Participation has dropped precipitously. When was the last time you played it? Zynga must overjoyed with these numbers in lieu of having just bought the company for over $200 million. I wonder if Draw Something = Zynga as MySpace = News Corp.

38 Studios, Curt Schilling’s game studio & producer of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, shut its doors effective immediately today. Even after moving over 300,000 units the first month of release & talk of an MMO, looks like they weren’t able to pay back the $75 million they owed the state of Rhode Island. (Who knew states got into the funding video games business?)
While this means that there’s probably no plans for any KoA:R DLC on the way, but maybe I can find a cheap copy of it soon. The demo was actually really fun, especially if you like smashing boxes over & over. WHICH I DO.
Poor Curt Schilling, though in the end I guess poor Rhode Island. That crummy state* just can’t catch a break.
*I don’t know anything about Rhode Island. It’s most likely very lovely.
