Meteor Games Sunsets Neopets: Treasure Keepers, Allegedly Cuts Staff

Meteor Games is taking Neopets: Treasure Keepers offline today, according to a post to the game’s Wall by the developer. Anonymous sources also tell Inside Social Games that 90% of staff has been laid off after failure to raise funding or find a buyer.

Neopets: Treasure Keepers was launched on Facebook in August, where it peaked at just over 300,000 monthly active users and 35,000 daily active users in September before going into decline. As of today, it’s Meteor Games’ fifth-largest title after Ranch Town, the Turkish version of Island Paradise published by Peak Games, Serf Wars, and the original Island Paradise. The developer enjoys 913,209 MAU and 171,003 DAU across all its apps on Facebook.

Official representatives for Meteor Games could not be reached for comment as of press time. Inside Social Games can confirm that CEO Zac Brandenberg left the developer in November. There is no indication at this time that any of the developer’s other games will be taken offline. Meteor Games was co-founded in 2007 by original Neopets creators Adam Powell and Donna Williams.

Thanks to all the tipsters that sent this in.
