About Us

Robot Gentleman is the independent games developer based in Poznan, Poland, easily recognizable by their signature headgear. If you’ve ever seen a robot in a top hat, that’s probably one of us! The studio is known for the warmly received dark comedy atomic adventure 60 Seconds! and its spiritual successor – 60 Parsecs!

We are a joyful ensemble of developers who are keen on storytelling experimentation. Creating captivating narratives, bending design ideas and crossing boundaries is what we aim for in our titles. Originally coming from both game development and filmmaking backgrounds, we’ve been fostering our robot culture to create games in our own unique way.

Following the success of the “60” series, we plan to continue developing unconventional games with twisted stories, while also actively engaging with the global gamedev community and supporting the local indie scene in our home city of Poznan, Poland.

Our Games

The post-apocalyptic dark comedy is back in 60 Seconds! Reatomized - remastered and even more radioactive than before! Scavenge supplies, rescue your family, and stay alive in your fallout shelter. Make difficult decisions, hunt mutant roaches... and maybe survive. Or not.


60 Parsecs! is an Atomic Space Age adventure of scavenge and survival. Keep your crew alive and ready for action. Make difficult choices, face soup shortages and other horrors of outer space. And maybe reach your destination. Or not.
