We’ve been informed via the Bluepoint Games’ Facebook page that former Metroid Prime 1 & 2 Lead engineer and co-founder of Bluepoint Games, Andy O’Neil has passed away. He was 47. Cause of death was not announced. Andy was an Austinite, like me.
We at the Metroid Database pass on our deepest condolences to Andy’s friends and family and are eternally grateful to his countless contributions to the Metroid series.
