Rob Fulop

Developer Biography

Rob Fulop was one of the video game pioneers, working on Atari titles in the early 1980s. He was also a member of the all-star development team brought together to work on games for the eventually cancelled NEMO console with VHS tapes, and that led to his involvement with the games Sewer Shark and Night Trap, both based on full-motion video. In 1991 he set up the company PF Magic that was the first to introduce the concept of virtual pets for people to care for, with the release of Dogz: Your Computer Pet in 1995. It formed the start of a long-running line of Petz series.

Currently he works as a consultant for various video game companies. He has been a member of the indie rock band Bourbon Therapy since 2015.
