Sunsoft

Sunsoft

March 18, 2020

Episode #141 of BGMania. We're back with another company-focused edition of the podcast, and this time, Bryan and Frank listen to some excellent music from games published and/or developed by Sunsoft! The duo also share quite a bit of memories that they have from Sunsoft related games. Frank's audio gets "demonic", for lack of a better word, for a few brief seconds at the beginning of the show and again near the end of the show. Weird how internet lag can do that to a file sometimes! Enjoy the show!

Sorry for the delay and the episode not being up this morning, as I had a bit of work to get done that unfortunately came first. Nevertheless. Enjoy the show!
