like when you dont have to spend your money on something, nice
This is a criminally good April Fool's joke. The art here is fantastic. Really loving all the love being poured into Sonic lately!
This game got me smiling all around... The jokes, the references, the art, the soundtrack... THIS IS AMAZING
The pose for Sonic and the “he’s dead” had me laughing for 3 minutes 💀
Family guy death pose
@QuestionableHerooh my god it is
“Sonic has passed”
family guy death pose
@Jerin _Dd Vinny reference detected
I just played it, absolutely fantastic game. Please, keep it on the Steam store forever. Don't let this just be a one-day April Fool's thing.
It's still there. It's there permanently
@Kierrific thank god. Everone needs to enjoy this masterpiece of gaming.
@Lieng Andriod of course they do
Yall honestly can just release more of this and people would love it.
Sonic visual novel story telling, rpgs, add chao garden.
Despite being a april fools game, this have a lot of love and effort put into it! The art is very charming, reminds me of the sonic idw comics, and i really apreciate that we got the rest of the cast interact more with eachother! Amazing work sega!
All they have to do now is to release this game on consoles
Just came back from playing the game, I'm very satisfied, the amount of work put into this is crazy! Not only the art, but also the theme of a mystery was very fun to see. I really love the plot twists through the entire gameplay, but also connections to the orginal game (you'll know what I mean when you play the game). If this is how every April Fools would look like in SEGA, i want to have April Fools everyday!
The bots are insane 💀💀
I c this one on like every bigger game channel and it always has a different porn pic
10/10 the gameplay is very fun, the story is intriguing, consisting of emotional and funny parts, perfectly using themes and tones at the correct time. While the game is short, (around an hour or so) it’s the best hour I’ve spent in my life.
The fact that he's in the family guy death pose too is actually hilarious. Good job Sega this is absolutely hilarious I love this.
I did not realize this till u said this. Had me weak 😂
Dude when I saw he was in the family guy dead pose, I absolutely cackled out loud. That was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while
From the official Sonic VNclip channel… absolutely cracked
THEY KNOW THE MEMES

THEY KNOW THE MEMES
Would you guys consider making more point and click Sonic titles like this? I think it’s really charming, and could be a pretty good way to fill in time between major releases. Not to mention the art is pretty awesome.
This is an amazing game. Honestly it is almost a crime that it is free, because no, it is _not_ a prank, it's a full, maybe five-hour point and click adventure full of amazing humor, clever thinking, and an actually pretty decent narrative
actually a really good visual novel style mystery solving game, wouldn't mind there being another one
This was such an unexpected but amazing treat!
For once, I am welcoming April Fool's this year. Thank you guys so much for this experience!
No joke, I'd totally want to play more stuff like this set in the Sonic canon 🤣 They mentioned escape rooms in the game, so that'd be a neat follow up.
An official Sonic visual novel with a who-done-it plot... I love this franchise.
I thought this was a joke before April 1 but it’s a real game lol
Nice heart 👀
Yamaha dead pose
We all do, that's why we put up with stuff like Sonic Forces from time to time.
@Megamemes first yamcha now my blue boy 😢
Aaaaah just finished my playthrough and it was amazing!!!! the characters, the humor, everything was on point! kudos to everyone who made this game and thank you for the “prank”!!!
I would absolutely love to see more one-off character driven games like this in the future. Thank you for this lovely surprise.
The best thing about surprise games like this is that there are no expectations, so people will be pleasantly surprised no matter what.
This game was absolutely fantastic! I was so happy to see Shadow so well written again! Hope we get more VN stuff like this in the future.
Unironically, this is GOTY material for me. As a fan of both Ace Attorney and Danganronpa, this was right up my alley! A simple and charming experience that was worth it
For an April Fools game, they went hard for the artstyle. It's actually very pleasing to look at.
Also, Family Guy death pose.
Its real and free
April fools is tomorrow.
@GeoKnuckles it's today here in new zealand where i live so there you go
Wait a second. IT’S MARCH 31ST!?!?
@GeoKnuckles SEGA is Japanese Company and it's already 1st April there
Genuinely beautiful and fun game, was a pleasant surprise when expecting an april fools prank! The writing gives very A Hat in Time vibes, which is one of the highest compliments I can bestow... more of this please sega :)
I really enjoyed playing the game! It was short and simple but a lot of fun. The art was amazing, and I loved how the characters interacted. Genuinely the best April fools game everyone did a great job, and the character’s personality portrayed was great
It has so much heart and charm !!! I'd love more of little side games like these in between the big ones as we go into the future ^^
I hope this opens up new opportunities for more sonic visual novels, as there are so many possibilities for these characters
I really enjoyed this small game. They should make more of these in the future. Just characters interacting with each other in various situations.
I don’t care what anyone says or even if the game is bad. THIS is the game that brought Knuckles’ cowboy hat back into the canon, and I will forever be grateful for it
Didn't a mobile game do that like two years ago?
scrapnik island and sonic speed battle brought it back into the canon already
@The Next Take Also Sonic Dash and the Archie Boom Comics going by your logic but the IDW comics aren't confirmed canon and Speed Battle has no story. Technically this game isn't confirmed canon either but it's the first in a long time to be featured in a major story.
