Poltergames is Michael Spitzer and Fabian Ramelsberger. Two creative minds who are eager to create new worlds and exciting mechanics. The two of us do all the concept, programming, character design, marketing and the world design together in thoughtful detailed work, and rumour has it we never sleep.
Michael is an information science student with a thing for games, pop culture and satire (although we don’t really know what kind of thing it is). Apart from his role in creating the odd world of RoboTraps, Michael created our levels and thought up most of the mechanics behind the robots. He’s also the voice of RoboTraps’ announcer, who will show you the ropes of working at Death Trap Inc.
Fabian studies Media Informatics und likes art, coffee and videogames. Before RoboTraps he has made other games und loves to build creative and detailed worlds. With his arty skills he had a good share in the design of RoboTraps. For example, he created most of the diverse and interesting objects you’ll find in your future office. He also made this kick-ass website you’re looking at.
