Seth Robinson's Blog


I've been making odd games as Robinson Technologies for over twenty five years.

My stuffs: BBS game Legend Of The Red Dragon, multiplayer Flash based web game Funeral Quest, IGF finalists Teenage Lawnmower and Dungeon Scroll, the RPG Dink Smallwood and the creative MMO sandbox Growtopia.

In a previous life I've also done hired-gun development on many titles including Guitar Hero Mobile (BREW), Duke Nukem Mobile (BREW) and Pray Invasion (iPhone).
