Catch-up continues as we continue to publish past podcasts, this one from January 2021.

Kicking this episode off is a lengthy discussion of the then-recently released demo for Balan Wonderworld, which, unsurprisingly, we were not especially positive on. I do my best to explain Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, and Nuckles plays some Sonic flash games before Adobe kills the platform.

In the news, we discuss the Taxman Sonic 1 & 2 PC decompiles, Roger Craig Smith and Ken Pontac leaving the franchise, Sonic 2 Movie’s shooting locations, and we wrap things up with more IDW talk, covering the finale of Badnik Bases and Chao Races, and the Bad Guys miniseries.
