Tim RobinetteLead Game Designer
Practically born with an Atari joystick in his hand, Tim Robinette was introduced to gaming at a very early age. As he grew, the desire to design his own games did as well. Tim began to teach himself programming in elementary school, and explore early concepts in game design as well. Shortly after Doom was released in 1993, Tim began gravitating toward level design as a hobby and eventually picked up creating custom maps and mods for games like Doom, Half-Life, and Unreal.
