Anyone Have Contact With AGS Member "Ghost"?
« on: 15 Jul 2018, 08:28 »
This is concerning an AGS member who used to be super-active around here and a very talented artist and game dev called Ghost.

I just read that he has deleted his DeviantArt page at some point, which now makes me worried about the dude.

I wasn't hugely close with him but the times when we did talk he was always a super nice guy and very supportive!

Does anyone have contact with him and/or know how he is doing?

He’s gone awol a couple of times before for quite long stretches but then popped back to say hello. Hopefully he’ll float in again at some point.

Last logged in Oct 2017.

His last post June 2016:
Crimson, if you can easily update BASS, by all means do so, I would be much oblieged. I'm in some pretty hard times at the moment and have dropped out of the AGS loop almost completely. No idea if, when, and how I could continue.

"Deactivated account"

These have been out of action at least a year, likely longer. I know this because I checked them myself wondering what happened to the guy.

Doesn't 100% prove he willfully deleted these accounts, but if he did give up on his hobby why go through the trouble? That is worrying to me as he clearly enjoyed it and is very talented.

I was just flicking through some of his previous posts to try and find s clue of how to track him down. Instead I found this in a post about Ashen, who similarly vanished before him. In his own words:

He's gone AWOL one day. I still remember him fondly. But well, it happens. Some people leave.

I also note that in his last post he says he was going through hard times. That’s worrying.

If you’re lurking, hope you’re okay, Ghosty.

I only know Ghost through these forums. He left here (quite awhile ago) by choice for personal reasons (which I won't share). Haven't heard from him since but, for what it's worth, the leaving was by choice and I got no sense of anything nefarious or worrisome. Just a fella who was moving on to other things.

Cheers for the stalking!

Loving those mermaids and this part especially made me smile:

Always gets me exited."
