Here’s a full playthrough of the game Space Ava 201, featuring it’s creator Nicole Branagan aka Nicole Express. As previously reported, Space Ava is a single-player puzzle-adventure game for the TurboGrafx / PCE CD, that can also utilize the Arcade Card to speed up loading, as well as a SuperGrafx for adding visual enhancements to the game.
I ended up playing through the entire game, with Nicole explaining the backstory of the game, as well as discussing her game creation history…and of course, helping me out when I got stuck in certain puzzles! It’s best to think of this as a “pre-recorded, livestream playthrough” and not so much an “official interview” or anything like that, as this was very laid back and we both often get sucked into the game!

Just a friendly warning: I didn’t balance our audio properly while recording and tried to fix it all in post. Hopefully I did a good enough job so it doesn’t take away from the experience!
Also, here’s links to the MiSTer setup and clear controller case I used:
