Mark Haigh-Hutchinson

image I was sorry to hear today that Mark Haigh-Hutchinson passed away. Mark worked at LucasArts back in the old days, and was very sharp programmer, not to mention a super nice guy.

For some reason, this is the first memory of Mark that pops into my head: We’re both in the Lucas mini-kitchen, getting coffee, and I’m complaining about how I threw my back out somehow. And before I know it, Mark is on his back on the carpeted hallway, showing me how to stretch your lumbar muscles by hugging your knees to your chest, and rolling around on a hard floor. Previously I had thought Mark Double-H to be a shy, reserved person, but here he was rolling around like an egg, trying to help me fix my back. The move itself can be a little embarrassing to do, but I’ll admit I still use it whenever my back hurts.

So for that tip, and for Metroid, and for introducing me to Miyamoto that time at E3 when I was too scared to walk up to him, I say, thanks to you, Mark!
