Did you spend way too much time playing the original FarmVille back to its peak? Well, now your last chance to get a last minute of retro farming. original FarmVille stops after today (December 31) and will no longer work when the new year is coming. The writing was still on the wall considering Flash’s impending death. But act now if you want a little nostalgia.
Believe it or not FarmVille eleven years old now. Even more surprisingly, you can still play the original game, at least one more day. Zynga, the company behind FarmVille, already stopped in-app purchases last November. And it’s not like the whole concept of the game is dead; FarmVille already has several suites. But they are not the same.
But it feels like the end of the early days of the internet, and especially the early days of Facebook. Eleven years ago, there wasn’t much to do or see on Facebook, and FarmVille was almost THE reason to visit the site. Banging your friends has only provided a lot of fun. With the in-game limits built in to generate daily visits and the urge to spend the cash, it took off pretty quickly. And crashed soon after.
If you fondly remember your farm and want to harvest one last time, go now. It will be too late for the New Year.
