Wow. K, I just got news that Shawn Noel (one of the top users of the program Game Maker, and known as Shawn64) just killed himeself yesterday, or the day before. I even had him on my Friends list on Xbox Live, and played Halo 2 with him. And my brother talked often with him on MSN.
Other users that were from the same school say that he was quiet, and his best friend was his mother And he seemed so happy online, where all of his friends were.
And there was only one thing that he said that may have been a clue, which was:
"errr dieing of old age would suck. well being old in general would suck.
something INSTANT where there is noway you could feel pain.
like oh say jumping off a bridge (or building). SPLAT your dead...""
I don't know if anyone here is from the Game Maker community, but it's big news there since Shawn made a ton of great games. I don't know when he joined, but I've been connected to the program and community for like...4 or 5 years... so it's a big loss
He just released a long-awaited game that I was asking him about, on January 3rd.... Atleast he didn't die before releasing it .... (ok, thats mean ).
Anyone here even know what I'm talking about? :icon_sad:
I wonder how his mother is doing
