SGJ Podcast #140 – Tharsis
Welcome to the Space Game Junkie Podcast my friends! In this episode, Jim, Hunter and I sit down with Producer Matt Hickman of Choice Provisions about their crew and risk management Earth-to-Mars space game, Tharsis! This is a game that’s garnered a lot of emotion on the part of its players as well, moreso than most other games I’ve seen in this genre, so I also invited on two fans and friends of the show — Ben Parrish and Mark Hewitt — of the game to explain how they feel about the game, both positively and negatively respectfully. Now this was an odd show, and it’s entirely my fault, as I had to, at several points, step away and mute my mic due to a plumbing issue in my apartment. Thanks to my cohosts as well as Ben and Mark for keeping the conversation flowing. Overall it was a good discussion about the expectation of gamers, the mechanics of the game and a lot more!
Next week, we’ll be talking to the developers of Planetary Prospectors: A.R.M., an interesting spacey miney game that I’m still trying to wrap my head around, in a good way. :) Thanks for watching/listening, and don’t forget to hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a suggestion for a topic or a guest. Enjoy the show! :)
