I was just kinda randomly wondering... Wether the IVAN devs ever noticed this site? Why (not)? If so, why haven't they left a message or something?

Kahvi used to come on our IRC channel. However he has sadly been gone from there for a long while. I'm pretty sure that wherever he is if IVAN is still in his head it is way behind whatever he is doing now in real life in importance.

Kahvi is also registered to the forums, though I'm not sure if he's posted anything... He said he would love to attend the operation:Invade Erno's house with some of the other devs.

As for what happened to IVAN, well, it's the usual story. They simply lost interest and their life changed gradually to such a stage where they didn't see each others as often anymore, and you know the rest.

Maybe they're dead. Ever think of that?

All of them? I'm pretty confident not even half or a quarter of them are dead. Mostly since the impression I've gotten is that developing roguelikes is a 20/30-something gig, not something you do when you are 60 or older. Much more likely that they found some real-life activities like a regular job, taking care of family, and stuff like that which was more fulfilling/necessary than working on a roguelike.
