The guy is really pathetic for doing that. Using death as an excuse to get out of a project is very ignorant and disrespectful. If he didn't want to do the project anymore then all he had to do was say so. There was no deadline on this game other than him saying it was going to be done in 2006. There would be a ton of people out there willing to help out with the project given the great head start he already set up. (From the footage he released it looked very well done) .I don't understand why this kid would do something like this to the internet community by staging a death.
