Edited from the Game Maker forums.

With sadness we had confirmed by friends that Shawn Noel, alias Shawn64, passed away this week at the age of 17.

With his imaginative, picturesque and innovative games Shawn has always been an inspiring member of our community and an example to many. The premature death of this talented game maker no doubt comes as a shock to us all. With him, the members of this community, like online communities elsewhere, lose a creative energy - and many also lose a friend.

Shawn is known for many successful games, among which Infection, Mini Golf Pro and the Jetz Rampage games (four in the series). His latest release was Street Bike Fury. He also maintained a website at http://shawn64.com.

Our thoughts and wishes of strength go out to Shawn's family and friends.

The GMC Staff

You will be dearly missed by everyone, Shawn.

In memory of Shawn Noel.

What a shame. His games were a lot better than mine can aspire to be. RIP Shawn
