"Waypoint visits UC Santa Cruz's Games and Playable Media Graduate Program, where they're creating the next generation of video game designers."

In August of 2017, the Waypoint documentary team came to record a special about my game grad students and our program at UCSC. In the video you learn about their games, as well as my own role as a Creative Director and instructor. I am just the proudest mama hen.

Hey Ash Whatcha Playin'? 

Gravity Ghost features in Season 5, Episode 16 of 'Hey Ash Whatcha Playin'?, a comedy series where a brother and sister poke fun at recent games.

Gravity Ghost: 
A Postmortem

"In this postmortem, Ivy Games lead developer Erin Robinson shares the experience of developing her game Gravity Ghost. She provides a detailed breakdown of the many design decisions necessary for turning this experimental gravity mechanic into a complete game. This included frequently abandoning ideas that didn't work, learning what to listen for when playtesting, and staying true to a central theme in every aspect of the art, design, and story."
