The gaming community has lost one of their brightest stars.
Monty Oum, an animator for Rooster Teeth, a Texas-based anime and gaming production company, tragically died yesterday at the age of 33 after having a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure. Rooster Teeth announced the sad news earlier today.
"Our friend, inspiration and co-worker Monty Oum passed away yesterday afternoon at 4:34 p.m. surrounded by people who loved him very much. Ten days ago Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure that left him in a coma. Although he fought bravely, his body was not able to recover. During his time in the hospital he was well cared for and never in pain at any time," the company announced.
