Oh no! How sad.
I'd been wondering how Randy was doing.
I'll miss his reviews and sense of humor.

So very sad. When I first starting playing adventure games, I would always check out Randy's reviews to guide me to the best games. They were well written, very informative and often quite humorous. Now he is onto the ultimate adventure. My prayers for his family and those he left behind.

Randy was extremely helpful when I started making games. We maintained sporadic contact through the years, and he was always cheerful and VERY funny despite his constant battling with his disease.

I hadn't heard from him in a long time, and expected the worst.

The adventure gaming community will not be the same without him.

I will truly miss him! When I started gaming that was the first site I hooked up with, a true soul mate! Kind regards to his family!

Justadventure was my most visited site after discovering Myst many
years ago. His reviews pointed me to so many great adventure games.
I'll miss him. frown

Very sad. He was very generous and trusting when we partnered together on the JA+ store. Nice guy and I will always remember the lunch we shared at E3 one year. RIP Randy.

How sad. Justadventure was a site I visited on and off for his reviews for years. His writings were wonderful.
He will be sadly missed and my condolences to his loved ones.
