    Game Designer Kenji Eno Has Died at Age 42

    Kenji Eno, musician and game designer, passed away yesterday in Tokyo at the age of 42. He died of heart failure, induced by high blood pressure, reports The Asahi Shimbun.Eno was perhaps best known for the survival horror game D, released in 1995 for the Sega Saturn, and its sequel. He was also famous

    for his scores, and he composed music for his own games as well as games for other designers, like Sega Rally 2. More recently, Eno worked on iOS game Newtonica and WiiWare title Kimi to Boku to Rittai.

    Besides creating games and writing music, Eno also founded the game studio known as WARP, which employed a young Fumito Ueda, who would go on to design Ico.

    From creating unique video games to designing digital money payment systems for vending machines, Eno was involved in a variety of activities. He will be missed.

    Someone should give this man a controller at his funeral. Never stop playing!

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    A pause for thought and a selection on how to get the settings right for showing respect

    I hope his end came swiftly.

    Japan does have a reputation as a highly stressed society unfortunately; suicide rates are very high.
