I am Soren Johnson, designer/programmer of Old World, Offworld Trading Company, and Civilization 4. AMA!
I have been designing video games for 20 years. I got my start at Firaxis Games in 2000, working as a designer/programmer on Civilization 3. I was the lead designer of Civilization 4 and also wrote most of the game and AI code. I founded Mohawk Games in 2013 as a studio dedicated to making high-quality and innovative strategy games. Our first game, Offworld Trading Company, released on Steam in 2016. Our newest game, Old World, is a turn-based 4X strategy game set in classical antiquity.
