Developer Biography

In 1996, W.D. "Bill" Robinson became the documentation manager for Accolade, Inc., writing and overseeing the production of every end-user manual for every SKU created. Robinson was the first writer/editor to create documentation that passed through SCEA's notoriously tough editorial checkpoints with the manual for the PlayStation game HardBall 6.

When Accolade was acquired by Infogrames in 1999, Robinson became publications manager, charged with documentation for games produced in the Western United States, until his departure from the company in mid-2002.
