Yesterday, a deeply saddened Matt Mihaly (CEO of Sparkplay Media) informed players that Earth Eternal is clinging to life in the absence of funding. While Earth Eternal itself will be put up for auction and possibly maintained, Sparkplay Media is no more, as Mihaly himself and another unnamed individual are all that is left of the entire staff. It is more than likely that the company will cease to exist by this time next week.
This past weekend came as a crippling blow, as the last prospective investor backed out and Sparkplay was left to it’s own devices. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the words of Mihaly himself,
I’m sorry. I’ve failed you despite my best efforts. I’ve never worked harder in my life, but it wasn’t enough. Things that we planned on happening didn’t, and things we didn’t plan on happening did.
Mihaly will be shutting down all credit sales, while setting all non-permanent items in the credit shop to cost nothing. Current EE players should jump in, grab these freebies, and show the game some love before Mihaly returns with news later this week. Read his entire post here.
