downWorld will be closing September 1st, 2013
Yes, you read it right. downWorld will be closing coming Fall of this year. I’ll answer a few of your questions regarding downWorld.
The company who created downWorld (and ourworld and vegasworld) is called FlowPlay. FlowPlay created downWorld in 2011, but development slowed to a halt in the beginning of 2012 due to lack of players. downWorld wasn’t making enough money.
Okay. So you’re probably wondering, “Sooo Skye. WHAT HAPPENS TO MY PLAYER?!!” Well to sum everything up in one sentence, YOU LOSE EVERYTHING! You will no longer be able to play downWorld. Your character’s data is erased. And all the time and effort you spent making your player “Elite” is now gone. But here’s the good news, you can always go outside and breathe a breath of fresh air. You’ve accomplished a lot.
So now what? I’ll keep this blog up for as long as possible, or until we sell the domain name. And who knows? Maybe someday downWorld will rise from the ashes and they’ll come out with an even better game. Until then, thanks to everyone who supported downWorld. You will surely be missed.
What are some of your favorite moments in downWorld?
