Fergus McGovern has passed away

its with a heavy heart that I've to post about a great man and a great company, Fergus McGovern of Probe Software fame passed away suddenly, details are sketchy at the moment, but I'm sure more will be made clear in the next day or so. Information source : https://www.facebook.com/OceanSoftwa...916659733676:0

R.I.P. Fergus , enjoyed your great interview From Bedroom to Billionaires and loved the games that came from Probe Software.

Firstly this year, from Atari UK 's Les Player, then the great Dave Needle and now Fergus McGovern, very sad news indeed.

Sad news, Probe software did some great games and ports, Alien 3, Terminator 2 and the Mortal Kombat games spring to mind, and plenty of top games from the Saturn, PS1 era too Alien Trilogy, Diehard Trilogy and loads more, a great team of devs led by a top bloke, sad news.
