There you have it. Wizards of the Coast’s Facebook D&D game has been removed from Facebook.
This comes as a surprise to me as despite playing it a lot (hey; I travel) I was totally unaware that the game was about to retire.
If you go to the old URL for the game application at www.facebook.com/TinyAdventures then you’ll simply be redirected back to Facebook.
I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering if D&D Tiny Adventures has been removed from Facebook on purpose.
It has. Using Google’s cache I’ve been able to take this farewell message from the game’s old installation page.
Thank you all for participating in our promotional application of Dungeons & Dragons Tiny Adventures – it proved to be a tremendous success. Now that this promotion has run its course, you can look forward to many more great D&D experiences from both Wizards of the Coast and our partners in the future. Be sure to send your adventurer off on one last quest before the application comes down at 11 pm PST tonight.
I know the game didn’t make Hasbro or WoTC any money. Perhaps that’s why they pulled it? It never made them any money though; I thought it was designed as a marketing activity rather than an earner – so what’s changed?
I think WoTC have made a mistake pulling it (unless the costs are really high) as it was their own computer and social success.
What do you think?
