Robin Johnson (he/him)

Game writer and interactive fiction/narrative game developer
Available for freelance or permanent work

Hello! I'm a freelance game developer and creative writer, with a particular interest in interactive fiction (IF) and other interactive writing, narrative and story-based 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. I'm most at home doing creative work, especially in interactive writing or dialogue, or in the space between development and design.

I'm looking for work from late June 2023. I'll consider contract or permanent work. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, and need to work remotely for the foreseeable future.

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.
