In-game developer message, presumably from Simon Carter

Simon Carter was Dungeon Keeper's lead programmer.[1] He is the brother of programmer Dene Carter.[2][3]

He worked on creature navigation, 3D lighting routines, and in his words: 'spent a number of years writing and organizing 800,000 lines of code'.[4] Well before the game was redesigned, he developed a 3D sound routine with Tony Cox.[2]

Earl Simon of Tulipscent is likely named after him.[5]
