Ruan Pearce-Authers is a game programmer currently working for Crytek GmbH. In 2009, he began managing Crytek's development community, and providing technical support for CryENGINE users. Prior to this, he was active in the Crysis modding community himself, and followed this up by producing sample projects and additional tools for the Free SDK. He co-developed the CryMono engine extension to bring support for .NET to the CryENGINE, and the Tanks game sample written exclusively in C#. At present, Ruan works as part of the development team for Crytek's award-winning entrance, into the free-to-play market, Warface, in Frankfurt.
