This makes me sick to my stomach. It's awful. I recently found out that I know someone who is good friends with the guy.

Two points: First, a team makes a pinball game. The designer is ultimately responsible for a few key elements. However, don't disrespect everyone connected to this guy, or their products. Second, innocent until proven guilty. It would be perverted to convict and damn him prematurely, especially given the limited and preliminary information.

I have a Ghostbusters pin. I love it. It has nothing to do with this situation. I wish John Trudeau and especially those who knew and worked with him, justice. Hopefully, for everyone, he is a victim in this case and not the perpetrator.

However, I agree that it looks really really bad.  :(

He made some damn fun games. Didn't know he did Ghostbusters but that one is surprisingly good, too.
