Video Game Music Icon Geoff Follin Has Passed Away


Tim and Geoff Follin were known for creating memorable video game soundtracks in the ‘80s and early ‘90s using basic audio technology. Their work included games like The New Zealand Story, Terminator 2, Spot: The Video Game, Solstice II, Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge, Plok, and Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball. If you were a gamer during that era, you were likely familiar with their catchy tunes and contributions to the gaming world.



The Follin family’s love for music began at home, with their mother and grandmother playing the piano and inspiring Geoff and Tim to explore different instruments. While Tim pursued a music career, Geoff studied Environmental Biology at the University of Nottingham. Geoff later joined Software Creations in Manchester, following an invitation from his brother, marking the start of a remarkable partnership. However, Geoff left the video game industry in 1995 after his involvement in “Batman Forever.” Despite leading a healthy lifestyle with no smoking, limited drinking, regular exercise, and a healthy diet, Geoff tragically battled pancreatic cancer, a silent yet aggressive disease. Tim stresses the importance of supporting pancreatic cancer research and the urgent need for a cure. Our thoughts are with Geoff’s family and friends during this challenging time.
