The official Sonic the Hedgehog twitter just posted a peculiar message.

"The key lies with @madeon. Good luck."

Music related? Hidden game announcement?

So to finish this ARG, we have to flood @madeon with questions regarding Sonic

I think the next word is Empire? The secret is inside the empire?

Yeah, it says the "secret is inside the empire, we can get it back". Maybe Madeon is composing music for the next game? Or remixing a few songs for the 25th anniversary? Either would be really cool.

I'm assuming this is some kind of Madeon Sonic remix album in honor of the anniversary

I would not get your hopes up for this being related to a new game

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that he's going to do the main vocal theme for the next Sonic game.

It would be cool if Sonic Adventure 3 was a thing, or ports to PSV/WiiU/PS4 since I don't have my PS3/GC hooked up. Feel nostalgic for it after watching the Conpletionist videos.

It's probably more red herring stuff, just playing on that his album is called Adventure and that they've interacted before.

I'd love to be wrong though because his music is pretty damn cool and he does have a history of being featured in games (most notably PSASBR iirc).

Guys I inverted the colours and changed the saturation of the image. There's more text.





Edit: Nevermind seems like Geek has got the full message.

Dang, ninja'd. What I got agrees with this stuff though.

The letter K in this font looks a lot like several other consonents, so I kept thinking "ok, next ones K - oh god damn it Ruby if this starts talking about knuckles wait nevermind".

Edit: OK, Daedelus is from Greek mythology, he had a few sons, most notably Icarus.

Gosh, all this ARgame shenanigans has me unexpectedly excited. I hope we actually get a new, good Sonic game this year, whether it's Sonic Adventure 3 or something else.

Probably this.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that he's going to do the main vocal theme for the next Sonic game.

But this is a possibility as well. That or he's doing official remixes for a Generations-esque game.
