Last week our dear friend and colleague, Adam Adamowicz, passed away. Adam touched the lives of everyone that knew him, and his spirit will live on in the games we create.
This week we put up a page so that everyone — family, friends and fans alike — can visit and remember him. The page includes memories and reflections from the team, plus a comprehensive collection of his work on Oblivion DLC, Fallout 3, and Skyrim. And as the introduction notes, you haven’t seen the last of his work.
We also encourage you to “squeeze the nun for service” by donating to the American Cancer Society.
With Adam’s passing, I’ve spent some time going back and looking at some of the stuff we’ve done with him — here on the blog, on The Bethesda Podcast, and elsewhere.
Fallout Official Site — Before Fallout 3 launched, we did several developer diaries. In Adam’s diary, he shared details on how his inspirations for the game’s vault suit, creatures, weapons, and more.
The Bethesda Podcast — A few weeks before Skyrim’s launch, Nick and I did a podcast interview with Adam and his longtime friend, concept artist Ray Lederer. No one at the office knew Adam better than Ray, and you can read his reflections on his personal blog.
Bethesda Blog — Adam did an early Inside the Vault interviews for Fallout 3. Even today, it’s a hilarious read. After I posted it, he emailed me and asked me to add this picture. I thought he was nuts, but I’m happy to add it again.
Rest in peace, Adam.
