Attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, David Lindsey Pittman started professional development at Stormfront Studios, where they helped in sound engineering for The Spiderwick Chronicles, an adaptation to the movie released that same year. After a brief stint at Gearbox Software, Pittman then settled with developer 2K Marin, to work on the BioShock franchise, as well as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. That studio was later hit with massive layoffs and Pittman pursued a career in indie development instead.
Co-founding Minor Key Games, together with their twin sibling, J. Kyle Pittman, the two have worked mostly separately on releasing games. David has since produced a notable indie roguelike, Eldritch, as well as other games based on stealth action, such as Neon Struct and Slayer Shock.
Pittman is also involved in the creation of The Blackout Club at Question.
