Rob Murrant Staff Bio

I became a staff writer for Adventure Gamers in 2010 and have been an active contributor ever since.

Like most of the staff writers here, I started playing games at a very early age, beginning rather unhealthily somewhere back in the 1980s.

As you can imagine my formative opinions about adventure games revolve around the ‘Golden Years of Adventure’ which (well for me at least) seemed to occur somewhere from between 85-97.

I’m a huge fan of the genre and actively take an interest in indie projects, grass root developers and freeware / remake games.

I produced a blog from from 2007 to 2011 called Computer+Adventure.

I also build the odd Mame arcade cabinet from time to time…
