A SPECIAL NOTE
As most of you will be aware the Founder and Convenor of Dissecta, Tim Richards passed away on the 21st of October 2008. Tim lost his battle with severe pulmonary hypertension due to congenital heart disease shortly after receiving a transplant but not without putting up a strong fight which was true testiment to his character. Tim will be sadly missed by his family, friends and the games industry as a whole.
It is on this note that we ask for your continued support through donations to the Alfred Foundation which can be made during the Dissecta event. We are working to further establish facilities to recognise Tim Richard's extensive work in promoting and supporting the local games industry and his dedication to supporting the organ donar campaign. Please check back soon as we will be posting updates.
