Welcome to Sonic: Lock & Load!

Sonic: Lock & Load is a Sonic the Hedgehog-based first-person shooter on the GZDoom source port, currently a mod that requires DOOM 2's IWAD.

Sonic: Lock & Load is free software under the 3-clause BSD license.

It's not really based on any kind of Sonic game in particular, instead taking inspiration from the entire franchise.

It's also currently very unfinished, and development is kind of slow.

Sonic: Lock & Load is a project by Arsalan Kazmi.

We're getting closer and closer to SRB3...

Well, what are you waiting for? Download it now and experience the next level! ... Whatever that means.

This is normally the part where the changelog would go, but it's massive, and I'm lazy, so... just go to the GitHub release page.

Version 1.2

Like with v1.1, this is basically v1.0.2.

Version 1.1

This is basically v1.0.1. Man, I wish I knew about proper semantic versioning when I released this...

Version 1.0

It's been a long, rough road, but we're finally here.
The long-awaited first release for Sonic: Lock & Load, the Chaos Update, is finally out!
So without further ado... Welcome to the next level.

The Chaos Update is a turning point for Sonic: Lock & Load, becoming more than a simple DOOM mod some bored guy threw together after watching Peter Knetter videos.
