“Everyday The Same Dream” is an art game about alienation and refusal of labour which Pedercini created over the course of a week for the Experimental Gameplay Project. Released in 2009, the game has been compared to “Passage” by Jason Rohrer and “Don’t Look Back” by Terry Cavanagh.

Pedercini is the founder of Molleindustria, an ongoing platform for releasing “radical games against the tyranny of entertainment”, and teaches experimental games and media design courses.
