David Robitaille is a gameplay programmer from Casper, Wyoming studying game development and computer science at Michigan State University. The Game Design and Development program at MSU has been ranked as one of the best in the country, taking the #7 spot in the 2019 Princeton Review annual listing. He is expected to graduate in the Fall 2020 term.
David currently works as a programmer for the Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab at MSU, where he has been involved in several exciting projects. His favorite experience so far has been creating the artificial intelligence for Pluder Panic, winner of the Audience Choice Award at Indiecade in 2017. David and the team have been hard at work preparing the game for a 2020 launch on the Nintendo Switch.
In September 2019, David had the opportunity to travel to Uganda as part of another GEL Lab project titled BPG Africa. The opportunity to see the impact of his games first-hand is not something he will soon forget.
