126 - Dormiveglia with Darkonius Mavakar and Awesome3475

This week's guests are two members of the team behind Dormiveglia, one of my favorite games of this year's Sonic Amateur Games Expo. Dormiveglia is a 2D Metroidvania style game starring Quinn, the young whip-wielding hero of Spring Plaza. After their village is ransacked by the mysterious Somnia, Quinn quickly sets out to chase after her. Since the game is currently on Kickstarter trying to get funding for its completion, Darkonius Mavakar and Awesome3475 are here to tell us more about the origins and future of this project.

Welcome back to The SEGA Lounge podcast. I hope everyone is doing great this week! More importantly, I hope you are all staying safe out there.

In our never-ending quest of getting The SEGA Lounge everywhere, I'm happy to say that the show is now available on Podbay.fm, which is a good place to listen to podcasts on the web if you'd rather do that than use a mobile device. We're also on TuneIn and, if you're in the US, the UK, Germany or Japan, you can also find us on Amazon Music.

With all the Xbox and PlayStation news in recent days, it's easy to forget about the smaller, indie games that are available or will be soon. Last week, I had a blast playing some of the great indie games available as part of this year's SAGE event. While many of them were great and a handful of them really caught my eye, there is one that's worth a special mention, because it's currently seeking funds via a Kickstarter campaign. And that brings us to this week's show...

This week's guests are two members of the team behind Dormiveglia, one of my favorite games of this year's Sonic Amateur Games Expo. You should know by now that SAGE is not just about the Sonic fan games and rom hacks or mods anymore. Indie games made up a huge chunk of the demos that were available for people to try out at this year's digital event. When I played Dormiveglia during my first SAGE stream last week, the demo impressed me and everyone watching due to its beautiful visuals, great music, brilliant gameplay mechanics and tight controls.

Since the game is currently on Kickstarter trying to get funding for its completion, I reached out to the team to see if they could come on the show and tell us more about the origins and future of this project. Let's have a chat with Darkonius Mavakar and Awesome3475 of the Dormiveglia team.
