RodKingz was created by AJ Loft in 2008. AJ is a Seattle University grad who has specialized in marketing kids licensed properties like Pokemon, Lion King and Harry Potter for many years. He currently lives with his wife and two boys in Canyon Lake, California.
AJ designed RodKingz with the intention of providing kids, like his two adolescent boys, a gaming alternative to current bestsellers like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty. He didn’t want his boys getting exposed to all the sex, drugs and violence common in these and many of the more popular games available today.
His vision was for a family values based gaming experience that was fun and more compelling and rewarding than anything else in the market. Oh, and one more thing- kids had to be able to play it anytime, anywhere. So, after he designed the board games, trading card games and dice games, AJ brought in his friend, Jim Tate, to design the digital parts of his vision.
Mr. Tate located in Colorado shares AJ’s vision for an innovative, family friendly game concept and has the expertise and experience to build all the digital gaming components. Jim is probably the best ‘digital designer’ and overall internet marketing guru in the country.
Our creative team has grown and will keep growing as we strive to bring kids the coolest and most fun gaming experience in the world. We’re committed to keeping RodKingz challenging, compelling and socially responsible, but RodKingz isn’t really about us. RodKingz is all about kids having fun.
