SGJ Podcast #174 – Blue Planet

So Pretty...
So Pretty…

Hello my friends, and welcome to this week’s episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast This week, Jim, and I (sans Hunter, sadly) sit down with Seth Dickinson, one of the writers and developer/designers of the massive Freespace 2 mod/total conversion/follow-up game, Blue Planet. We talk to Seth about the history of the project, what it’s like modding Freespace 2 along with its source code, being a part of the massive Freespace Open and Freespace Upgrade communities, and much more. I tell ya, we could talk about Freespace 2 for eons…

Next week on the show, we have a real treat. Industry legends Jack Mamais and David Wessman (who’s name I mispronounced on the show, sorry!) join us to talk about their current game,  Starfighter, Inc., but I’m sure there will be plenty of X-Wing, TIE Fighter and Mechwarrior talk as well. :) If you have any questions or comments, please drop them below, email us at or hit us up on the forums. Thanks for listening, and we hope you enjoy the show!

PS. I was having some sort of bandwidth issue while we were recording, so the video is a bit messy, and I apologize for that. You might want to listen to the audio file for the full experience. Thanks!
