About the Episode

"We feel like one of the best things about a mobile game is that it can be relaxing at the end of the day, and to us, what felt more relaxing than just being able to kinda design these cool spaces, put pretty things in pretty places and make it look beautiful." — Jill Wilson


On the Being Home With Hunker podcast we have Jill Wilson, founder and CEO of Robin Games.


If you're wondering about the connection between mobile gaming and home design and decor, Robin Games focuses on a new genre of mobile gaming called Lifestyle Gaming — beginning with their debut of PLAYHOUSE, an interior design-focused mobile game. Basically, you're stepping into a moodboard where you get to design spaces with beautiful art and decor. Lifestylist enthusiasts, this is a game for you. And if you don't think of yourself as a gamer, Jill and her women-led Robin Games team are here to challenge your perception of a gamer.

In this conversation, Jill discusses her passion for providing more opportunities for women in the game industry; the love of games that she's had for her entire life; and of course, we get into how to play PLAYHOUSE: think designing spaces, getting feedback, rewards, and advancing to more projects.

If you love making spaces look beautiful, and, as Robin says, putting pretty things in pretty places, listen to our chat, and then go download the app and get to designing. It's a fun escape that'll keep you inspired.
