Developer Biography

Henk Rogers (born December 24, 1953) is a video game designer and entrepreneur. He was born in Amsterdam and is of Dutch-Indonesian (Indo) descent. He moved to New York when he was eleven and attended Stuyvesant High School. He then studied computer science and role-playing games at the University of Hawaii.

Rogers moved to Japan during the late 1970's and established Bullet-Proof Software to publish Black Onyx (1984), which became the first role-playing game made in Japan.

In 1988 Rogers, with Nintendo's help, secured the exclusive rights to market Tetris on video game consoles. During the negotiations in Moscow, Rogers also became friends with the game's Russian author Alexey Pajitnov. In 1990 he helped Pajitnov move to the United States and set up a new company, AnimaTek, to develop new computer graphic technologies.

In 1996 Rogers moved from Japan to Hawaii, where he founded Blue Planet Software and The Tetris Company. Rogers founded Blue Lava Wireless in 2002 to develop mobile gaming software. The company was sold to Jamdat in 2005, along with a license to the mobile game trademark rights to Tetris.
