The games industry has been paying tribute to the developer of Coffee Talk, Mohammad Fahmi, who has sadly passed away aged 32. The cause of death has not yet been disclosed.
The news was broken by the game’s official Twitter account:
Since then, tributes have poured in from other developers:
While the narrative adventure game Coffee Talk is his most famous creation, Fahmi’s career included a stint at Gameloft, as well as working as a managing editor for Tech In Asia Indonesia.
Fahmi left Toge Productions in December 2019 after Coffee Talk was released, starting his own studio called “Fahmitsu” and working with Pikselnesia on What Comes After. His next project, Afterlove EP, was recently shown off during an Indie World presentation.
Our thoughts are with Fahmi’s family and friends at this difficult time.
