About ROG

Robot Overlord Games is an independent game development studio based between Glasgow (UK) and Vienna (Austria).

ROG began as a name under which Luke Dicken developed small test projects that proved particular aspects of his artificial intelligence research, but has now grown to work on complete projects as well as providing AI contracting and consulting services to other developers. We most recently worked on Redshirt, a forthcoming title from The Tiniest Shark. We are also working on our own projects, which we’re really pleased to be able to start to introduce to you.

Our first game is called “Easy Money?”, and will be coming to mobile in 2014. It’s currently undergoing a face-list, overseen by ROG’s artist Verena Riedl. The game explores risk and reward – will you risk losing everything to climb the hiscore table, or will you play it safe and cash out early? We’re currently in public Alpha testing with our early-stage builds of the game, which you can check out for yourself here! You can learn more about the technology we’re using and the development process for Easy Money? by reading the blog.
