Developer Biography

Damon Slye started creating computer games back in 1977, on a teletype. In high school he wrote some games just for fun on the 8K Commodore PET, including a version of Mastermind in seven lines of Basic.

His first published game was Stellar 7, released in 1983 on the Apple II. He enjoyed the challenge of writing graphics and 3D code that was fast enough to run on a one megahertz chip, and fit in 48K. Later he was facing similar challenges on his first title for Electronic Arts, Arcticfox, for the then soon-to-be-released Amiga.

He also co-founded Dynamix with Jeff Tunnell in 1984 where he designed and directed a dozen games over the next ten years. They ranged from 3D action games to modern and historic flight simulations. The Great War Planes series included Red Baron, Aces of the Pacific, Aces over Europe, and A-10 Tank Killer. He left Dynamix and the industry in 1994.

Since 2007, after a 12-year hiatus, Damon Slye is back in game development with the company Mad Otter Games Inc. which he formed with a number of people who worked at Dynamix.
