<forumuser name="DeanSatan" /> Dean Sitton (known on the Sonic Retro forums as DeanSatan) is a developer known for his involvement in the conceptual phase of the original Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Mega Drive. He was responsible for conceptualizing the name Dr. Ivo Robotnik, as well as the names of multiple Badniks from the US version of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Scene involvement

On January 14th, 2009, Dean Sitton created a
Sonic Retro
on the Sonic Retro forums, revealing his involvement in the Sonic the Hedgehog game series and offering to answer various questions from fans regarding his involvement in the franchise. Among the information revealed were the different badniks that he was responsible for naming through the US localization, as well as general advice on SEGA's policy regarding fan-created concepts and materials.

Sitton attributed his poor typing in the thread to a "broken keyboard"; whether or not this could be confirmed as true is yet to be seen. However he has stated that the broken keyboard is now a "memory", meaning that he no longer has it. Even so, his typing is still sometimes sub-standard.
