Robot Gentleman is the independent games developer behind the highly acclaimed dark comedy atomic adventure 60 Seconds!. We are a creative ensemble, composed of veterans of the games and films industry, having worked on such games as the award winning Fable and Witcher series, and renowned films including Lars von Trier’s Melancholia and European Space Agency’s Ambition. Following the success of 60 Seconds!, Robot Gentlemen aims to continue developing captivating games with unconventional stories, while also supporting our local indie community in the city of Poznan, Poland.
Robot Gentleman was founded in 2012 by Dominik Gotojuch. After fantastic, hands-on experience of developing AAA games of the award winning Fable and Witcher series, he decided to pursue smaller, unconventional projects in a compact team of like-minded and unorthodox creators.The first step
After concluding his work at Lionhead Studios Dominik decided to create a game on his own. Little did he know this small game, which later turned out to be the board-game inspired strategy Intrigue, would take quite a bit to develop. Also, he was shocked and appalled to discover he couldn't draw and stick people are not exactly the desired art style. Bravely ignoring the fact, he decided the best way to create great games would be with a wildly creative team.Robots, Ladies and Gentlemen
Despite challenges (and too much hard currency spent on perfecting Dominik's stick people) a dream team was eventually assembled. That was when we popped a soda, pretending it was a fancy champagne, and Robot Gentleman was officially established. Creative energy exploded left and right and soon we found ourselves with millions of ideas. And we're planning to make them happen. We have started with our debut title, an atomic adventure of scavenge and survival, 60 Seconds!. Apart from creating games, we have also been sneaking a lot into game development conferences, game jams and other events, taking an active part in a variety of game developer communities. We are proud to be one of the founders of Pyramida Hub - a Poznań based indie collective, where we operate with a fantastic ensemble of local indies.
