David J Edery: Biography

I am the co-founder and CEO of Spry Fox, a game development studio focused on making the world a happier place. Spry Fox has developed several hit games including Alphabear, Steambirds, Triple Town, and Realm of the Mad God. Collectively, Spry Fox’s games have been played by over 50 million people worldwide.

Before Spry Fox, I worked for Microsoft as the Worldwide Games Portfolio Manager for the Xbox Live Arcade platform… back when digital distribution was still a novelty.

While at Microsoft I also co-authored a book called Changing the Game: How Video Games are Transforming the Future of Business. The book explores the inventive ways that games are helping companies to connect with customers, to attract, train, and motivate employees, and to boost their productivity. Notable press reviews can be found here.

I received an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 2005, and a BA in English and American Literature from Brandeis University in 1999.
