While it feels like more and more games are moving to Facebook, one developer has announced it’s making the great leap away from the social platform. Starting June 16, Spry Fox confirms you’ll need to find somewhere else to play Triple Town – and the studio has a few suggestions.
A public statement (on Facebook, of course) reads:
This was not an easy decision for anyone, but Triple Town’s Facebook edition has not been financially successful for many years, and our ongoing efforts to support and maintain it are detracting from our efforts to make new games for you.
If you want to continue building tiny little towns for free, then you’ll have to resort to your smartphone – Triple Town will remain available for both iOS and Android for the foreseeable future.
…if you’d prefer a desktop experience, there’s an option for that, too. Any gamer who has spent money on the Facebook edition of Triple Town will claim a Steam key for the game on either PC or Mac. That version typically retails for US$10, and Spry Fox says it is “nearly identical” to the social media version. The catch: You’ll need to make sure you’ve logged into your game account some time between now and June 16.
If you haven’t yet played Triple Town, it might be an idea to hop onto Facebook, boot it up and see if you like it. After a few rounds, you’ll be hooked, we promise.
