SEGA Carnival
is an immersive tribute to the early internet, aiming to bring you back to a better time and a better place, when the World Wide Web was only just beginning to find its footing; but first and foremost, it's going to be an absolutely massive database for all things vintage SEGA, from hardware to software and everything in between. We plan to become a huge, centralized resource on the net for this kind of content, featuring in-depth walkthroughs, developer interviews, technical information, prerelease/unused content... All kinds of odds and ends.

Alongside this, we want to foster a strong and familial community as other forums did in their prime. One of our most important goals here is to provide a meeting place for like-minded people and lead them to relationships and experiences that will stick with them their entire lives. A majority of our staff grew up in an era where message boards, oekaki, and similar concepts were the dominant form of social interaction on the internet - and we've definitely noticed a sharp decline in their popularity now that larger and more diverse platforms have entered the scene. In spite of this, however, we still believe there's a strong demand for these kinds of spaces in today's online climate, and we want nothing more than provide a means to that end.

With our forums now feature complete, you'll begin regularly seeing things such as fun, site-wide events that can earn you currency, special userbars, badges, and more! Eventually, we even plan on developing large-scale mobile apps with lots of functionality; more details on that later, though! Additionally, as our userbase grows, so will our forums - you can expect to see more and more boards created depending on what our community ends up wanting and needing.

In regards to long-term goals, we have several things both on the table and under wraps; what I can say right now is that we want to eventually expand our coverage both backwards, forwards, and outside its original scope once a majority of our goals have been met. This includes documentation of things like the SG-1000, Master System, Game Gear, and Mega Drive - and even other, non-game media such as anime, light novels, and audio dramata.

SEGA Carnival comes from a place very close to my heart, and I'm sure this is true of everyone else on the staff. We really hope you have a fantastic time here, and that you'll stick it out with us until we've made our dream come true. The sky's the limit, and it'll really be a sight to see one day.

Oh, and we have a cute mascot girl named Nomad. That's a selling point, right?
