SGJ Podcast #51: Ascending Into Our Own Personal Space with The Space Game

Fly in Space in Your Browser!

Fly in Space in Your Browser!

A little while back, I got an email from the developer of Ascent – The Space Game, James Hicks, telling me about his game. I love when I get emails like this because I can’t track down all the space games myself, you know? ;) So after playing the Unity-based browser space sim (and don’t let that fool ya, it’s a totally awesome game), I contacted James and asked him to come on the podcast to tell us more about his game. This game, to me, is totally reminiscent of Frontier: Elite II, and that is a very, very good thing. Therefore please join Jim and I as we talk to James about his game, Australia, game development and a bunch more. :)

As always, if you have questions or comments on this show, leave ’em in the comments below. You can also email us at if you’d like to ask us questions or leave comments that we’ll likely read on the show itself. ;) Thanks for listening folks, and enjoy! :)
