Robin Johnson (he/him)

Writer and interactive fiction/narrative game developer

Hello! I'm a game developer and creative writer, with a particular interest in interactive fiction (IF), text adventures, and narrative games. I'm fascinated by the relationship between system and tool design and creative game design, and I'm fond of the deceptive power of comic and whimsical writing to tell emotionally powerful stories.

This site is my portfolio of games and other creative projects I've worked on. For a prettier catalogue of my games, aimed at players, see my itch page.

  • Mobygames has pages for three Robin Johnsons, at least two of which are partially based on me, and one of which – presumably thanks to an eager data harvesting bot and a flippantly worded manpage – is given a credit as "Worst of the depraved individuals out there in netland who sent in particularly intriguing modifications to help out with the game"
