In the late 1970s, while Jeff Dee was still a teenager, he co-created Villains and Vigilantes, which was the first complete superhero role-playing game. In 1997, with his partner ‘Manda, he founded UNIgames, a publisher of role-playing, board games and computer games. In 2009, he also co-founded Nemesis Games, which is the developer of an online game called Gargantua. In addition to his artistic and game-related work, Jeff is an outspoken atheist and transhumanist. He has been the host of a bi-weekly Internet podcast called The Non-Prophets and a former host of a live, weekly, public-access television program, called The Atheist Experience. We were delighted to speak with Jeff about all of these issues and much more!
