i've not actually PLAYED the games I bought from them, mind, but I still liked having them there...
And I'm baffled, too, because I got the latest promo emails from them this week. So... huh?
Even more odd - there was literally ONE DAY between them eagerly exhorting people to buy their newest game and a vague farewell message.

There are rumors that this is some kind of crazy marketing stunt to intentionally get people upset so that they can ride a press buzz onto a relaunch.... but it's just rumor.
As expected, it really was just a PR stunt. I am not linking their stupid video because I'm too annoyed to watch even a silly video with monks in it.
