Geoff Engelstein joins the D6G crew as our third chair. Geoff has contributed the GameTek segment to The Dice Tower podcast for five years, and co-hosts the new podcast Ludology, with Ryan Sturm. Along with his son Brian he designed The Ares Project, released in 2011 by Z-Man Games. Geoff has been involved in the gaming hobby for close to 40 years, and considers himself an 'omni-gamer', enjoying wargames, euros, RPGs, miniatures, and everything game-related.
This episode we check out the new 4x space conquest game Eclipse. What does it bring new to the genre?
But up first: We ask Geoff to round up his son Brian and we discuss all the trials, challenges and rewards of designinga game. What did it take to get their game "The Ares Project" to store shelves?
All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including:
- The Hollywood Minute
- Total Fan Girl
- Do You Ever Notice
- & More
