Jon Hare

Jon Hare hit 45 today. If I knew where to find him, I'd buy him a pint. Raise your glasses to a great man who was behind some of the best games released on the Amiga and other platforms at the time.

Agreed. Happy Birthday Jon!

Anyone involved in a game I still play to this day, Cannon Fodder, deserves a pint.

Jon Hare is a true legend and has some CV that's for sure - Sensible Soccer, Cannon Fodder and Wizkid alone are impressive enough. If we all knew him he would never have to buy a drink again

And is it true he supports Norwich City? If so that's the icing on the cake for me

C64 yes, Amiga....not exactly technically stunning was the output of Sensible...made Amiga games look like toys from the C64 days

I hope for your sake that you're being ironic.
