On February the 8th Adam Adamowicz passed away due to cancer. He was one of the concept artists working at Bethesda, and between his credited work we can find The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3.
To honor his memory the developer opened a webpage that you can find here, featuring his art, his creativity and the comments of his colleagues that fondly remember him.
Adam was obviously massively talented and, from the comments I read, a great person. Booting up Skyrim today to apply a few new mods, I couldn’t help but feel strongly that one of the creative minds behind that awesome game isn’t between us anymore, and, even if I never met him in person, that was definitely sad.
Yet, I also feel that his creative mind will live on in his work that we’ll continue to play for years to come (including an unannounced game that according to the memorial page is “many years off”), and that’s something that makes me smile a bit.
Our most heartfelt condolences go to Adam’s family and to his colleagues. If you want to see more of his amazing creativity, you can head to his own blog as well.
Goodbye Adam. See you in Sovngarde.
