"Casual Collective? I haven't heard that name in a long, long time..."
Hi, I've just recently joined the Kixeye forums, but I've been around ever since the Casual Collective days. With the advent of flash being killed at the end of 2020, I just need to ask; Will the old CC archive ever be saved, or wil they just be left to, well... Pass on into memory?
Casual Collective's library of flash titles is an impressive one, and one I'd hate to see gone forever. If we could just get somekind of archive pack (a la ninja kiwi) I think there's people like me who'd pay money just to have a standalone steam release of the Casual Collective Classics.
Since yesterday, the servers are unavailable and we don't understand what happens.
I surrendered and tried to use FlashPoint (which, incidentally, runs a ton of other Flash games just fine), but all it says is "Unable to load game. Please notify www.casualcollective.com"
I arrive here to discover this thread of conversation, which seems to suggest (but does not decisively state) that Kixeye might be pulling the plug on all the old stuff.
If true, that's unfortunate. But it's not the first time I've lost a favorite game due to technology advancements. The unfortunate truth is that engineering durable code is expensive. As little as we pay for these games, we get what we pay for.
Perhaps it's time the gamer community steps up to the plate (seen above and echoed by me in many, many forums over the decades) and actually consider paying for games instead of constantly looking for free ones. Programmers need to feed their families, too, you know. : -)
Ah, well, it was a fun game. If it is truly dead, I will simply have to appreciate that it existed, rather than mourn the loss.
