It's a shame his life ended that way...

Alec was curt, but an absolute creative genius. He was someone who managed his personal demons and still got somewhere in life. I can honestly say I've always looked up to the guy.
Aquaria is a game that got me into modding, into graphical design, and even got me interested in game design. Despite never officially having shown it, he accepted and even encouraged the degeneracy I made 10 years ago. That's the kind of guy he was.
I had sincerely hoped that one day I could've made a game together with him, even if it would've been the smallest and silliest of things.

Bizarrely, on the day I found out about this a drawer broke that contained the Aquaria CD I bought, with a signed "Thanks! : )" on it. I will cherish it as long as I exist.


Thank you, Alec. For all of the misery you've battled through, having made it this far, and giving us incredible things along the way.


I will not start a discussion here regarding the messed up way he went (or rather, got forced) out, but I feel the need to definitively say that society has failed Alec. Miserably so.


While it's awful circumstance to see you all again, I hope you are all doing well. If life is hitting you hard, feel free to contact me, even if you see this message years later. Life is always worth living.

P.S: As an sidenote: Due to people revisiting the forums again, I have gone over my generous 25MB Photobucket bandwidth limit, and decided to remove my useless Photobucket account. However, I haven't been able to change my avatar back.

RIP Alec. We never met, and the chance has passed. Yeah, he'll be missed.

Also, re: illness, this article by Scott Benson (NITW) has some extra insight.
It's always so much more complicated...

Let's just keep him in good memory. Like this:

I just heard the news today.

Aquaria was the first indie game I owned and this forum was the first internet community I joined. Alec struggled with mental illness and it caused as much pain to others as it did to himself. He will be missed nonetheless.

Hey FalseGenesis, sorry to interject in the wrong thread but I don't think my pm's are working. If you ever get a chance to respond in the support section please let me know. Thanks  Smiley

We're there and we're not dead! (And we're on IRC too, as usual)
Just busy with life, PhD,  those things. Send help.

EDIT: And if anyone feels like helping out re-building the modding wiki (the old one is defunct), feel free: https://github.com/AquariaOSE/Aquaria/wiki

Hi!
Checking this forum periodically is back on my to-do list! It seems that the action is, well, dead. And understandably so.

But still: is anyone still here? Does anything yet live?
Is it,
    are we,
             past saving?

Huh, so is the chatroom on irc or Discord then? There are still people in the irc.
