Even the biggest ones have to meet their manufacturers. Facebook is ending support for Flash games, including the original Farm Ville, December 31st. Now is your last chance to experience the 11-year-old game in all its seedlings – provided Flash Player does not give you any problems.
Farm Ville is one of the first browser-based games that is gaining universal popularity and generating over $ 1 billion in revenue thanks to its millions of daily users. It is also a crucial part of Facebook’s early development strategy. Anyone on Facebook from 2009 to 2015 remembers the intrusive, endless notifications and invitations from playing friends and relatives, along with the rise of just apps on Facebook that generated revenue by stealing and selling user data.
Sorry, Farm Ville, but your legacy is forever linked to users’ privacy scandals and addictive freemium game design. We hope you enjoy eternity behind the pearl gates – or wherever you end up. Of course, this is not the absolute end Farm Ville, as Zynga plans to release again Farmville 3 for mobile devices later this year.
Farm Ville players can make purchases in the app until November 17. Facebook removes Farm Ville and all other Flash games from its website on December 31, the same day that Adobe terminates support for Flash Player. Just think, some dedicated Farm Ville The devil will play the game until its last moment on New Year’s Eve.
