    Aged 35. Really shocking to hear this news. My thoughts are also with his friends and family. :(

    This is awful news... Just have seen his Wii talk of 2008 on YT a few days ago. He's one of the godfathers of the Wii homebrew scene for me..
    He had such a nice and kindful expression.
    may he rest in peace :'(

    Can you link it here? I think it deserves to go on this thread.

    Just sad. Even if the newer members here don't know who he is they should pay their respects.

    That's so sad, I still remember looking up to him and marcan so much back in the Wii days. He was a very inspiring person.

    Thanks for all your work and RIP.

    That's a very sad news, 35 is too young, for a natural cause or not.
    I didn't know him personally, but he is one of the people who brought us (developers and hackers) where we are now with his work, his team and advises.
