Jamestown: your average Sir Walter Raleigh on Mars video game

John Moe Jun 24, 2011

On today’s show, we talk to Ars Technica’s Ben Kuchera about a game that’s highly atypical and, according to Ben, a lot of fun. It’s called Jamestown. It seems that a 17th century war between England and Spain has spilled over to Mars. Happens.

Ben tells us that the game, which costs ten bucks and is available as a download for PC only, was developed by three friends with painstaking and loving detail.
