128 - Mikael Tillander

128 - Mikael Tillander

This week's guest is Mikael Tillander, the Swedish developer behind a fairly recent Mega Drive game called Tänzer. It's a blend of different genres, the most notable ones being platformer, hack 'n' slash and shoot-em-up. A fast-paced action game with an amazing soundtrack that you can get for your Mega Drive or Genesis in physical format. I talk to Mikael about his hobby as a video game developer, his newfound love for the SEGA Mega Drive and what to expect from him in the future. Check it out.

Hello everyone! The doors of The SEGA Lounge are once again open for everyone hoping to have a good time listening to a friendly chat and an evil game. Thank you all for being here! The fact that you took the time to listen to this episode is amazing and it's very much appreciated.

As I mentioned last week, September 30th was International Podcast Day. We celebrated it early in a way with the amazing SEGAGUYS from The SEGAGUYS RetroPod, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to other amazing podcasts out there:

And, naturally, check out all the amazing on demand versions of RadioSEGA LiVE shows which will keep you entertained every single week.

If you're curious about Tänzer and want to know how it plays and sounds, I'll be doing a Lounge follow-up Twitch stream on my channel on Wednesday, October 7th from 9PM UK time. I'll be playing through the game, or trying at least. I'll probably be dying a lot so you will be able to at least laugh at my lack of skills.

Before I wrap up things for the week, I am very honored to share a bit of news that I received today. I was contacted by the fine folks at Feedspot saying that The SEGA Lounge was included in their Top 10 SEGA Podcasts You Must Follow in 2020 list. Not only that, but when I went and checked the list, we are number one on that list. I'll leave a link to the full list on the show notes as there are other friends of the show on there and all of them are podcasts you should definitely check out if you have the time. So again, thanks Feedspot for naming The SEGA Lounge the number one podcast you must follow this year.

Of course, none of this would be possible without you guys, the listeners and I have to say your support for the current season of the show has been tremendous and humbling. Thank you very much!

And on that particularly surprising note, I'll say goodbye for the week. Thank you again for listening. Stay safe and please do your best to stay happy. I'll see you all next time when we once again reopen the doors of The SEGA Lounge. Buh-bye!
