Welcome to Space Game Odyssey, a simple blog where I, Richie Shoemaker, plan to record and reference my occasional adventures at the helm of whatever space game is taking my fancy.
Space-themed games have always been a favourite of mine since encountering the likes of Space Invaders and Asteroids as a kid. But, as time has progressed and life has become increasingly about the present, my ability to keep up with the far future has lessened considerably. Rather than try to stay ahead of all that is happening, Space Game Odyssey is simply a vehicle to allow me to not stray too far behind, or, if I do get a bit lost, find a way back.
If it's not already apparent, this isn't a site for up-to-the-minute space gaming news, video reviews or community podcasts (Space Game Junkie is better equipped to help you there). This vessel is merely an occasional captain's log of an ongoing mission to seek out new-ish space games while occasionally docking with some of the older titles I've enjoyed or missed.
There's no course plotted in - this blog is all about the journey. With that in mind, I hope you enjoy checking in from time to time to see how it's progressing.
