A joke game! But it turns out to be a real game!

As part of SEGA’s celebration of April Fool’s Day, the Sonic Social team proudly presents The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog.

The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog is the joke game that SEGA has revealed today to celebrate April Fool’s Day. Everyone thought that this was just a joke game and not real, but surprisingly, it is a real game. Steam players can visit its page on the digital storefront right now and the best part is it is free to download.

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?
