Night Trap, Sewer Shark developer Ken Melville passes away

If you've ever played Sewer Shark or other beloved full-motion video games of the '80s and '90s, then you're likely familiar with Ken Melville's work. Today we regret to report the famed FMV developer and Digital Pictures founder has passed away at the age of 65.

Melville not only produced Sewer Shark, but he also created numerous other FMV games such as Make My Video: INXS and Make My Video: Kriss Kross. Melville also helped create the controversial Sega CD game, Night Trap.

By the late '90s, FMV games fell out of prominence. During the genre's heyday, Melville worked on over a dozen FMV games overall. Our sympathies go out to Melville's family and friends.
