Episode 45 - Morten Monrad Pedersen of the Automa Factory

Morten Monrad Pedersen is best known for his work on the Scythe and Viticulture solo modes, but did you know he too scoffed at solo games just over 5 years ago? I was thrilled to talk with Morten, not only because of his involvement in some of the most celebrated solo games in the industry, but also because his Scythe Automa design was the game that opened my eyes to how and why solo play can be meaningful. We talk about his life growing up in Denmark, his history with computer programming, and how he got wrapped up in all of this solo play stuff with Stonemaier Games.
