Josh Roberts

Staff Bio

I hate these things, but okay: I’ll tell you just a little about myself.

I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, and have written for Adventure Gamers since December of 2000 on various projects. Most of my efforts lately have been focused on the Underground scene, and I’m currently writing a series called Adventure Architect that describes my efforts to create the perfect amateur adventure game. I also run an independent game production company called Chapter 11 Studios, through which the game will eventually be published.

My hobbies include hiking, traveling, making adventure games, and watching baseball. By day, I’m a travel writer based out of Cambridge, and before that I used to work at Marvel Comics in New York City. So, I don’t really have any complaints!
