Robin-Yann Storm used to be a game designer, a level designer, a scripter, modeller, environment artist, texture artist, and used a lot of tools during all those different jobs. Realising that tools should improve he became a freelance tool designer, helped design some Unity level editors, did a talk about how UX in tools is important, and then got hired to work full time as a Tools Designer at Io-Interactive, making sure that users are happy and their work flows gracefully.
Io-Interactive, a Square Enix Studio, is the creative force behind some of the most talked-about multiplatform videogames to emerge in the last decade. Starting with the praised and ground-breaking Hitman series, Io-Interactive has since developed the cult classic “Freedom Fighters”, the controversial “Kane & Lynch" series and the adorable "Mini-Ninjas". Dedication to creating original IP and unforgettable characters and experiences are the hallmarks of Io-Interactive.
