Sanic 06 is many things. It is an Oculus Rift demo built by an independent developer over six weeks as he taught himself the graphics engine Unity. It is a surreal nightmare out of Hieronymus Bosch. It is a fanfic wet dream. It is the hardest I’ve laughed at an internet video in quite some time.
But also, who am I to tell you what Sanic 06 is? Who would actually try to define Sanic 06? A monster. A sneak. A charlatan. Every human must judge Sanic 06 on their own terms. Really, you have to see it for yourself:
- Three major U.S. airlines — Delta, American, and United — have banned the transport of big game trophies after the illegal killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.
- On August 4th, 2011, the death of Mark Duggan — an unarmed black man —at the hands of police officers in north London sparked nationwide riots.
- Two people were killed and at least 22 injured after a circus tent collapsed amid stormy weather Monday evening in New Hampshire.
