Hi I'm Michael. I like to make little tabletop and video games and talk a lot about old computer games and gardening.
I also helped start an indie game collective in Michigan, USA called Locally Sourced that you can check out here (https://linktr.ee/locallysrcdmi).
Also consider checking out my Michigan indie game compilation zine!

Preparing for recording a podcast episode on Flight of the Amazon Queen tomorrow and thought this interview with one of the main devs was interesting
