Born on January 29, 1990, Fahmi was a well-loved developer on the global indie game scene, both for his beautifully made games and his warm personality. Besides developing his own games, Fahmi has done programming and game design for various other games, as well as marketing and PR, speaking at gaming events as a representative of the Indonesian gaming scene, and writing short stories on his website.

Gaming community members around the world have been paying tribute to Fahmi since the news broke:

Coffee Talk was a hit, showcasing Fahmi’s talent for writing witty and touching dialogue, as well as his keen eye for pixel art design and engaging game mechanics. IGN Japan has reached out his review of Coffee Talk:

โ€œCoffee Talk succeeds in depicting daily life in modern Indonesia, which is reflected in the diversity of its people. The game has a calming atmosphere that will make you want to play in peace and quiet over a cup of coffee. The story doesn’t offer much drama, but the message conveyed by its creator at the end is penetrating and beautiful.โ€

At the time of his death, Fahmi was working on his next game, Afterlove EP, which Fahmi’s website describes it as “a slice-of-life adventure about love, loss and music”. A sequel to Coffee Talk has also been announced. What will become of the two projects is unclear.

Fahmi’s untimely death ends a promising career and deprives game fans around the world of the unique experiences that were sure to come. The editorial teams at IGN offices around the world extend our condolences to Fahmi’s family, his colleagues at Toge Productions and the fans of his games.
