On The Dot, LLC was founded by siblings Stephanie Balderrama and Robert Castillo in 2011. Robert, an avid gamer and recent college graduate, has been working in the field of cancer research for the last four years and was in the process of applying to medical school when the two started creating Adventures of Marvin and Mel. Looking for a way to generate funds for his medical school tuition, Robert partnered with his sister Stephanie, who works in the field of IT and has an affinity for drawing, to conceive and develop Adventures of Marvin and Mel: Word Rescue. This game is the innovation of Robert and Stephanie and the product of sibling camaraderie. The siblings agree, "Although this game started as a way to pay for school, it has turned into a project that has brought us closer together and given us a way to use our creative expression."
