My name is Robert Henley and I am the newest member of the 303 Games team. I have had a passion for computers and gaming since I was barely tall enough to sit in a chair reach the keyboard. A software developer by trade, I am currently using experiences picked up in the corporate world to act as the project manager and general support for the rest of the team.
Why I am part of 303 Games:
Years of being friends, playing games and even competing in game jams with the other members of the 303 team has given me the opportunity to work on the >Dev/Null project. Opportunities to work on a project this cool with a team you know as well as we have come to know each other are very rare. So rare that when I recognized it, I knew I had to take a chance on it. There are few things better than working with a group of talented and like-minded people on a project you believe in.
What I do at 303 Games:
My primary duties as the team manager are to keep track of the rest of the team’s progress, ensure that everybody is clear on their own responsibilities and to provide the team with everything they need to do their job. Another one of my duties is creating some of the project’s documentation which can include anything from taking notes during meetings to creating publicly accessible content for the future such as instructions or FAQ’s. Essentially I grease the wheels and take care of many of the jobs that most indie game teams either forget or do not care about until the last minute.
What I do outside 303 Games:
Outside of the >Dev/Null project there are a handful of things that I find myself coming back to. Most obvious would be videogames. Picking a favorite game for me is an impossible task, but some of the candidates would be Total Annihilation, Freespace 2 and Red Alert 2. My latest gaming fix has come from short intense bursts of Mechwarrior Online. We at 303 tend to refer to it as simply “Stompy Stompy Robots”. I am generally a complete sucker for almost anything that could be labeled science fiction. When my eyes cannot focus on a computer screen any more I make my own beer. Homebrewing beer has been a hobby of mine for over a year now. My latest creation is an amazing oatmeal cream stout. It is an art form I hope to perfect over many years.
