Flash games site Kongregate will stop accepting submissions on July 22nd

Flash games site Kongregate will stop accepting submissions on July 22nd

If you played Flash-based games in the 2000s, you probably remember Kongregate, a website that hosted over 100,000 browser games. Developers of any experience level could upload their creations, and users could find a host of oddball options that you weren’t likely to find elsewhere. Unfortunately, the site will soon take a step towards being more of an archive than an active part of the internet, as Kongregate has announced that it’ll stop accepting new game uploads

“around” July 22nd. The company does say that all of its 128,000 games will still be playable, and developers will be able to keep updating them, as well.

Additionally, Forbes confirmed that the site is also laying off an unknown number of employees after a number of employees tweeted that they only found out by a direct deposit to their bank accounts. Kongregate said in a statement to Forbes that the way they found out was entirely unintentional.