@BlueKthe idw comics were confirmed canon along with most other sonic media a while ago. While tbf you are right about the mobile games not being canon
You'll be pleased to know that the game is good
Imagine if they made more of these visual novel games for the Sonic series! Like the characters could be camping, or playing D&D, or escape rooms!! ❤
Props to you guys for the game
It was lovely all the way through
From the story, to music, to characters and the artstyle it was just all so great
Wish i could do more to show how much i apreciate it, but i guess this is all i can do
This is the best - it was not a joke at the fan’s expense, it was something silly and made with love and let us be in on the joke. Awesome fun time!!!
I just beat this game, and it was honestly one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had playing a Sonic game in a long time. Seriously SEGA, I hope you let the team who made this game make more Sonic content in the future. It was so much fun!
We want more games like this!! They tell a great story and are super fun!
This gives me Storybook series vibes and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!! Great job to the social team!
Played through the game last night. Masterpiece from the fans for the fans
Finally, was wondering when you guys would start pumping out games. Yours works are always top notch.
I really hope we get more fun spin offs like this, this has to be one of my favorite games of the year, the writing, the art, everything is so good
It was amazing, I enjoyed every second and had a lot of fun, it actually made me feel really happy. I loved the story and the characters' writing. We need more of this kind of spin offs please!
SEGA is just on the rise. So many wins, and their communication with their fans is impeccable. Good stuff!
Tbh because Sega listens to their community's wishes, I think this is why Sega does what Nintendon't
@BloxyWaterGamer that's a dead meme
@Sonixx the only thing dying is Nintendo’s sales. Without Pokémon, Nintendo would’ve been absorbed by Sega decades ago.
Sega does what nintendont
THIS IS AWESOME! You guys did an amazing job putting all of this together! I'm so happy that it's free to play and I love the style of it all! I kept searching through the trash xd that part was fun aswell. YOU DID GREAT 10/10! (ALSO THANK YOU FOR PUTTING METAL AT THE END! I really appreciated that!)
I opened up VNclip and saw the title… immediate panic and then I watch the trailer and am SUPER EXCITED to play this! I’m all for a murder mystery novel-esque game!!!
This needs to go into the Hall of Fame of "This is how you do April Fool's jokes RIGHT" !!
What a genuinely charming thing to do, Sega. I really love this, thank you! ❤
Love it. Makes me want an actual game like this to distract me from the pain of the last Ace Attorney game being in 2016.
This game is really enjoyable! I loved all the characters and I especially love the art in this game! Great job 👍
Well done to everyone on the team. A fun Sonic visual novel, for free, out of nowhere? Sonic Frontiers may have sparked hope in me, but this game just seals the fact that this is a great time to be a Sonic enjoyer. Even my younger brother loves it!
I wish more game companies did things like this.
Thank you so much for all your hard work. Wasn't a fan of Sonic, but this really surprised me and enjoyed it.
just played this, 8.5/10. the art was amazing, the music fit rlly well, and if ur looking for a cool short-ish game that still has some difficult gameplay, this is definitely worth a try!
making an actual game as part of the joke is a power move, thank you sega
Cracking up rn😂😂😂😂
SEGA is really getting better at doing things the fans actually like!
It's nice to see that Sonic Team used the feedback they've received to good effect.
A murder mystery VN. Not what I expected from SEGA, but a golden gem nonetheless.
A game so simple yet so well made ❤
As Death once said, "I came for an arrogant little legend, who thought he was immortal", and then he took Sonic.
Eggman: I’ve been called a lot of things, but never Death. I like it! That’s MY Emerald!
Puss in boots reference eh
UNDERRATED COMMENT 😂
i wonder if Death in Sonic wouldn't be something worse then (And here spoilers for Puss in Boots 2, but for real, good luck avoiding this one especially)
This game was definitely a masterpiece it definitely deserves an s tier I recently just played the whole game from beginning to end it's an amazing game I loved the story writing too good job sega really great work on the game
Very good game, the special stages were very good and at a very easy level for someone who has played a lot of sonic games (like me)
I don't know how, but the character that represents the player was 100% like me (his personality and mine are identical) which made the gameplay much better
I loved it, congrats to the developers!
I played the game! It was so cool and would definitely play it again! 10/10 game, hoping to see more!
This game was amazing, best April Fools surprise ever, absolutely made my day
We love this. This is what we want. More please.
This has to be one of the most high-effort April Fools' Day jokes out there. You guys made an entire visual novel murder mystery based on sonic AS A JOKE? Big respect there, Sega. Big respect. Thank you.
And funnily enough, it's a real game
This reminded me of when Blizzard made an Overwatch dating sim for Valentine's day lol
Plot twist it actually comes out in a few hours
bug fables did the same
@canary 002 plotter twist. Its out now.
The game is fricken awesome and hilarious. The Ace Attorney vibes are real ❤
This game was super fun and so charming! The character designs were super cute.
AMAZING! 😍 This revived my love for visual novels.
