SGJ Podcast #194 – THQ Nordic

These Folks Have Been Busy…

Welcome to this episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast y’all! This week I (sadly sans Hunter and Jim since it was a morning show) talk to some folks at THQ Nordic about their work on recent space games such as Nexus and Imperium Galactica. Joining me are Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic and, as a nice surprise, Balazs Vasvari, former Lead Programmer at Digital Reality who worked on both the original and newly-remastered version of Imperium Galactica 2: Alliances. While we talk a lot about the aforementioned space games, we also talk about other properties THQ Nordic has taken on lately, like the entire (and amazing) Novalogic catalog. It’s a really fun and enlightening discussion that I wish could’ve gone on for longer.

Also, I say this in the audio, but I wanna apologize for the quality of this episode. I forgot to hit record on my mixer, so the audio was ripped from YouTube, and isn’t awesome. Sorry about that. I hope that, irregardless of this, you still enjoy the show.

Don’t forget we also still have a contest running! If you leave us a (hopefully positive) review on iTunes, you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of the many game codes I have, from the entire Wing Commander series on GOG to all of the X-Wing games on Steam. Once you’ve left a review, screenshot it and email it to! The contest runs for a few more weeks, so get on it! Every ten entries adds another winner, so ten entries will yield one winner, twenty entries, two winners, etc.

Next week on the show, we’ll be talking to the developer of the recently shootey blockey space game, Lightspeed Frontier! If you have a comment or question, please drop them below, email us at or hit us up on the forums. Thanks for listening!
