SNES Omnibus Contributor Spotlight #6 - Rob Strangman

I’ve never met Rob Strangman in person, but I hope to at some point in the near future. From corresponding with him online, and from reading his stories in the SNES Omnibus project, I surmise that he’s a personable and genuine dude, passionate about the industry and about his friends and family. Rob is a veteran writer about video games, and I’ve read and enjoyed a ton of his stuff in the long-running Digital Press fanzine. His magnum opus, Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman, is one of my favorite gaming books, thanks to its nostalgic bent and personal stories.

Rob Strangman is the author of Memoirs of Virtual Caveman, a book about his experiences growing up during the “golden age” of gaming. He’s a regular contributor to both Little Player magazine and the Digital Press fanzine. Rob first made a name for himself in the online classic gaming community in 1998 with his website The OPCFG, then later went on to found the Splatterhouse fan page, West Mansion: The Splatterhouse Homepage. Due to his work on West Mansion, Rob was asked to be a consultant on gameplay and authenticity for the 2010 video game, Splatterhouse (PlayStation 3/Xbox 360).
