Mark Roll of course, sorry and thanks for the correction :). Thanks folks, those are good hints, maybe it will help to track him down. I'll email MobyGames.

Primal Rage in 2008? That must be impossible, as just appears on that page and was added today. It must be an error, a remake of a Fighting game in 2008? And the last game of Teeny Weeny Games was on 1996.

Primal Rage appears everywhere as developed by Atari Games but not by Teeny Weeny Games.

Yes, I wrote something to that effect about 3 posts above. Makes me wonder why a page like gets automatically updated with current date though.

I've just created a facebook group, which maybe a good place to place all the information on finding the last developer (lol, new title 'Mark Roll - The Last Developer').

Anyways, I felt like this could be a good idea to list postings, discussions etc, in trying to find Mr. Roll.

The url is: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10792802349


If anyone wishes to be an officer, just ask. Hopefully, making this group can be of some help to finally getting Discworld a place on the ScummVM supported games list (also thanks to the ScummVM team, to there un-surpassed effort into supporting these great games).

What's the advantage, compared to using a wiki? No, I will not sign up with facebook for that.

No real advantage, just a different medium. I wasn't asking for you to sign up with Facebook, just simply trying to help. Additionally members here that are already Facebook members too, might find it useful (the old proverb 'every little bit helps' might suffice here).

OK!

I contacted John Young today, to see if he has contact details for the elusive Mark Roll. Mark doesn't work at Sony anymore, unfortunately, but... John has spoken to Mark about this a couple of days ago, and Mark was ok!

John will pass this (& other?) info along to the project in a couple of days, but he's been really busy, so he didn't get to it yet, and said I could pass this info along, so here it is. I'll post this to the dev-list too, as soon as the confirmation email gets through.

Your awesome!
Id managed to find out that Mark was no longer at SCEE Liverpool and had been promised that he would be informed but to hear that directly from John is great :)
Thanks

You will inform you all, once something concrete happens. In the mean time, please just be patient. We waited several years, surely a few extra weeks won't hurt anybody :)
