FarmVille, which allowed players to cultivate colorful cartoon-like farms by caring for crops and caring for livestock, had 30 million daily players at its peak. But game developerIn September, it would close the game on December 31, a victim of Adobe’s decision to stop distributing and updating Flash Player for browsers, which in turn led to Facebook announcing an end to Flash game support on the platform.
The writing has been even longer on the wall. In 2017, Facebook – along with, Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – announced plans to end support for Flash by December this year.
Once the de facto standard for websites to run games, stream video and deliver animation over browser software, Flash Player has fallen in favor of many technology companies and organizations, which mock the plugin as a battery pig and security issue. Its popularity has declined in recent years as more people in the online video industry turn to HTML5, an evolving language that can run graphics without plug-ins.
And if you really want to continue with fake farming, there are other options. The company will continue to run FarmVille 2: Tropic Escape and FarmVille 2: Country Escape, and says players can look forward to the upcoming worldwide launch of FarmVille 3 for mobile.
