Sonic’s Edusoft is a game for Master System developed by Tiertex and published by U.S. Gold for the Sega Master System. No one knew anything about this game until an anonymous person created a Wikipedia page with information on the license, this individual turned out to be one of the programmers. Later, with the nickname “the programmer” gave some information about the game in the forums SMSPower.
Development started in 1991, soon after the release of the first Sonic game nd before the beginning of the programming of the second. This game is considered the first title not developed by Sonic Team not absolute and the first featuring the blue hedgehog to be published. The game was tested in a primary school and was really well received (it was designed for children under 5 years).
Sega was aware of this title, but the use of Sonic was not approved and the game was not published. It is established that is not a fake, the program said that sooner or later will create a website that explain everything in the game, but not right now for personal reasons. The ROM of Sonic’s Edusoft was leaked in April 2008.
