Joseph Robinson - Editor-in-Chief
Joe has been in the videogames industry since 2007/8. He started off as a writer for gaming website Strategy Informer, which evolved into GameWatcher, where he also served as Deputy Editor & Marketing Manager. He’s also written for acclaimed websites such as Rock, Paper, Shotgun & PCGamesN. Prior to becoming EIC at Wargamer Ltd., he spent two years working in Videogames PR, covering eSports and Ent-Tech clients. He is very interested in where digital card games are going, and hopes they become more mobile friendly. He’s also a big fan of utility apps, whether it helps him to build fleet lists for Star Wars: Armada, or go over his decks in Warhammer 40K: Conquest or A Game of Thrones: Second Edition.
Kelsey Rinella is a stay-at-home dad of children born in 2008 and 2009 with a history of higher education in Philosophy and Cognitive Science. In games, he prefers a deliberate pace and is attentive to interface choices and the fit between mechanics and theme. Kelsey currently plays on an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 (on which the sound is spotty), an XBox 360, and various tablets. He fondly remembers -tal, Sid Meier’s Civilization series, King’s Bounty, Counter-Strike, Magic: the Gathering, the Zelda series, Warhammer: Chaos in the Old World, Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, and Por-.
Tof Eklund is a non-binary transgender parent, professor, and all-purpose geek. They teach courses in game design and game writing at Full Sail University, subsist largely on coffee and dark chocolate, and retain only the most tenuous grasp on consensus reality. Tof's scattershot endeavours include creating mini-comics about Derrida and Deluze, writing feminist smut, and editing a RPG series. Their interests include Android releases, story-driven strategy games, visual novels with sim elements, pixel art, games with LGBTQ themes, and videogame surrealism. Tof's ideal mobile game would be something like Ravenmark meets Hatoful Boyfriend, just set in the world of Vangers, with a meta game like that in Sword and Sworcery.
