Legendary Sound Designer Jory Prum Passes Away At 41 (designingsound.org) 62

New submitter loren writes: It is with much sadness that I report that legendary sound designer Jory K. Prum, who worked on more than 120 video game titles, passed away April 22, 2016, at age 41, from injuries suffered in a March traffic accident. (Disclaimer: I am a long time friend of Jory and his family.) Here are some personal recollections from family, friends and colleagues... Also, a list of his game credits are on MobyGames. This post doesn't do him justice, but I found news of his loss conspicuously absent on Slashdot.
Back in 2006 a Slashdot article about the game Bone apparently drew a comment from Jory himself ("Funny, I'm recording the dialog for Bone 2 right as I read this!") and in 2004 the same account weighed in on an article about long hours at Electronic Arts. Wikipedia also reports that in 2001 Jory created a voice for Pixar's Oscar-winning short "For the Birds," and in 2014 recovered the aging audio for the classic point-and-click adventure game Grim Fandango.

    Im sorry for your loss bud. It's always painful when someone you know dies in such a way. Don't let these unknown basement dwelling neckbeards spewing their misdirected hate ruin your memorial. May he rest in peace.

  • You mean motorcycle accident. Every Spring there are tons of deaths as guys pull their motorcycles out for their first Spring ride.
    • Confirmed, motorcycle accident (says Eurogamer.net, says Wikipedia): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... [wikipedia.org]

      Leaving aside the potential quagmires of "traffic accident" vs. "motorcycle accident" and the "legendary" characterization, I'm happy take a few seconds to express my condolences and gratitude for his creative contributions, which I've enjoyed without ever prior knowing who to credit.

      fortunately, in recent years, the first spring ride is only the day after my last winter ride.

  • For the idiots here who have found the time to post but no time to respect talent outside their own field --- Prum's credits include some of the best work we've seen from Telltale Games. Tales from the Borderlands. The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among Us, Tales of Monkey Island, Sam and Max and so on. Jory K. Prum [imdb.com]
  • ... on "Star Wars Yodas Challenge Activity Center" and "Poker Night 2".
    He will be missed.

    I figure he had some humor too.
    RIP!

      Reading your sig, and your other posts, you need to know that your English is better than most native speaker's English.

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
