About Roboto Games 

Hi! We’re Roboto Games, a minty fresh venture-backed games company. Before this we were leading games at PopCap, EA and Space Ape. And this isn’t our first rodeo/game studio. In 2007 we founded ZipZapPlay, a web and Facebook gaming company (we baked lots of cupcakes while making Baking Life), which we sold to PopCap (zombies also eat cupcakes it turns out) before they sold to EA in 2011. Since then we’ve also contributed to several mobile game hits. On average, we have 12 years of experience designing games with over $100m in revenue and over 65m players.

At Roboto, our mission is to make games that are good alone and great together. Our games are real-time multiplayer and cross-platform, so friends can easily play together. Our upcoming title is a bite-size survival/crafting MMO that will also include the option to own digital assets. We believe in making inclusive hybrid games that are fun for years and that will appeal to a broad range of players. Whether it’s on mobile, PC, or console, you and your friends can play together anytime and anywhere.

If that sounds like fun, then join us! You should also join us if you like wizards, zombies and unicorns, not necessarily in that order.

All that sounds great you say? What do I need to do? Glad you asked!
