We received news from Adventurespel that Bert Jamin has left us to go to his last adventure this February 13.

He has been ill for several years now.
Bert has written quality game walkthroughs and reviews posted at his now closed website - gamesover.com.
Bert has been a close friend of mine as well as of GameBoomers since inception. He believed strongly in promoting adventure games and is helpful and kind to any who reaches out for his expertise and friendship. His ethic is unquestionable and his warmth is real.
Bert Jamin was one of the strongest promoter and supporter of Adventure Games during its infancy until the present.

I already miss you Bert. I am privileged to have known you.
With all my love,
Marita & GameBoomers

Very sad news, Marita. Bert was a wonderful member of the adventure game community and his contributions were many.

May he rest in peace. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. He will be very much missed.

I am very sorry to hear this, and especially that he was sick for so long.
Bert's gamesover.com website was one of the first game websites I discovered. There were lots of good reviews and walkthroughs there and it was one of the best-looking, best-organized sites on the Internet.

Sad news indeed. I have known Bert and his work for so long, since before I even first joined Boomers ...

He was such a fluent, meticulous writer. His WT's are legendary and so beautiful. More importantly he was kind behind the scenes, always a loving and enthusiastic supporter of Adventure Games, their fans and developers.

I miss him. But I am so glad that I got to enjoy his work and his passion for the games for as long as I did.

Prayers and love to his many friends and his dear family.

My sympathy's also as another of what I consider one of the true adventure legends that wasn't a game maker has moved on. Makes one wonder what this passion of ours would have been like without the Bert Jamins of our world. Adventure Games are dying...literally. I Salute you Bert Jamin its been a wild ride.

Back in the early days of gaming, I remember often being transported to Game's Over when searching for a walkthrough for a specific game. I often ended up browsing Bert's very comprehensive site to look for titles of other games that I might find interesting. Bert was a true pioneer and a very good friend.

Thanks Mikael

I remember his site very well and I almost forgot about the old Adventure Games Coalition.
