City of Steam is closing its doors for good

We can’t blame them for lack of trying – after one shutdown in November 2013, City of Steam: Arkadia is closing down for good sometime around the end of January 2016. This MMORPG had some good things going for it but never managed to stand apart in a highly competitive world. Mechanist Games, the developer, said that one of the biggest factors for this decision was the “decline of Unity support in the browser is one of them – Google Chrome no longer supports NPAPI plugins like the Unity Webplayer, and Microsoft’s next browser, Edge, won’t either.”

Mechanist Games is now changing focus and is working on a mobile action RPG, Heroes of Skyrealm, with a release planned for mid-2016 in iOS and Android devices. If the idea of having your own airship seems interesting, head over to the official website to learn more about the game.

    The MMO was rather crappy, but they certainly nailed it on the lack of Unity support. Google is purposely hindering PC support for Unity so as to buff up their Android game market.
