Per Hale’s final wishes, CJ has made the developer’s games Waves (opens in new tab) and Waves 2 (opens in new tab) free to download on Steam.

“This was something Rob was considering anyway within the past two months as their health entered into more substantial difficulties,” CJ stated, “I hope this can be seen as a parting gift to all those out there that haven’t yet played either of these games.”
