R.I.P. Florian Hufsky, 1986~2009
« on: December 17, 2009, 07:53:00 PM »
While some of us heard about it in the morning, we were just now able to confirm it..

http://florianhufsky.soup.io/
http://metalab.at/

.. I really don't have much more I can say. This is just.. crushing. I barely knew him, but now I wish I took more time to try to know him, considering that if it wasn't for him, we probably all wouldn't be together on this board.

Anyway, considering this, it's not exactly the best time to say it but.. now the forums have to be moved as well. No telling when it'll happen, but once the hosts get word, it'll go down faster than you can imagine.

I don't know what to say about it, it's just...  heartbreaking
And you're right, nobody would be here without Flo

I don't think even Super Mario War would be here without Flo. Tigsource's community has said this was a great loss to the indie game community. He influenced a lot of people, including us.

Hats off to you, Florian. May the angels guide you to that big green mushroom in the sky.

It's so sad that he's gone. But I hope the progress of Super Mario War (and/or Puit Wars) will still continue.

We'll miss you Florian, all your efforts in making SMWar are appreciated very much...

It is unfortunate that he had to leave us. He will be missed.

Horrible news indeed.

From the times I've actually seen him around IRC, and this forum, he was a cool guy.

I wish for the best to his family and friends, and I hope that all his projects will still have strong support.

Damnit, why did you have to do it man? Why? Who's going to continue Puit Wars now?
This really just sucks. We're going to miss you Florian. ; ;

Times today are just as bad what with the video game market being made up of 80% first person shooters that are 80% brown and 20% black and 100% bloom.

Goodbye, old friend. You were one of the few on here no one could hate or disrespect.

You will be remembered wherever this community goes.

So he's not here anymore?
What a pity.

Let him rest in peace and remember all his awesome projects and everything else he did for the community.

:cry:
My SMWar supermarket, check it out! (don't bother looking... the links are dead and so is the supermarket, I'm just keeping this here for archiving purposes)

The only time I ever had any contact with him was IRC sometimes but it was really rare, but it still saddens me.

However, there's one quote of his that really got stuck in my head:
Quote from: "Florian"
the music in the menu is wrong. instead of the classic super mario war tune, it's some weird porno-esque shiggy-shiggy remix. wtf?

Rest in peace, man.

Heh. Hats off to you man, especially a green one with a star. It makes you feel all sad inside even though none of us talked to you on a personal level.

Dude...   <:|

At first (when the forum was down) I thought that 'dead' meant 'hasn't posted in a long time'-dead. But, now that I know that it means... Well, DEAD-dead... Rest in peace, dude.  :cry:

Like most of the people here, I have not known much about flo and i havn't talked to him much, either, except for some small conversations on msn...

and also, like most of the people here, the fact that he's dead now has left me in shock and disbelieve.

We would not be here without flo, I owe him all the countless hours I spend in this forum, this community and of course in super mario war, may it be playing the game or creating content.

Flo, i whish that you would still be here, but i hope that you are on a better place now.

A great mind and creative person left our world. my best wishes to his family and friends.
Requiescat in pace Florian Hufsky.
