Playdom plans to shutter Super Farkle on Dec. 31
Should we be concerned for Playdom? We don't think so; it appears that they're just culling out the games that aren't bringing in enough revenue to justify spending maintenance time on them. With huge hits like Social City and City of Wonder (not to mention being acquired by Disney) the company isn't going anywhere anytime soon. These game closures do say a lot for the state of social games though. If you don't have an enormous hit, perhaps creating games on Facebook isn't viable long term. We hate to see the on ramp for indie developers and startups who don't have the staff and cash to put a ton of production quality into their games, because big companies are closing down games that look and play very good.
If you want to give Super Farkle a try before it goes away forever, you can still do so.
Are you disappointed that Super Farkle will be closing down in December?Let us know in the comments.
