I’m sorry to report that John “overcode” Hall passed away yesterday; Johnhad been battling skin cancer. He was the author of Programming LinuxGames, and a great friend. The staff of LinuxGames extends theircondolences to his family and friends.

Messages to John’s family and friends can be posted to his blog; you can read how to aid the fight against cancer @ the American Cancer Society site.

St├ęphane Peter has posted his memories of John at his blog.

Ryan Gordon has also posted a good deal of information regarding his experiences with John at his .plan.

    I spoke to overcode on irc on a number of occasions. Great guy, easily the strongest will I’ve ever seen in anyone.

    No-one should have to go like that, that’s really sad.

    I fondly remember talking with him online about his book and helping him and others over at Loki Games with their issues with Utah-GLX- along with trying to come up with the next RPG (Yeah, like that ever came into being… :-) . Never knew he was fighting cancer. Wonderful man. Excellent developer. He will be missed.

    linuxgames should have a section on the left side of the site labelled: “Fallen Heroes of Linux Gaming”.

    Link it to a page that lists all the brothas of linux that we have lost – and what they did 4 linux gaming.

    Add john since he wrote one of the few books on linux gaming.

    Add other people that have done stuff for linux gaming that are no longer booting.
