    They're cult classics - great games that never reached a wide audience. Try them out, they're worth it.

    Without this guy we'd've only had 25 letters in our alphabet, and an awkward gap between C and E; R.I.P.

    Can't say I've really heard of him or his games but to pass at such a young age is a tragedy, and I'm sure his games made an impression on some.

    Here, this is probably the best way to explain his work:



    He also produced a game called "Real Sound: Kaze No Regret" for Saturn (ported to dreamcast) that was the first (and probably only) console video game to be made specifically for blind people, with no graphics whatsoever. just sound.

    :( I'm a huge fan of D-2 for Dreamcast. I will always remember him as the guy who made me fight a chicken-legged old lady with dual Uzis. -Fun Times! :grog: Rest in peace, bruh!

    I thought the thread title was incomplete...
    but I now realized there is actually a game called D.
    Never heard of it before!

    Hmm... we've lost a good guy here. R.I.P Kenji Eno

    42?! I mean you were really young!.. D-2 was such a piece of a great game.. a cult like others say.

    Developers like this will be missed
