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.

If you're curious about the game 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.
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:
- The Saturn Junkyard's Titancast
- Arcade Perfect Podcast
- Dreamcast Years
- The SEGAGUYS RetroPod

Thank you very much, 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!
