InstantAction Closed

A November Update on the Torque Community Forums has word from Eric Preisz that InstantAction "will be winding down operations," and indeed the web-based gaming service is already shut down (thanks Gamasutra). Word is:

Today, InstantAction informed employees that it will be winding down operations. While we are shutting down the website and Instant Jam game, will continue to operate while InstantAction explores opportunities with potential buyers for Torque. We thank all of our past and current customers for their support.

Whether you liked or dislikes their so called spritual successor to tribes they had other unique games like rocketball that a lot of people seemed to like. The problem is that they kept nerfing everything down regardless of what people would say. Also their choice of instant jam as their big game for IA was kind of dumb. I just dont think they had a high calibre team of people to run the company effectively. People expect a lot of polish out of games these days and their online games weren't very polished. The Tribes reheash was watered down even more then Tribes Vengeance which I'm sure turned off a lot of the exisiting fanbase anyway. Then you add things like the oncoming free firefall game, Onlive gaming services. Some tough competiiton.
