SGJ Podcast #206 – Astrobase Command

Pretty!

Welcome to this latest Space Game Junkie Podcast my friends! This week, Jim, Hunter, Spaz and I sit down with Dave Williams – Co-Founder and Everything Designer at Jellyfish Games — to talk about their recently successfully Kickstarted space station building and personality meshing sim, Astrobase Command. While we didn’t get to touch the game our own selves, we still, I think, came up with good questions to ask Dave about his game, and the game itself does sound pretty awesome. A good portion of the show, however, was a broader discussion about the state of the games industry, why there hasn’t been a crash yet (but there will likely still be one), the difficulties of running a Kickstarter campaign and a LOT more. Dave is an industry veteran, so he had a lot of awesome insights, and I think it speaks well for Astrobase Command that he came across so knowledgeable and passionate about gaming in general. Overall, it was a great, great show, and we hope you enjoy it.

Next week on the show, we’ll be doing an early morning episode (for me anyway) to talk to the folks behind the Freelanceresque MMO, Sirius Online! As always, if you have a question or comment, please drop them below, email us at hail@spacegamejunkie.com or hit us up on the forums. Thanks for listening!!!
