Scarbulous is apparently shutting down their facebook app. I was mid-game and as far as I can recall winning too. You can still play on their site which I find weird.
This is not the first time companies kill potential cash cows. A thing I find silly to do at best. An analogy will help clear things up.
Say someone grew a whole field of corn on your land, better crops than you ever managed to grow on the land in the last five years. What do you do? Do you:
- Chase him off, sell the corn and enjoy a one time profit.
- Reach some agreement with him and let him continue successfully growing corn on your land while you collect a monthly check.
- Burn the corn and shoot the other guy torture his family and swear vengeance will be yours forever.
- All of the above
There is no "correct" answer but I'd go with number 2.
