Goodbye, fellow traveler.

Yesterday, March 27, we very suddenly lost our partner and dear friend Paul Pepera. System Era is in mourning today. Paul’s family has traveled to Seattle to make appropriate arrangements. They have asked for privacy at this time.

Many knew Paul in this industry as an artistic tour de force. His talent left an imprint on this game industry that inspired countless others. He was one quarter of our founding team, and a boundless source of inspiration and beauty. Most of all to us, he was a warm and compassionate close friend.

Somewhere, maybe a star burns a little brighter. Safe travels, Paul. We miss and love you.
