SGJ Podcast #48: Drowning in Immersion

OOHHH! IMMERSION!

OOHHH! IMMERSION!

Hey folks, welcome to the latest episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast. I apologize for getting this up so late, as Jim sent it to me days ago, but I had the busiest weekend ever, so I didn’t really have time to put it up until now. I also don’t have time to do the detailed show notes this week either (I might have to pair those down in general since they take an awful long time sometimes). :( On a happier note, Jim and I talk about a lot of awesome stuff, like news, games we’re playing and immersion in video games, based on our own experiences plus those you — our awesome readers — shared with us. It made for a great discussion, and we hope you enjoy it. :)

As always, you can leave comments below, or contact us at hail@spacegamejunkie.com if you’d like to contact us directly. Also, while I’m thinking of it, we’re thinking of doing some kind of write-in show, so hey, write us with questions you have and we’ll answer ‘em on a future show. ;) Thanks for listening, as always folks! :)

A Little Bit of EVERYTHING...

A Little Bit of EVERYTHING…

Hey folks, welcome to the latest installment of the Space Game Junkie Podcast. Sorry for the delay in getting this to y’all, but real life sometimes creeps in and makes its presence known above all else. ;) That said, every now and then Jim and I feel it’s good to just sit back, shoot the crap and catch up with the news, what we’ve been playing and so on, so that’s what this latest show is about, and let me tell y’all, we are allllll over the place, in a good way. ;)

As always, we look forward to your comments and thank you for listening! Enjoy the show!

SGJ Podcast #32: Pumped about PULSAR: Lost Colony

Ludicrous Speed!

Ludicrous Speed!

Hey folks, welcome to this episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast. This week, Jim and I sit down with George and Preston Stoll, respectfully artist and programmer on PULSAR: Lost Colony, which also just launched its Kickstarter campaign yesterday. Jim and I were furnished with pre-alpha builds of the game, and it gave us a lovely taste of what’s in store for us space game fanatics. It’s a fun and lively discussion, and we learn a lot about the game and what the brothers have planned for it.

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

Edit: Wow, also, congrats to the team for being approved through Steam Greenlight today!

This Looks Lovingly Familiar...

This Looks Lovingly Familiar…

Hey guys, welcome to the latest episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast. I apologize for the lateness of this one, but I went out of town like almost immediately after this one was done, and had no time to post until today. That being said, it’s a good one, worth the wait! :) Jim and I sit down with Justin S, the developer of Void of Darkness — a spacey game heavily inspired by the Starflight series — to discuss his upcoming game. It’s a lively and informative discussion, and I hope y’all enjoy it.

Thanks for listening, as always, and we look forward to your comments below. Enjoy! :)

Such a Pretty, Busy Galaxy…

Helllooo friends, and welcome to another awesome (we like to think) episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast! This week, Jim and I sit down with Matrix Games Director of Product Development and Business Relations, Erik Rutins and Code Force founder and Distant Worlds creator/lead developer, Elliott Gibbs to talk (or in my case, gush) about Distant Worlds, as well as some businessy talk about Matrix Games too. It all made for a lively and spirited discussion, and we all hope you enjoy it. :)

SGJ Podcast #19: Random Rambly Bits of Randomness, and Physics!

This Episode Makes About as Much Sense as This Picture.

This Episode Makes About as Much Sense as This Picture.

Hello folks, and welcome to episode 19 of the Space Game Junkie podcast! This week, Jim and I have no guest, and you know what thaaaaat meannnnns. WE TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING. Well, almost everything, both on and off topic, and we kinda have a topic, but we skim it because I’m neither prepared nor intelligent enough to discuss it at length. ;)

As always, please throw your thoughts our way, as we love to hear them, and thanks so much for listening! Enjoy!

SGJ Podcast #10: Infinite Spaces and Small Worlds

It All Started Here...

It All Started Here…

No, seriously. ;) This week Jim and I sit down with Iikka Keranen and Rich Carlson of Digital Eel games (who first met while working on Daikatana, no lie), the folks who created the Infinite Space series of Starflight-like roguelikes Strange Adventures in Infinite Space and Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space.  They have a Kickstater underway for their third game in the series, Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars, so we thought we’d bring ‘em on and grill them with deep, probing questions about the game. Ultimately, we went all over the place, but we had a fun time, and we hope you will too.

As always, we invite you to leave your comments below and in the forums, and you can find the show notes below. Thanks as always for listening, and have an awesome day!
