    Those of us who follow the casual gaming world knew this was coming, but now it's official: PlayFirst will no longer be developing games for PC / Mac. They will be shutting down their website and creating a new one.

    IF YOU BOUGHT DIRECTLY FROM PLAYFIRST, be SURE to download your installer files and save your unlock keys somewhere safe!

    If you bought your PlayFirst games from a portal (ie. Big Fish), there's no need to worry - you will still have access to your games, as the portals will continue to sell games developed by PlayFirst.

    The following post is from the e-mail I received from PlayFirst.

    Dear PlayFirst Fans,

    We have a special announcement to share with you today.
    After an amazing 6 years of developing PC and Mac-based
    computer games, we have made the decision to discontinue
    the production and support for these titles. Although you will
    not be able to purchase any of our PC/Mac titles from the
    PlayFirst website, third party retailers will continue to sell our
    games. We will be releasing a list of official retailers shortly.

    On Monday the 12th of November, we will be launching a
    brand new website. In order to avoid losing your digitally
    purchased games, we encourage all of our players to
    download and store a copy of their unlock keys and game
    clients somewhere safe. To do this:
    • Head over to https://www.playfirst.com/secure/unlockkeys.html
    •Download the installer files for each game you would like to keep.
    • Screenshot and/or write down your unlock keys.

    The PlayFirst customer support team will continue to answer your
    PC/Mac questions until November 11th. If you have questions
    regarding any of our PC/Mac games or encounter an error after
    this date, please check the PlayFirst Knowledge Base for
    information on how to fix them.
    Any additional questions regarding your products should now be sent to the company from which you bought the game. If you have any questions regarding the transition and/or how to access your games, feel free to consult the dedicated knowledge base article. For any matters not covered, our customer support team can assist.

    While it was a hard decision to discontinue production and
    support for PC/Mac games, we feel it is for the best. We have
    established a firm position as one of the leading producers for iOS mobile applications and are currently working on implementing our games into the Android marketplace.

    We cannot possibly express how much we appreciate the support from our fans over the past 6 years, particularly the PC/Mac community. We understand this may be a hard transition for some but we promise our new games will be bigger and better than ever!

    — The PlayFirst Team
