Gamepopper (Tim Stoddard; born 1 April 1993) is an indie computer game developer and furry fan from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, UK. He has a degree in Computer Games Programming from Staffordshire University.
Gamepopper has attended various conventions, including instances of ConFuzzled (from 2011), Eurofurence (first in 2016), Just Fur The Weekend, Wild North and VancouFur; as well as a variety of UK meets, including BrumFurs, where he is the social media rep.
After gaining an interest in furry history after reading the book Furry Nation by Joe Strike, Gamepopper began researching British furry history, culminating in a panel held at ConFuzzled 2019. The popularity and positive feedback inspired Gamepopper to expand his research into a book, one that would cover not only how the furry fandom made its way to the United Kingdom, expanded to hosting plenty of furmeets and conventions and fostering its own well-connected community.
Originally under the working title of Furry Kingdom, the first draft of the manuscript was finished in mid-2021, and picked up by Uncle Bear Publishing at the beginning of 2022 under a new title of Furtannia: The History of the Furry Fandom of the United Kingdom.
After several delays, Furtannia was released on 22 June 2023.
