Sad news Never knew the man but he was still partially responsible for some happy (and less happy) memories

sad to hear, its around this time unfortunately that we will likely see many more familiar names of the older/original computing generation.

Even to this day, I still feel a bit of inner joy when I see the Psygnosis logo. R.I.P

Very sad about this. Discovered Psygnosis through their later games (Mostly PS1) and they are very close to my heart. Thoughts go out to his family and friends. RIP Ian Hetherington.

R.I.P. Very sad moment for Amiga users. Psygonsis created such awesome and interesting games.

I was an avid PC (IBM) user and their games helped me develop more interest in Amiga computers. Wow! What a wild ride it was!
