Well this is sad. My condolences go out to his family.  :~(


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.

Same here. At the very least, I'd want all of the project files to be released, so that perhaps someone somewhere could either finish it off, or at least admire what I had done.
But that's just me.
I'd feel the same, at least if I knew people would try and finish the original vision. Wouldn't most artists want their work shared?

Wow, this is such a shame.  I never knew Ghost beyond his forum posts and such, but always admired him and his work.  He had a unique vision and a great talent.  I always felt he would be someone in the community that I'd like to meet and share a few words with.

So sad.  I send my best to all who knew him, especially his friends and family.

I just read this. So sad to hear. I haven't chatted with him in a long time, but I was a big fan of his art and we once discussed collaborating on something together. RIP. :(

I never interacted with him, but he seemed to be very much loved in this community. But a close family member of mine happened to pass away on the same day and everything around those days was a bit of a blur, so I never got around to posting my condolences here in due time. I'm truly sorry for your loss, all of you who were close to him.

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.

Hi Icey. Man, what a great message. We should all aspire to be as encouraging and thoughtful as this. What a loss.

This is awful news.  He was a super talented gamemaker and artist, and a great person...RIP Ghost.

That's incredibly poignant.
