The Story

Wednesday, May 20, 2015 after visiting the doctor for a migraine, Mike learned that he has a glioblastoma, a rare and highly aggressive form of cancer.  Mike was rushed into emergency surgery, the doctors did everything they could surgically, but his primary tumor is inoperable.  Mike has undergone radiation, and while involved in a clinical trial at Fred Hutch/UW underwent a bone marrow transplant and chemotherapy.  He is now looking into additional therapies. This process is mentally, physically, and emotionally grueling, but this has not stopped Mike’s unconquerable spirit and positive outlook.

If you worked with Mike on Shadow of Mordor, Gears of War I and II, Fable, Media Center, Zune, Conker, or Perfect Dark Zero you have experienced his positive energy, passion, and unfailing support.  Mike has always been the first to volunteer, getting in earliest in the day and the last to leave at night.  You know that he’s always been there when you needed him.

Now Mike needs you.

Mike and April have three beautiful children, each amazing in their own way, smart, talented, and compassionate.   Mike needs to know that his family will be ok, and that you stand beside him in this fight.  Your donation will help cover the medical expenses and securing the future for Mike’s children.

Hello Forthog Orc Slayer Supporters,

To everyone who has shown support to our family, we want to say thank you! Thank you from our family, and thank you from our friends. The outpouring of love, support, and generosity has been overwhelming. We have felt so much love throughout this difficult time.

We wanted to take a moment to say thank you, and to try to give something back. As many of you know, music and games were an intrinsic part of Mike's life. He wanted to reach as many people as he could through the things that he loved. He would be so very happy and proud that he has touched so many.

Just recently, many of you have seen that his co-workers memorialized him in the game "Shadow of War", that he was working on when he passed. In the video they used the song that he wrote, sang, and produced with some of his dearest friends.

We want to share with you one of Mike's last contributions to this world. Finishing this album meant a lot to him and his band. We hope you enjoy this song as much as we do.

Please go to to freely stream and download "Back Home"; the song that accompanies the Forthog Orc-Slayer DLC. There is not a way to make a direct link to "Back Home", this is by no means a way promote the album, we just want to show our thanks. We hope that this demonstrates a sliver of the gratitude we would like to express to everyone whose lives were touched by Mike in some way.

Thank you,

The 4G Family
