Simon Cutajar

Hi! I’m Simon Cutajar!

[pronounced sai-muhn ku-tie-yar]

I’m a 29 year old games designer and developer from the sunny European island of Malta.

I’m currently finishing up a PhD in Computing at the Open University in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, where I’m working on automatically generating musical transitions for video games. I completed a MSc in Media Technology and Games at the IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark in 2013, and I also hold a B.Sc (Hons) ICT from the University of Malta, completed in 2011.

I co-founded Kvasir Games, a games company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. I also founded GameDev.com.mt, a website that serves as a central hub for game development in the Maltese Islands.

I’m very much into playing games as well as developing games: I enjoy playing digital RPGs, strategy games, and point-and-click adventure games on my PC, as well as board games and tabletop role-playing games with friends. I normally take the role of the dungeon master when playing role-playing games, since I love worldbuilding and tinkering with new designs and ideas.

My professional interests include game design and development, procedural content generation, computational creativity, educational games, music, and artificial intelligence.
