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.

At Roboto, our mission is to bring friends & family together with games that can be played anytime and anywhere. Think of all the issues stopping you from playing video games with your friends or family and think of Roboto Games as the company that’s going to fix them. Our games will run on all the major games platform including the web and mobile. Even if your friends’ play times only align with yours for a few minutes, you’ll have fun playing with them. We want to make playing games with your friends and family a much better experience than it is today.

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

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