Today on NPR Cary Fowler was a guest on the Diane Rehm Show. Fowler is the visionary founder of the Global Seed Vault near the Arctic Circle. I had the privilege of speaking briefly to Cary Fowler about my game Seed War: Assault on Svalbard.





It was an enjoyable segment and the reaction was light-hearted. Fowler said while books and other media had explored the Svalbard vault this was the first game on the subject he had encountered. The host mentioned my game again at the end of the broadcast.

The coalition units are a mix of Axis & Allies, Fortress America, and Risk 2042.

Keep it up Pete, and you'll be on Delicious Dish.



And I think your Seed Vault game would benefit from some Tom Wham artwork!

My comments start near the 43:00 minute mark.

Andy Warhol promised me 15 minutes of fame but I had less than two minutes on National Public Radio today!

Good for you! What is the current state of the game and where do you plan to take it from here? Really cool and interesting subject.

Thank you for the positive comments.

I really need to drag it out and play it again. It was challenging and fun while the unique topic added a bit of extra sizzle.

I've never designed a game but I've created other things and I know what a slog it can be to keep taking something out and working and working on it. I hope you do that, as this is a unique subject and could be a very different gaming experience. Good luck to you!
