GhostlyDeath (born July 6, 1989, 27 years old) is the leader of the ReMooD project.
The name GhostlyDeath has roots in StarCraft, based on the Terran Ghost's death as in death like a Terran Ghost. At one time, there were three people who have had the Ghostly prefix. He also goes by the name of KaptinKurk as of 2008.
GhostlyDeath started playing Doom95 in 1996 at the age of 7. In the year 2000, he became interested in developing his own levels for Doom. He started developing basic maps with DEU and learning how they worked through experimentation and examination. Later on, he modified DEU to create Doom II maps, but stopped working on it after he discovered WinDEU which had such an ability. In 2001, he discovered Doom Legacy by searching "Doom Online" in a search engine hoping to figure out a way to play Doom95 over the internet instead of a modem. In 2005, after attempting to rediscover Doom Legacy since it was deleted, he searched the same phrase. Instead of getting Doom Legacy, he got Doom Connector instead. In December of 2006, he started the ReMooD project, a Doom Legacy modification. Throughout 2007, the project switched from different bases, but in 2008 it stayed with Doom Legacy. On Friday, May 30, 2008, he joined the Odamex development team, however on Friday, January 16, 2009, he left the team. He also started the Simple Doom Editor, but later handed it over to Blzut3 and Evan. On Wednesday, June 24, 2009, he rejoined the Simple Doom Editor project.
On July 3, 2011, he resumed work on ReMood.
