Miniclip has shut down all its online servers permanently except for 8 Ball Pool and Agario.
Today marks the end of an era as millennials bid goodbye to their favourite childhood website. The decision comes after much thought as the daily player count for the site continued to decrease, with more people inclining towards mobile games.
The rise of Miniclip
Miniclip came into being in 2001 and was an immediate hit as people all around the world opened the site to play free online games. It was the perfect place for teens and children to relax and have fun. They could open the site whenever they wanted to and play a variety of games.
The creators of Miniclip, too, ensured that they had games for all ages that suited various personalities. It had shooting games, cooking games and basically every kind of game that you can think of.
Miniclip has shut down
Over time, Miniclip has lost several players, and now the daily user count was so low that the company had to shut it down. The decision to shut it down was taken earlier this year. But, most people did not pay much attention to it as they didn’t think it would ever happen.
Well, now Miniclip has shut down, and it will never return. However, the company is not calling it quits completely and will be focusing on mobile games from now on. They will be creating and releasing mobile games to meet the requirements of users and stay up to date with technology. After all, their mobile games crossed 4 billion downloads recently.
Moreover, you can still search for Miniclip and find the website online. The difference is that there won’t be hundreds of games to play on the site. The site only has two games now. And besides those games, it will function as the main place from where you can get an update on what the creators are planning next.
