I'm a little late with this one, but on the 4th of February the Cinemaware Press Relations Facebook page announced the sad passing of Cinemaware's Ken Melville.
The press release from Cinemaware's Press Relations reads;
"It is with great sadness that we announce to the Cinemaware community and gaming press the passing away of Ken Melville.
Ken was one of the most creative (and funny) guys we have ever collaborated with, and he was giving us great input during the Wings RE development process. Ken was one of the writers and composer of the original as well as the writer on It Came from the Desert.
We will miss him and honor his memory during the development of Wing RE. He truly was one of gaming's heroes."For further reading please visit this thread on the Cinemaware Press Relations Facebook page.
Perhaps it's time to fire-up It Came From The Desert in celebration of Ken's life.
