This is a horrible day.

This is a horrible thing to have to say: Brokencell Servers are closing. (except Modded Stars) -
The website will be closed on May 21st at 6PM Romanian Time.

The servers will be closed at this time, so players can't communicate and find each other anymore.
Brokencell, the Brokencell API and third party applications which rely on the Brokencell API will become unavailable at the same time as the website closure.

Automatic refunds for recent purchases will begin immediately. Refunds for older transactions will need to be done manually and will be processed as quickly as possible, from most recent to oldest. For details on your payments, to request a refund, or to see the status of your refund, please contact us by email.

Unfortunately, Brokencell has not attracted an audience large enough to sustain itself and based on a long period of experimentation and our best estimates, it seems unlikely that it ever would. And, given the prevailing technological trends - the movement towards mobile and especially the continued decline of the SC games popularity on which Brokencell was built - it was unlikely to do so before its time was up.

Brokencell was very ambitious and pushed the limits of what could be done in a SC based game ... and then those limits pushed back.

For many of us at Brokencell, the creation of something like Private Servers was a long-held dream. There's no better word than "heartbreaking" to describe what it feels like to have to do this. And we know that for many of you who poured your creativity, energy and imagination into Brokencell and the community, it will be heartbreaking as well. We are sorry to have let you down.

We are grateful to have had the opportunity to play with you.
The server was absolutely preposterous.

And yet, we kind of liked it.
