Biography edit · view history

Danielle Bunten Berry (February 19, 1949 – July 3, 1998) was an American game designer and programmer from St. Louis, Missouri. Born Dan Bunten, Berry underwent what she always referred to as her "pronoun change" in the early 90s. Some of her aphorisms are still frequently quoted by game developers, including "No one ever said on their deathbed, 'Gee, I wish I had spent more time alone with my computer.'"

In the issues 2.4 (July/August 1982) to 3.4 (July/August 1983) of Computer Gaming World she had a regular column in which she discussed the design of simulation games in detail. More articles were released in later issues.
