Developer Biography

Warren Robinett was the designer of the first graphical action-adventure game (Adventure) for the Atari 2600 Video Computer System (VCS). By the time it came out in 1979, he had already left the company.

He became the chief software engineer as a co-founder of The Learning Company in 1980. There he created Rocky's Boots in 1982, one of the first successful educational games that taught Boolean logic using a puzzle game format.
