RIP Ghost
« on: 29 Dec 2019, 14:25 »
I'm sad to announce that Ghost has passed away.


Link to German obituary page: https://www.aachen-gedenkt.de/traueranzeige/bjorn-ludwig/56101378


Even though he was not active for some time anymore, he was still a highly valued member of the community. He delighted us with tons of games and wonderful drawings as well as being just a great guy. I am glad that I had the pleasure to collaborate with him on a few occasions.

I like to believe that he is indeed a ghost now, watching us while baking cakes and arranging furniture in a RAM house.

Farewell, Ghost!

That is indeed very sad news. Hope that he's at peace now.
I'm happy to have had the opportunity to meet and interact with him, even if only online.
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Eulogy for Ghost
 
Once upon a time
You found yourself
In art
And adventure games
 
You are a Ghost,
The chance of the dead
To be alive
With your blue cup friends
 
Once upon a crime
You were taken from us
But you will stay with us
In our hearts
Through your art
And adventure games

Farewell, Ghost

Oh man, that's really sad to hear.
He had such talent and skill, and contributed a lot to the AGS community, even if he would leave for extended periods. I didn't really know him, but it was always good to see him around.

I hope at the end he could look back on a life that was more good than bad, more joy than pain. And I'm sure he'll live on in the memory of his family, friends, and those of us lucky enough to have had a chance to experience his work.

I will never forget the excitement in sharing projects, ideas, suggestions, plots for our games, plans for our lives, GUIs, betas, drawings, dreams.
I will never forget the affectionate words as a friend, the encouraging ones as a mentor. I will never forget your stories: sweet, somber, delicate, deep and touching.

The regret of not having met you in real life is immense.

Words cannot express what I'm feeling right now, the body is but an outer covering for the soul.
The reality is the soul which never dies, but just changes form. So, we know that in some way, you will always be here around us.
I am reading all your messages that we have written to each other back in 2014, you have taught me a lot of things about Ags that I am still treasuring all your words.
All of this it cuts to my heart, words cannot express my condolences to the entire household. Rest in peace my friend.

Very sad news. RAM Ghost is still one of my favorite non-adventure AGS games. He was always up to chat about game and puzzle ideas or just to share doodles. He will be missed.

Plus he made a RAM ghost wearing a cow costume.  :cheesy:

I still love Chance Of The Dead. The walkcycle and the giggle of the main character - a zombie - are hilarious.
 

I am unable to write a blurb but maybe it would be a game worth to become the next 'pick of the month' ... in loving memory of our beloved family member, friend and mentor?

Once Upon A Crime is a very good one, too ... and there are others

So sorry to hear this sad news.   :sad:

I never really knew him - think I only spoke to him a couple of times.  But he was indeed very talented.

I especially loved his game Chance Of The Dead. 

And his posts in here shows what a kind guy he was. 

My heart goes out to all his family and friends. 


Tabata, I support that idea.   :smiley:
Possible blurb for Chance Of The Dead (unless someone else can think of something better)?

Incredibly sad news indeed. I still remember when I found his homepage about "Daemons in the Attic" and just a a year or so later he decided to use AGS and joined the forums. And it makes me very sad that his unfinished work will never be finished anymore.
He was truly a great artist and game designer.

RIP Björn, I will miss you.

I see he was making a game called Collateral Jelly, which I presume wasn't finished. It would be nice if possible, if someone reached out to his family and obtained the code etc for his game, and try and make it a more or less complete game and release it.

I don't know if that's something he'd want, but I know it's something I'd want if I died before finishing a project and it had a decent amount made.

Did Ghost make the BASS style template that comes with AGS? I am currently using that for my latest work.

Same here, and his work helped me a lot in mine.

I was also following him on Deviantart, and his pictures of fairies and mermaids were always a joy to behold, and it's a terrible shame that he left so suddenly and so soon.

Rest in peace, Ghost.

It's been a while since I've checked into the forums and it's sad to come back and see that a member has passed on. For some reason I had the push to check out my messages (I guess it's been so long that I forgot there was a game he helped me out on. I wanted to go read messages for it but what I came across was something even better, yet bittersweet).



It was really uplifting and motivating to look back on this message. While I have switched to pretty much primarily doing videos now and I know he did like the last video I shared here, it makes me wish I actually had finished that one game so he could have gave it a try.   :~(

RIP Ghost and thanks for the good vibes, mate. Hopefully one day I can actually finish that game.

Hello guys, just want to express my sadness regarding Ghost's passing away.

In truth Ghost (Bjoern) was important in my life in ways that only now I understand.

Some of you may remember me from the forums, I was a bit of  a arrogant prick, a person I'm not proud of, although I now understand it was part of growing up as a person which I did and therefore am capable to show up and man-up to the occasion. For anyone that cares, I apologize.

But this isn't about me. Back then I'd already left the forums and game-making, I had a young kid and decided to become a artist, a painter.
Ghost was this guy that I could talk regularly about a few things, about his art, my art, the forum and people here.
He was so kind and polite. Always.
Ghost was very supportive of my art and always encouraging me and saying that I could make it and was very talented, all things that I didn't actually believed because my confidence was not very high.
Then, in 2014, we decided to change portraits, we would swap photos and each would paint a portrait of the other in the medium we wanted.
I was working with pastels at the time, just before starting with oil paints and so I did it. A portrait of Ghost shipped to Germany and Ghost loved it.
Strangely I found Ghost's confidence a bit faded then and he never sent me my portrait although he said he had done it with his Magic Pixels.
We kept talking once in a while, less and less I admit. Life takes turns and we all have our different lives.

Anyway, what I sad discovery I made today reading this topic. Such a gentle person deserves a place in Pixel Heaven. Rest in peace my friend.

Hi there Stupot and Mandle, nice to speak with you guys.
No more game-making for me, but this forums will always be part of who I am so I tend to check it out from time to time.
Let's honor Ghost, probably one of the last good guys.
Working on a RON game!!!!!

It's been a while since I last checked the forums, so I missed this. I saw a tweet about Ghost being remembered at the AGS awards this year.

It's very sad news. I didn't know him particularly well, but we talked a few times and discussed collaborating on a game. He was a lovely, friendly guy who always had positive things to say about people's work. Also a talented game developer and artist in his own right.

I am sorry to bump this but that is a fruit of my itinerant ways. Miguel, you needn't apologise :)


Ghost, I remember you as one of the first AGSers I interacted with. I would wonder from time to time what you were up to, and how you were doing. I have been through our PMs together, and your words of encouragement and kindness are just extraordinary. Had they not been so at such early stages, it is quite possible that I would not have grown the interests I have now. Although I never met you, this news has made me truly sad. Thank you so very much.

Ghost had always been such an embedded presence within the community, it's hard to imagine. Condolences to his family and friends.

Wow, I saw this thread only now, so sorry for bumping it. We were not close friends with Ghost, but I've been a huge fan of his games (especially Once Upon A Crime), and we chatted in private a bit back in the old years, so it's a real pity to hear that.

May you be happy on the other side, Ghost...
