I'm interested in finding a publisher who has good experience with including solo modes in their games, so that we can interview them on On Board Games. I want to learn about the business side of creating solo games: how adding a solo mode impacts sales, what are the costs associated with it, etc. (If you're interested, the topic came out of a discussion on this thread https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/23647835#23647835)

So hit me! Which publishers are including solo modes in their games pretty consistently?
