David Devaty is a video game programmer, formerly of Nintendo Software Technology, where he worked for 7 years from 2001-2008. Devaty's programming specialty was artificial intelligence; he served as the AI programmer for Metroid Prime Hunters. He designed, implemented and refined the AI and personalities of bots in the game's single player and multiplayer mode, intent on ensuring they matched the quality of those in first-person shooters on more powerful consoles. After leaving Nintendo, Devaty worked at 5TH Cell Media on the first two Scribblenauts titles, and then Gas Powered Games for an early version of the ultimately failed creation game Project Spark. He is currently working at Exato Game Studios in Seattle.
