REally, really sad news... But with internet we should wait to be sure that this is real. I still hope that this is not.

Simon Quincey here. I have to tell you it is very true. I have now posted a more official message on both the facebook page and the warblade website.

I always assumed Edgar is in age like us, about 30-40. And he died now because of cancer... oh my god, what a nasty illness. Very sad news.

R.I.P Edgar. I loved Deluxe Galaga and Warblade to bits and backed Warblade MK II.

Very sad I remember that he was switching to Unity 3D for ease of development. Pretty sad news he wrote good arcades games.
RIP
