David Doak is an Irish video game designer. Doak first worked with Rare where he helped develop the critically acclaimed Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64. In fact, his facial likeness and name were used for a scientist, Dr. Doak, in the former game. This character even plays a key role in the game's second mission.
Doak later left Rare to help start Free Radical Design. From there he worked on the hugely successful video game series TimeSplitters and two other video games named Haze and Second Sight. He has worked alongside the specialist video game composer Graeme Norgate numerous times.
After Free Radical descended into Administration, Doak began a new company named Pumpkin Beach.
