Simon Franco was a dear friend and colleague to many here at CA who sadly passed away last June. He was a Senior Programmer on Alien Isolation as well as having worked on many Total War games over his 10 year employment with us.
Simon was a big Magic the Gathering enthusiast, with a passion for creating retro games in spare time as well as being a dedicated father who sadly didn’t get to meet his youngest daughter before he passed. He was positive, kind and always had a time for anyone that asked for it.
In order to commemorate his life, work, and passion for retro gaming we’re hosting our second annual weekend long GameJam in his honor.
FrancoJam will pit small teams of CA staff members against each other in a two day contest to create a whole game, with a theme that will be announced at the event.

We’ll also have a live stream running alongside the event as well as a charity auction with tons of exclusive goodies so stop on by and support a cause that is very close to our hearts!
