Gates. Could be Good…Could be Bad…. Hey friends, welcome to this week’s show! This week, Spaz, Julie, Thorston, Jacob and I sit down to (mostly, with some tangents) talk about gatekeeping, especially in gaming. This happens all the time to marginalized folks for a variety of reasons, and my god I had no idea just how bad it was. I learned a lot, and I hope you do too. Next week, a more positive topic: MicroProse! We’ll talk about the old and the new of one of our favorite developer publishers!

Next week we’ll talk about gatekeeping, something we alllll hate. ;) As always, if you have any questions or comments, please drop them in the comments below, email us at hail@spacegamejunkie.com or hit us up on the forums.

 SGJ Podcast #386 – Licensed Games | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 55:53

My Personal Favorite Licensed Game Hey friends, welcome to this week’s show! This week, Spaz, Julie, Thorston, Jacob and I have a short but sweet conversation about licensed games. We had a hard stop at an hour, so it’s a bit shorter than usual, but we had a lot of fun being pleasantly surprised and sadly shocked at not only how many licensed games there are, but which things get licensed games. Did you know there’s a late 80s adventure game based on the British comedy, “Yes, Prime Minister”? I didn’t. It makes for a fun show, and we hope you enjoy it. Next week we welcome back the developer of Interstellar Space: Genesis to talk about their latest expansion, Evolving Empires!
