History

Rob co-founded Trilobyte, the maker of the wildly successful and classic CD-ROM products, The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour. Prior to that, he was company Art Director for Virgin Interactive Entertainment. While there he directed numerous titles such as Spirit of Excalibur and War in Middle Earth. He co-created the popular gameshow of the future, Lexi-Cross, published by Interplay.

Rob first entered the entertainment software industry in 1987 as Art Director for Cinemaware. There, he directed such best-selling titles as Rocket Ranger, King of Chicago and Defender of the Crown.

Prior to moving into entertainment software, Rob delved into a variety of art forms. In the sixties he reveled in the counter-culture movement, drawing outrageous underground comics to support himself. Later he spent several years perfecting the art of wildlife engravings in fossil ivories. Eventually, he purchased a Commodore Amiga, created his first digital graphics, and never looked back.

Following his time at Trilobyte, Rob founded Aftermath Media where he designed and produced two award winning and critically acclaimed interactive motion pictures, Tender Loving Care and Point of View.

Between 2001 and and 2010, Rob focused on graphic design especially as applied to print and web development through his graphic design studio Landeros Design.

In the Fall of 2010, Rob resurrected Trilobyte Games as a company dedicated to bringing puzzle games, innovative storytelling adventures and appBooks to mobile devices and touchscreen tablets.
