I'd hate to shift the topic towards this, but the review section on that flash right now is the reason why we need separate comments and reviews sections.

Regardless, this was a nice flashback for a nice guy. RIP.

I just read this comment posted on "Aidan's Wonder" by sticksoldier on May 22, 2010: "Welcome back :) Glad to see you aren't dead..." Made me shiver a bit.
RIP, korded.

At that time he wasn't dead. But now he's dead. And he didn't know he would die. No one could predict when his life would end. No one can predict how and when each of us dies. Death has its own, mysterious ways.
May God accept his soul into heaven, and let's hope it was ready to enter at the moment of death.

He wrote back:

Hey, appreciate the comment, thanks,

I do plan on releasing a new game, currently partly done actually, but need to push it through the last leg!

And thus, I believe he could have been referring to this:

  • Aidan's Wonder mini demo
    Aidan's Wonder mini demo by korded

    Play as young Aidan's imaginary friend and explore together to find treasures & adventure!

Another Beloved fallen. Thoughts go out to his family, and to all his friends that knew and loved him. all these animations and stuff that shaped my formative years in highschool leaving so young. i imagine Banning and Spurgin are having drinks in the ether.

R.I.P to Chance and all that Newgrounds have lost

I'll be honest, the only thing I saw/played from the guy was skullkid, but I remember plain as day having mountain-loads of fun playing that game. It was absolute carnage for me back then when I first played it, and I replayed it thousands of times after that. Wonderful music in that flash too.

It's a shame hearing him go though, and it saddens me to hear that he's gone. Had I been reminded of the skullkid before his death, I would have definitely gone to replay it and check out his newer stuff too.

May he rest easy.

This makes me sad. The Skullkid was the very first game I played on Newgrounds long ago with my first account.

I remember playing skullkid over and over just to complete round 2 with full health. The 3-D furniture splitting effect still is amazing.

RIP Chance Banning.

Skullkid was one of the first flash games that I ever played on here, and I was probably too young back then to be playing it. The fact that I still remember it today tells you something about how good it was for the time. Fly high, Chance.
