This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Tiny Adventures: Wha' happen'?
« on: May 28, 2010, 07:58:28 PM »
Anyone else have Tiny Adventures totally disappear from Facebook yesterday?  I was reading a few posts or something and decided to check back on the progress, and it was completely gone from my games and applications lists.  No notice, no warning, just completely gone.  The Facebook pages for it are gone, too.  Google still has the links, but they just dump me back at my own home page because they no longer exist.  There are exactly two posts on the WotC forum lamenting its disappearance.  Shouldn't there be a hue and cry with news or rumours flying around the interwebs?  I was under the impression it had a huge bunch of players.

The wiki indicates that WOTC has unceremoniously scrapped the game.

No surprise. In terms of WotC's MO, I mean.

I must have been on the wrong page, I didn't see the notice at all.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.  It had an external wiki, other pages on Facebook, a bunch of followers, and it was magnitudes of order better than other Facebook games.  I can't say it was the most fun I have had all year or anything, but it was amusing in many ways that other games are not.  A few minor tweaks to make it a bit more interactive and the choices more meaningful and it could have been the next Farmville, honestly.  No endless recruiting your friends to play in order to actually play a passable game?  WIN.

I tried it for a few days and it seemed to be just another game that played itself with little input from the user. No big loss here.

Yeah, I don't think I kept it for even a day.  There were tons of Facebook games that kept me distracted better.

I was surprised people were still playing it...=P

Sure, it definitely could have used some improvements.  It was not much more than Progress Quest with prettier pictures.  Still, it was light-years ahead of Mafia Wars, Farmville, Vampire Wars, and the other thousand exact clones with different names that require you to endlessly pester your friends to keep playing.

To be fair, I didn't really waste my time with it either.  I used it for a couple of hours, so it as a pointless non-game and removed the app.  Done and done, no harm, no foul.

I really enjoyed Pinnacle's Rippers app until 1) I removed all the Facebook time sinks (and started getting more stuff done) and 2) I apparently had caught up with the game's development, because I just kept cycling through the same four or five missions.

Having tried that game, I have to ask... how do you know when you're no longer playing?

Guffaw!

Remember folks this is just part of Wizards of the Coast's ongoing string of victories in information technology based products for Dungeons & DraAHAHAHaahah....sorry, I couldn't get through that without laughing.

Seriously, how does a company based out of fucking Washington State manage to fail at every turn on the technology front?  A company that is attempting to pull in some of those sweet, sweet WoW profits?  Is there NOTHING they don't completely fail at?
