Robotoki offices almost burgled: Rob Bowling confronted robbers, footage inside

Thursday, 9th January 2014 09:21 GMT By Dave Cook

Robotoki – the studio set up by former Call of Duty creative strategist Rob Bowling – was almost robbed last night. The studio head confronted two men in the office lobby before posting photos and CCTV footage of the perpetrators online.

It follows a police raid on the Robotoki studio in June, after someone accidentally hit a panic button.

Speaking with Polygon about the attack, Bowling said, “At around 7:20 pm after all the staff had left, with exception to myself and our lead FX artist, two males approached the front door of Robotoki and hit the security glass with a rock and began kicking in the weakened glass.

“I began running towards the lobby from my second floor office as soon as I heard the rock hit. I confronted the two males in the lobby, where only one had gained entry.”

Here’s a clip of the break-in:

Bowling revealed on Twitter that the robbers smashed their way into the office after 7pm last night:

He then posted a photo of both men:

What do you make of the above then? Not your usual gaming story by any means.

    That door looks pretty flimsy when they were breaking in and with all that glass and that iMac in plain view with little security, I’m not surprised someone tried it.
