are there others on here that knew about Kain's "secret facebook profile" or was I lucky enough to be that close with him that he let me in?  It's more like an alias or alter-ego in a way.  No personal photos or anything like that, though he would post a comment to me from said name, then jump back to Kain and have an argument with the alias HAHAHA!!!  He really was a comic genius!

 

 

I was friends with him on that one. I think he kept it around to speak with his father primarily.

 

I consider us lucky, he took the time and effort to tell us about that profile and talked to us on it.  I really wish his "real" one wasn't deactivated.

I must have been on sabbatical from here over the time the spoiler tag adventure was posted. Played through it for the first time last night and had multiple hard belly laughs..

Goddamn, I'm digging through his old posts and there was just... SO much gold.

This is so beautiful on so many levels. Wow.

 

Holy shit HE made that??  Classic!

 

Oh man, we've referenced and used this so much over the years! I had no idea it was Kain's work.

Next DoD month is gonna be Kain Tribute. If you remember any game that he liked, played a lot or that can be associated with him in some other way, please add it to this list.

 

If there are games he probably didn't like but could or used to laugh at, add it to the Alts section. (right now it's games that he worked on as a tester at Ubisoft and MMX2)

 

I'm fairly sure he worked on Deus Ex Human Revolution too, and talked about it here.

 

In addition, he was a huge fan of metroidvanias in general.

He cosplayed Alucard right? I would assume then that he liked SotN. And he was trying to make a vgm project name mashing up Opeth with Onett from Earthbound, but I'm not sure if he was a big earthbound fan.

I'm super bummed his Facebook page is gone. I can't find the full version of the birthday card he made me, either from his Facebook page or the thread on the shizz. :(

check your Facebook PMs, all those convos are still there even with a deactivated account and if you sent photos to each other, they should be there, too.

 

Also, I never submitted to DoD, but I'm gonna do the Kain tribute.  I already have a song in mind and what to do with it.

 

I'm friends with him on PSN, I'll add the games he has to the list for the tribute album.

Hey everyone,

 

I recently moved the pictures I had onto a google drive spot instead. So that all you guys can add to it:
https://drive.google...bnZPNzBfVVFSdkE

EDIT: Google drive sometimes is really pissy. Let me know if it won't let you add to this folder and I'll mess with it.

I want you to add literally anything you have that makes you think of Kain.

-Pictures of him

-Stuff he made

-Jokes he did

-quotes you liked

-websites he did

 

etc.

 

Just anything. Thank you. 

 

I took a few days off the net to visit people here. Hung out with Erik, Grant and Travis. It was good to just sit down and talk. Remember the good times. It was very helpful. We're all in this together. If you're sitting around and letting this eat you up, reach out to people. Maybe we could all get on a hangouts/discord/skype call sometime and just talk. Maybe thats good for the Kain month listening party. Just pile in. But for now, don't suffer alone, if you are.

 

Also: I was specifically asked if there was anywhere to send flowers or donations or anything. Will (8bitX) wanted to do something for his family. I think I read that translated message said to donate to another cause he liked? If his family wishes we don't send them anything, thats fine. But I was asked.

 

Love you guys.

the translated version of his obituary indicated that charities that were of interest to him were the Children's House on the Island of Montreal (could someone who knows french better than i do verify?  the closest thing i was able to find reference to was this site: http://www.lamaisondesenfants.qc.ca/ ) or the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

I confirm. Both of those are correct.

Repose En Paix.

 

Well now "Boulevard Lacroix" which is the main boulevard or my town is going to have an additional meaning.

I always wanted to try one of these.  Now I have to.  There's a restaurant in Philly called Lacroix.  It's in the fancy part of the city.  In the words of Homer Jay Simpson, "Very la de da."
