Livelyivy.com is the internet home of me, Erin Robinson, an independent game developer.
Though I can usually be found staring into a screen of some sort, some other neat things have happened lately:
I competed in the last-ever Game Design Challenge at GDC 2013, alongside Will Wright, Harvey Smith, Jason Rohrer, Steve Meretzky, and Richard Lemarchand.
I gave the Keynote presentation for the 2013 Global Game Jam.
In 2011, Fast Company named me as one of the Most Influential Women in Technology.
I co-founded Chicago’s Indie City Games group in 2010 with DePaul University professor Scott Roberts.
My background is in experimental psychology, and sometimes I write about the intersection of neuroscience and video games.
I co-hosted the 2010 Independent Games Festival Awards with Kyle Gabler.
Heather Kelley and I won the 2009 Game Design Challenge as a last-minute replacement.
I’m a frequent speaker at GDC and I’ve given lectures everywhere from China to Sweden (but mostly just those two).
You might know me from such indie games as:
Plus some experimental games, including:
I also love teaching short prototyping courses in Unity/C# and scrum.
