The death of Nintendo's CEO, Satoru Iwata, at the age of 55, in July, triggered a wave of heartfelt tributes from gamers all over the world.

As Marc Einstein, head of digital media at Frost & Sullivan in Tokyo, told the BBC: 'He was very much known for being a gamer first and a [chief executive] second - a game changing figure.'

Scriberia's creative director Chris Wilson was quick to volunteer himself for scribituary duty on this occasion. 

A scribituary is, of course, Scriberia’s own take on the obituary, and they give us a chance to do what we do best. As a specialist animation, 
graphic facilitation and illustration agency, we believe in the power of pictures to tell stories and connect people to content and its context.
