Skill City has officially announced today that it will be shutting down operation of its tournament engine indefinitely, in addition to freezing development on new titles and closing down its public servers. We gave it the best try we could. In the end though, despite having created a really slick and robust technology, we couldn't keep up with the bills. Hey, selling your house and cashing out your 401K only gets you so much traction before you have to seek funding, and for us it never materialized. With around 3.5 thousand registered users we hate to call this a failure. Our games and our system speak for itself, and with the number of "multi user puzzle game worlds with avatars and virtual currency!" we see being advertised to children today it's clear that we were in the right place at the right time. Lots of interested parties spoke to us at tradeshows and conventions but the majority just wasted time pumping us for information with no real intention of dealing with us. Sadly, we cannot afford to float this boat any longer. The game servers will remain up until our hosting company pulls the plug. Give it a try, maybe you'll like it. In order to attempt to recover some of our costs I am offering the entire Skill City source tree, to anybody who wishes to purchase it. With that code you are essentially able to run the entire Skill City operation. We would also entertain purchase of our original game designs and assets, etc. Call me. We still cling to hope that Skill City will live on, even if it is with a new Mayor. Hopefully a deal like that would come with a job for yours truly, since I too am now unemployed. It was a crazy journey starting a video game company, we learned a lot, and the experience we gained is truly priceless. Maybe the talent I have here will land a development contract with another company and be able to keep this little city rolling... We do still dare to dream.
