I did not know him nor his flashes, but he was an NGer, and every day that a fellow NGer dies is a sad day for all NGers.

RIP Ben Spurgin

Newgrounds has lost one of it's finest. I remember when I was a kid, screwing around on the site, playing his games. Rest in peace, Ben Spurgen, you will be missed.

It, unfortunately, seems like people are falling like flies these days.

Tom, I realize that you probably feel obligated to put the little "sad" emoticon up because of how happy your news pic and forum icon are, but it just doesn't seem sincere.
I think you personally need to have a way to make your pics unhappy (or maybe blank?) when you have horrible news.

RIP Ben.

no, i'm sure that if he died while choking on a kid's dick because he was molesting kids, we probably wouldn't have a lot of sympathy for him. so it's initially relevant.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. Losing somebody is never easy, especially when they're so young.

Rest in peace good sir.

This is sad news. I know I will miss Ben's submissions, since I was always a big fan of stick death animation.

If it's any consolation...heroin is a rather peaceful drug to overdose on as it makes you go to sleep and not wake up...
I never knew him and I'm sorry that NG has lost an artist. :(

I didn't know him but I watched his flash. I'm was sincerely sorry when I learned Ben had died. I know some of you probably think this is a hoax...I doubt it but I won't interfere with your conspiracies, I know some of you give less sympathy for ben and his family because of how he died. The world does not gain through a mans death, you shouldn't have less sympathy for someone just because they died of a drug overdose!
Rest in peace Ben, you may rest assured your family is in our prayers


Honesty is the best policy, except when its being done to you. :P

I can definitely confirm that it is not a hoax. i was friends with ben the last couple months of his life. He lived with a bunch of friends of mine, and two of them found him. None of us knew he was using, so it was a pretty huge shock to everybody. It's a sad situation and it's nice to see that a lot of people remember him, because he was a kind, awesome, funny, creative guy.

i was just coming here today to play games, but i couldn't resist posting about this since i knew him and was happy to call him a friend.

A bunch of people on a couple of pages said it was a heroin overdose; I don't know personally I'm just taking their word for it since no one is arguing against it as far as I can tell.

Sad times, we're losing artists left and right. I overheard my school cop saying this to a student getting expelled for drug usage: "Well, you fucked up, son. Ya fucked up good." That's all there is to it. He fucked up.

I didn't know the guy, and I didn't know anything about him. So I don't really care at all, but yeah, if you knew him then sorry for your loss.
