Digital Eel dev passes away - Omaha - Jan 14, 2012 04:18 PM

Folks, I've just learned that Bill "Phosphorous" Sears, artist of Digital Eel, passed away last night. Most of you probably know Digital Eel, but for those not so familiar, they are an Indie Mac dev that produces some of the weirdest games to play (such as Brainpipe: Plunge to Inhumanity).

You can get more info about the passage on the Digital Eel site, or my site, iGame Radio. There will be a memorial service planned for later, though no details have been set yet. And I'll be writing up more about Bill later this week, cause I think he was just such a cool dude! But I thought you should know now.

Sad. Thanks for letting us know.

I can't say I knew him before now, but it is indeed sad news.
