Erick Wujcik, whom I was fortunate enough to call a friend, passed away quietly Saturday evening.
I met Erick at Ubisoft Shanghai, where he was the Game Design Studio Manager. Erick was a man like no other: a true master of game design, and a lover of the imagination. You could see where Erick went by the blazing trail of inspiration and dreams he lit on the way.
Erick died from pancreatic and liver cancer. The doctors had given him 4-6 weeks to live; he lived for six months, and passed away quietly, surrounded by friends and family.
Farewell, Erick. I am grateful to the Universe for making our paths intersect.
