According to a post by veteran MicroProse artist Matt Scibilia in a Facebook group for former employees, Darklands creator Arnold Hendrick passed away this Monday on May 25th. Apparently he'd been struggling with terminal cancer for some time. He was 69 years old and is survived by his wife and family.
interviewed Arnold Hendrick back in 2012, with a little help from Obsidian's Josh Sawyer, who is a huge fan of Darklands. He was also a guest on Matt Barton's show back in 2010. More recently, we'd enjoyed following Arnold's various musings in Darklands' Steam discussion forum and had been wondering where he'd disappeared to recently. While it's unlikely that his passing will be noted by many outside hardcore RPG communities such as ours, the legacy of Darklands may yet live on.
