SGJ Podcast #251 – Remnant


Hey friends, welcome to this week’s podcast! This week, Jim, Hunter, Spaz and I sit down with Scott McCallum, the lead developer on the fascinating and currently-Kickstarting 4X, Remnant. I say fascinating because this game eschews so many of the tropes we’ve come to expect from a 4X, and strives to me something truly unique, such as taking place in one solar system, being primarily character driven and much more. We talk about the game, it’s influences (OMG Star Wars: Rebellion y’all!), its features and much more. I can tell y’all, I’m even more excited about this game now than I was at the beginning of the show, because it sounds like it’s going to be AWESOME.

Next week on the podcast, we’re doing a morning show because our guest — the developer of the fantastic Starfighter: Infinity — is in the UK, so I am SUPER excited about that, because I loooove this game. ;) If you have any questions or comments, as always, you can drop them below, email us at or hit us up on the forums. Thanks so much for listening, and we hope you enjoy the show!
