Paul Hellquist Joins Robot Entertainment

Paul Hellquist

On behalf of all of us at Robot Entertainment, I am thrilled to welcome Paul Hellquist to our team as Lead Designer. Paul’s track record as a game designer is impressive, to say the least. Paul joins Robot after seven years at Gearbox Software where he was Creative Director on the outstanding Borderlands 2. Prior to this, Paul spent nine years at Irrational Games where he was Lead Designer on the stellar and influential BioShock.

I spent a considerable amount of time with Paul recently, and I was consistently impressed with his breadth of thinking, passion for great design, and humility. His remarkable portfolio of work is clearly well-earned. Paul is a great fit for Robot, and I expect him to have a profound impact on the games we make, starting with Orcs Must Die! Unchained.

The next beta phase for Orcs Must Die! Unchained is coming soon, and we can’t wait to share the many updates with you. Until then, please give a hearty welcome to Paul and follow him on Twitter!
