Project in trouble? Implode is gone?

Getting a bit worried as things aren't looking good. I've both emailed and messaged Implode/Nigel over the last few months and have heard nothing. In the past when we talked over email he'd normally reply pretty quickly.

Worst of all it says he hasn't even logged into this forum since 08/11/2016! That's over 3 months ago! Even if he decided after 12+ years of hard work to give up on the project it seems strange that he wouldn't even log in to see what's going on here. According to his user page on Sourceforge he hasn't posted on the Sourceforge IME page since 25/10/16 either, it doesn't tell me when he last logged in there though.

While I'm hoping it's just because he's super busy it doesn't seem like him to not login to his own site for 3 months so I'm starting to worry that something has happened to the guy! Does anyone have any alternative ways of contacting him (eg facebook) to make sure he's okay?

Good luck.. the one I've been trying is momime@hotmail.ca

Starting to worry the guy's been hit by a bus or something.. just doesn't seem right that'd he'd completely disappear after over a decade of endless dedication and activity.

He used to have more helpers and contributes back in the day so surely there's some old member here who has some other contacts details to try?

It's not looking good as it's been 6 months now. :(

Timing really sucks as Implode literally disappeared the moment I put up videos on youtube and promoted his game through a whole bunch of MoM communities bringing lots of attention, comments and questions. Even Seravy the guy behind the extremely popular MoM - Caster of Magic mod became interested and joined here. Now all they're gonna find is a seemingly dead project and no answers to their questions.

I've tried to find Nigel/Implode on facebook, Linkedin, twitter and even tried contacting a few old members here (including the translator you suggested) to see if they had an alternative email or something but I've had no luck. All we can hope for now is that he's okay in the real world and it's just taking a well deserved break from his project. *fingers crossed*

He's taken several months off before for whatever personal reasons, so that alone isn't worrisome to me.

Hopefully he can fix the issue of multiple music soundtracks playing all at the same time during hotseat games.
