Our mid-season finale focuses on Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, a remake of the Master System classic developed by Jankenteam and published by Merge Games. Since the game is now out, I invited some friends over to chat about our thoughts on the game. Joining me for this round table are Manuel Melgar, aka Köpke, Renato Almeida and Graham Cookson. If you're still wondering if you should get the game or not, I hope this episode helps.
Joining KC on The Lounge this week is Eli Galindo, founder and owner of Piko Interactive, a company which has been acquiring video game licenses and releasing new games for retro systems. Eli talks about the company's history and also shares some details about their upcoming Kickstarter project to bring to fruition a long-lost project from the Mega Drive's past - Cybernauts: The Next Breed.
Joining KC this week is Jörg Tittel, citizen of the world, former Official Dreamcast Magazine writer, massive SEGA fan and one of the minds behind "The Last Worker", an upcoming game which has just been announced a few days ago.

This week, I'm proud to be joined on The SEGA Lounge by three members of the Victory Heat Rally team. If you're not aware of it, Victory Heat Rally is an upcoming retro-style, super scaler, arcade racing game, that is heavily inspired by classic SEGA arcade racers and is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. I sat down with Ian and Aidan from Skydevilpalm and our old friend RoBKTA, one of the soundtrack composers, to discuss the project. And we also play a musical game. I hope you'll give it a shot as well while you're listening.
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.
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.
The SEGA Lounge has officially reopened for business. This week, and it's a Lounge tradition already, we're covering SAGE, the Sonic Amateur Games Expo 2020. It's a special one, not only for the sheer amount of fan games and indie games that will be showcased, but also because it's the event's 20th anniversary. So you can definitely expect it to be bigger and better than ever. SAGE 2020 takes place from September 5th to September 12th, and it's a pleasure to have Carson, aka Neo Hazard, on the show to discuss it. Stick around for some interesting points regarding what makes this year's event so unique, what Carson thinks of the evolution of SAGE throughout the years and a crazy challenge, as always.
