RIP John Wilson

Today twitter informs me of the recent death of game designer and industry pioneer John Wilson.

Seems a lot of the first generation are passing away now… makes me a little sad.

Now I'll be trying to find a copy of John's classic text adventure Behind Closed Doors (1988; ZX Spectrum) for a little nostalgia trip. If you've not tried it, I'd recommend giving it a look. I believe it was the first 'escape room' text adventure, and had an astonishing number of sequels.

There is a thread about this over on IntFiction forum

Never heard of him. Sounds like I've been missing out.

I'm off to investigate!
