SGJ Episode #82 – The Funny Ways to Die in Wayward Terran Frontier: Zero Falls

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast! This week, Jim and I sit down with George Hultgren of Reason Generator Inc. to talk about their currently Kickstarting game, Wayward Terran Frontier: Zero Falls. This is their second Kickstarter campaign this year, and this time they’ve tightened their focus into a sleek, procedurally generated single player experience that promises to offer quite lot of gameplay. Mixing elements of FTL, Star Control, Sentinel Worlds 1: Future Magic and other games, WTF: ZF allows you to not only pilot ships, but build and command space stations, board other ships, mine asteroids from WITHIN them and more. It’s a very neat experience to know that you can build a base, then build a ship, run around in both, and then board another ship for another little adventure. It also made for a fun podcast, as not only was I getting into trouble on the video, but George was debugging and patching the game AS HE WATCHED ME PLAY IT. That’s a first, let me tells ya.

As always, we thank you for watching and/or listening, and encourage you to let us know if you’d like us to bring on a guest or talk about a topic. You can hit us up in the comments or by emailing us directly at hail@spacegamejunkie.com. Thanks again, and enjoy the show! :)

Let’s Play Starpoint Gemini 2 – Entry 5 – Feeling a Bit More Competent

Uhboyuhboyuhboy...

Uhboyuhboyuhboy…

In this installment of Starpoint Gemini 2, I finally begin to regain that sense of fun I lost in the last session. This time I spent some more time following the main storyline — which is still insane — but I also spent some money upgrading my ship, especially its guns. Now I don’t feel so helpless and impotent on the battlefield, and can hold my own in more situations, which gives me a sense of engaging challenge once again. In the next session, I’ll do some freelance missions and try to actually capture some ships in order to get a better ship. Thanks for watching!
