Also known as Breakdance McFunkypants, Christer Kaitila is a full time game developer, author, game jam enthusiast, amateur musician, proud dad and lead programmer at Amagam Software, an Indie Game Developer based in Victoria, Canada.
A lifelong coder, he grew up part of the old-school “demoscene” BBS culture and spent his youth in shady arcades. In university he studied AI and 3d game engines.
Nowadays he hangs out with game devs at speed-programming “game jams” and 48 hour competitions such as Ludum Dare, where he is one of the moderators and occasional host of game jams.
He has written over 50 business applications, a dozen videogames, 25 songs, two pencil-and-dice roleplaying games, and a billion really bad puns.
Author of a book on Molehill (Flash 11 Stage3D) game programming and currently working on a book about game jams.
