This is Mary Cheney, Aden's mother, typing this note. I am sorry to announce that Aden committed suicide on November 15.
He left his workplace without notice and hiked to a nearby highway, where he was struck by oncoming traffic and was killed instantly.
At his workplace, he left a note saying that he is sorry to everyone who loved him and cared about his creative endeavors, but that he will go to a better place.
He asked that we would give his followers notice via this Newgrounds account, as well as to link to it on the Discord servers he was part of. We will not delete these accounts, as he wished that they would remain as an archive of all that he has done.
We are truly heartbroken and left speechless by this loss.
