SGJ Podcast #192 – Conquest: Frontier Wars


Hey friends, welcome to the Space Game Junkie Podcast (again, a little late, sorry, the week got away from me). This week, Jim, Hunter and I welcome back Director of Fun at Descendent Studios, Eric Peterson, to talk mostly about one of the finest space RTS games you’ll ever play, Conquest: Frontier Wars. We also talk some Descent: Underground and Starlancer as well, of course, but much of our topic is on this favorite-of-mine strategy game. We learn a lot about its history regarding not only its development, but it’s troubled publishing as well (thanks UbiSoft). Overall, it’s a really fun time, and we hope you enjoy it.

Next week on the show…I’m not 100% yet, honestly. I had a topic show on flight sims scheduled for later in March, but since next week was opened I moved it up. HOWEVER I forgot that I invited a friend to join us on the original date for the flight sim show, so I might move it back. We’ll see. It’ll be a fun show whatever we do, and we hope you join us next week for whatever it is. As always, if you have a question or comment, you can drop it below, email us at or hit us up on the forums.

  1. Good stuff, going to watch/listen right now. Conquest alongside Homeworld series and Sins Rebellion is my fav game ever, so i am really interested in what has Eric Peterson to say. Was so disappointed when the Vyrium Uprising never materialised and later the Kickstarter for Conquest 2 failed…
