SGJ Podcast #34: Hanging Out on a Mandate…

Our Shields are Collapsing!

Our Shields are Collapsing!

Howdy folks, and welcome to this week’s episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast! This week, Jim and I sit down with Producer and Lead Designer Ole Herbjørnsen and Art Director Garret AJ to talk about their currently Kickstarted game, The Mandate. We learn a lot about the game, its evolution, its history and even play around a little with its ship designer and such. It was a damned fun podcast to record, and should make for a fun listen. :)

As always, we hope you enjoy the show, look forward to your comments below, and invite you to subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or RSS. Thanks for listening! :)

Note: I’m swamped this week so rather than listening to the entire show again and building the notes from that — which I sadly don’t have time for — I’m building these from memory, so stuff might be missed. My apologies.

    Consider me intrigued. I’ll have to check out the ship designer and other stuff soon.

    In other news, I am so far behind on these podcasts. I think I left off around episode 8 before summer until dropping back in for this one. I grabbed several and put them in a playlist for while I play Terran Conflict again, though. Works pretty well for catching up.

  2. EBMEBM says

    Indeed I am. My weekend was filled with space game info, amusing anecdotes, fascinating stories from various devs, and a legion of Pauls. You and Jim run a great podcast, so don’t ever stop doing them!

Chime In!
