Master of Orion 2

Hey hey hey!

In November we featured the amazing Master of Orion 2, as suggested by our trusty co-host Florian. He's been wanting us to play this one ever since we started DOS Game Club, so we're very excited to finally talk about one of his favourite games.

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") for this episode are Jozef ("jozy"), who was previously on the Monkey Island episode, and also Ynze ("bitrot") who is joining for the first time.

Great PODcast guys! I really enjoyed giving it a listen. I played a bit of 1 when I was a kid, as well as Masters of Magic which was also mentioned 🙂

I tried to play the 2nd one when I was in high school on an old mac I bought to play the Marathon games on… but it was just too slow.

Was fun getting to hear about what I missed out on all those years ago. 🙂

What an incredibly complex ecosystem they have programmed into the game, sounds like it really was before it’s time.

Also great to hear Florian still learning new things about the game all these years later 😀
