Hiroshi “Mr. Dotman” Ono, celebrated Namco designer, has died at age 64



Longtime Namco graphic designer Hiroshi Ono, often known as “Mr. Dotman,” has died at age 64.  His passing comes after a protracted battle with autoimmune hepatitis. 
The information of Ono’s passing was shared on his social media accounts. Ono impressed a devoted fanbase due to his work on traditional video games like Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, and different traditional Namco titles. 
His work not solely included designing the varied sprites on a few of these video games, but additionally designing the artwork that might be used on arcade cupboards and marquees. 
Ono retired from Bandai Namco Video games in 2013, and spent a number of years connecting with followers and contributing to different initiatives just like the remake of Cosmic Cavern. A month earlier than his passing, Ono and his collaborators had begun crowdfunding a documentary about his life. Supporters have already raised 4,888,592 yen (about $42,791) for the movie’s manufacturing.
