History

Early history

Hi, my name is Robin. I’ve always been interested in video games and digital art. In my teens I built maps using the editors of Half-Life, GTA2, Warcraft 3, tried out 3Ds Max, recorded music, made websites and flash movies on my computer and together with my friends. After school and a year working at a kindergarten I decided to study digital media at the University of Bremen. In 2010, during my outgoing semester at The Art Institute of Boston, I attended a game design class where I first heard of the UDK, the Unreal Development Kit. Back in Bremen my roommate and I experimented with the UDK and then decided to do a game as our Bachelor Thesis. We learned a lot during this project that became a game called MORI that uses a brain computer interface as additional input modality and got us our Bachelor degree.

After that

In 2012 I did an internship at the game development studio KING Art where I worked with 3Ds Max again. But this time there were professionals around me and that really pushed my modeling skills. I did another internship at Polygonfabrik but after that I didn't really know where to go next. I wrote a ton of job applications, tried out different jobs but nothing felt right to me. So I decided to write a business plan and to start working on my own projects. I'm now self-employed since May 2014. We'll see where it leads me...
