Developer Biography

Daniel Warren Forden is an American sound programmer, music composer, and the lead on several high-profile arcade and pinball games. The most notable he has worked on is the Mortal Kombat fighting game series.

Forden is best known for an easter egg that first appeared in Mortal Kombat II, where Forden's head would appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen and shout "Toasty!" when a perfect uppercut was performed. Certain events, usually involving Sub-Zero, would make him appear and shout "Frosty!". There were many gamers who saw him for the first time in Mortal Kombat II but thought that he was actually saying "Whoopsy!" because they were doing badly or because they had messed up a combo.
