Damon Slye (born June 15, 1962) is a computer game designer, director, and programmer. In 1984 he founded Dynamix with Jeff Tunnell in Eugene, Oregon. He is best known for creating the historic flight simulations Red Baron, A-10 Tank Killer, and Aces of the Pacific.

Slye's first product was Stellar 7, an action game for the Apple II which featured animated 3D wireframe graphics.[1] He followed it up with Arcticfox, the first original title Electronic Arts published for the new Amiga computer.[2]

In 1994 Slye left Dynamix and the game industry, saying that he wanted a "sabbatical" to study math and physics as well as "playing chess, and skiing, and playing basketball, and doing a lot of reading", but expected to be "building products again" in a year.[3] He founded Mad Otter Games in 2007.[4]
