This is terrible, and since he stayed out of the Ocean experience, there are nothing left from him :/

Sad. Never knew the man but I'm sure I played a couple of games that I wouldn't have if he hadn't been around and in charge.

It was only two days ago that I went through the rather massive video that Kim Justice made on Ocean Software's licensed games :/ Prolific indeed.

Was there anything in the History of Ocean book by him? My memory may be playing tricks, could be just he was mentioned by other people in it

Why is it terrible. A lot of people that did better things died much younger.

I only just noticed that two founders of Psygnosis also passed away late (Nov/Dec) last year. Ian Hetherington & David Lawson. RIP to them also as I missed the posts here for them.