This actually looks genuinely very fun!
It's weird I've always wanted to see this type of sonic game and I really did not think it would be done at all anytime soon :)) good job keep it up!
I love how they’re self aware and want to continue to make the gaming franchise better
I have guilty pleasure of Shadow the Hedgehog 2005 game
@Kobbern Did you read the comment? When did it say ANYTHING about Shadow the Hedgehog 2005
@Abner’s Universe He just needed to confess his sins
@Антон Трубачеев dark sins indeed
Haha, I never even considered it from that angle.
The transition from Green Hill Zone to Death Egg Zone was smooth.
The art of this looks amazing!! And I like how it takes somewhat of a darker tone. 😶❤️🌸
I just finished the game and i should say. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES IVE EVER PLAYED. I also liked the fact that the games plot is almost the same with Glass Onion. Thank you SEGA for giving us a fun experience in April Fools.
Even after playing this game, I love just watching this trailer. it's perfect.
I just finished and this was truly enjoyable. Love it!
You know what? I’m just gonna go ahead and give this an _immediate_ *10/10* rating. 🎖
don’t forget to give it a positive review
@Simon41 20 out of 20 is the same rating as 10/10
@Orson Zedd shuddup
Incredible art direction, hope they actually do more with this and oh yeah THE MUSIC HOLY COE
This game had no right to be as good as it was. Enjoyed my time playing it and would love to see more crazy spinoffs like this. Turns out Sonic meets Phoenix Wright is a fun direction.
10/10 soooo fantastic . I loeve seeing this much love put in a game , a real delight for fans
The best part about this other than its real and not just April's Fools joke is that its real and its a fan game that's actually pretty good!
Loved the art style of this Visual Novel Sonic fan game, its cute and gorgeous!
You DID NOT pose Sonic in the Family Guy stock death pose. That's pure gold.
it aint gold, ITS THE ENTIRE MULTIVERSE AND THE GALAXY BEYOND!!! AKA: THE GOLDEN MULTIVERSE/GALAXY!!
"gee this is worse than the time i was lost in Cyberspace"
Family Guy stock death pose? What does that look like?
That ain’t gold that’s platinum
i wasn't expecting it but yeah, it's gold
One of my favorite games in the series to be honest.
This was an absolute blast to play, please keep these fun little side games coming.
also detective pikachu crossover when
This game looks awesome!!! It looks too awesome to be on steam. This is the greatest masterpiece ever and if it is on steam I’m playing it.
I've never been a fan of Sonic games really, but honestly THIS is something I would play
This is *PERFECTION.*
We need one *EVERY YEAR.*
The bois are going Mojang style
ffs, no. I love this, too, but yearly release schedules are the worst.
I can totally imagine a SEGA-backed game jam for sonic fan games, that would be SO sick!
How? Sonic is dead!
And no, we're not using a kiss from a princess to bring him back just so he can get murdered again next year!
@Heartwell Rootsthey are just small games bruh, and this game it's not made by sonic team so sonic team can work normally
It's nice to see that despite it all, Sonic Team still has a sense of humor.
This game gets an 11/10. I honestly and wholeheartedly loved it. The games final boss was HARD for me, and additionally, I just enjoyed it. Thank you, SEGA, for stepping into a NEW direction with our blue blur.
Eu amaria jogar esse jogo. Mal posso esperar 😄, espero que tenha pra celular, seria bom
This is freaking incredible. Seeing Sonic officially in the Family Guy death pose…and seeing Knuckles in his cowboy hat-
This…this is incredible. I love it.
Oh man, I knew miniscule amounts of this franchise, but when I got recommended this trailer and saw in the description that this game was free I immediately went and played through the entire thing, got attached to the characters, and decided to start watching playthroughs of every sonic game in order of release along with the animated series. That's how sega fucking GETS YOU GOD DAMN IT
i love when companies have a sense of humor
Hope you guys make a series out of this, I loved and and beat it yesterday! lol
I finished the game and I really loved it!! Thanks SEGA ❤❤❤
My April fools day wasn't so horrible this year. Never really put much thought into this holiday besides two of my former teachers having a birthday on that holiday.
Made me happy that Sonic is still going besides what is going on with his creator .
Though now this makes me wonder, will this have a Twitter Takeover?
Even though it was April Fools game. The game itself was challenging and interacting with the characters was (and still is) a long time dream for me.
The outfits on everyone was AMAZING!
By fans for fans just seems to be the way to go for sonic. Especially with these little funny spoofs that end up being really cool games like this!
This and Sonic Frontiers makes me think the franchise is finally getting back on track.
I love how SEGA has fully accepted Sonic's meme status to the point they're now making full games about it.
That wasn't an actual Sonic game, this is an April Fool joke.
@Victor Gonzalez it doesnmt hafta be mutually exclusive
a game can be a joke
@Victor Gonzalez you're replying to a robot
@Victor Gonzalez It IS an actual fully official Sonic game
Just finished playing it.
It was so cute and amazing.
Even though Sonic died, I can’t help but smile and laugh at the presentation and execution of this trailer! The fact that this is real just blows my mind.
