    Jolt has be sold!!!

    http://gameinformer.com/b/news/archi...ne-gaming.aspx

    GameStop announced today that they have acquired Jolt Online Gaming, a publisher of free-to-play browser games.

    “Acquiring Jolt is significant building block in our digital business strategy. This is further evidence of our commitment to building a world-class digital business platform. Combining Jolt’s expertise as a successful publisher, developer and aggregator of browser based games with GameStop’s vast multi-channel resources will enable us to shape and grow new market opportunities within the video game entertainment industry. Going forward, our vision for Jolt is that it will continue its focus on working with our game publisher partners to create online games for game titles and brands that aren't currently being exploited by the publishers themselves and then leveraging our global retail footprint to offer those games to GameStop’s customers," said Chris Petrovic, general manager of GameStop.

    Legends of Zork, Utopia Kingdoms, and Trukz are a few of the titles published by Jolt, as well as the upcoming Playboy Manager.

    Full Disclosure: Game Informer is owned by GameStop

    Well I think a major change at this point is the end. Why would Jolt/OMAC or what ever it is called now start shutting games down just before this.

    If it dies we can migrate to one of the clones or someone from the community can program a better clone.

    There is an easy way to moneterize the game. People play for free but each kingdom has a 'treasure chest' that needs to be filled with paypal/offerpal/adclicks to stop it auto-disbanding end of each age.

    micropayments and simple online games like this is the big thing now on the web, thats why companies are getting snapped up.

    It's sad that Utopia Kingdoms & Playboy Manager are some of their most notable assets.
    Also,
    'Jolt’s expertise as a successful publisher, developer and aggregator of browser based games' = WTF?
