Hey there SEGA fans!
Today is the day you’ve been waiting for. In the months since we announced a special little game code named Project Needlemouse, you guys have bombarded us with great interest and questions about what the game might be, who that figure in the silhouette really is, and when we were going to start releasing more info about the game.
Well, read closely and rejoice – because today, we’re finally ready to start talking to you guys more about what Project Needlemouse is all about!
This week, we’re going to reveal a full list of playable characters in Project Needlemouse - if you guys can live up to our oldschool Sonic challenge, that is! Here’s how it works:
1: The Details: Each name on the picture above is a potential playable character in Project Needlemouse. However, not all of them are going to make the cut – and each day this week until Friday, we’re going to update this picture with a rejected stamp over those who will not actually be showing up!
2: The Challenge: Answer our trivia questions about oldschool Sonic games! (Genesis era) We’ll post trivia questions each day on a specific part of our SEGA/Sonic sites, and you all have to work together to figure out the right answers and post them there! Each day we’ll challenge you guys to get a certain number of people to post the correct answers – and if you meet that challenge, we’ll remove more names from the picture in a new blog the following day!
*About Bonus Points: If you go above and beyond the expected results, the community will earn a bonus point for that day. Earn at least three bonus points and we’ll give you all something special this Friday!
3: The Schedule:
Day 1: SEGA Blogs (Difficulty: Easy)
Challenge: Get 100 Replies with 3/3 Correct answers – COMPLETE!
Bonus Point unlocked with 250+ correct responses! – COMPLETE! Current Bonus Points: 1
2:00 PM PST – Hundreds of correct answers have come in! Great job everyone – you went above, beyond, and then some! Check back tomorrow morning at 9 AM Pacific to see which names get cut, and for the next part of the Needlemouse Challenge!
1: In Sonic 1, how many rings were needed at the end of an act to enter a special stage?
2: How many emeralds were in the original Sonic 1 for Genesis / Mega Drive?
3: What colors were these emeralds?
Remember: It’s all about momentum. This statement holds as true with this challenge as it did in the Sonic games that many of us grew up playing. Fans across the world will need to work together and spread the word if you want to succeed. So build up strong now, because the ending is going to be a challenge!
You have just under 20 hours from the time of this posting to reach 100 correct replies, or 250 for the bonus point! Good luck - the Needlemouse challenge begins now!
