The Minigen is an unlicensed Sega Mega Drive clone console by Gamerz Tek released in 2017.

The console resembles a miniaturized version of the Sega Genesis model 2. It is based on the TCT-6801 "console on a chip". It is compatible with Everdrive flash cartridges and high capacity multicarts, though Virtua Racing, Sega CD and the Sega 32X do not function at all.

It only outputs an NTSC video signal through composite video, and while a region switch allows users to select NTSC-U and NTSC-J releases, PAL region-locked games are not compatible. Despite having dual audio jacks on the rear, the console only outputs mono sound.

The console includes 2 wired 6-button controllers, standard composite av cables and an ac adapter.

Aesthetics aside, it is identical to the MD Compact.

In 2018, Gamerz Tek released a successor called the Minigen HD.
