I've been playing Secret Files: Tunguska recently. Its inventory based puzzles are reminiscent of the old Roberta William's Sierra games. The reviewer took notice, and described how old this gameplay is by saying it was getting old "back when Roberta Williams still roamed the Earth." I'm pretty sure she is not dead, and still roams the Earth. In fact, it seems that her and Ken Williams are, in fact, roaming the Earth; they travel a lot now. Anyways, hope someone else finds this amusing. It'd be nice to know who wrote the review, so they could know that they prematurely posted her obituary.
The statement is in the first paragraph of the review of Secret Files: Tunguska, here on Gamespot.
