Blue Mars PC Support Ending

The Blue Mars Blog announces that Avatar Reality is shifting their development effort on this virtual world to the mobile version, saying: "With our focus now clearly on mobile, updates to the PC version of the software will likely be restricted to bug fixes for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, we will no longer charge our current City Developers for the monthly city hosting service. The servers will remain online, city updates and uploads will continue, and shop and residence rentals will still function but technical support for the user client will no longer be offered." They also announce a restructuring resulting in the loss of many jobs, including that of CEO Jim Sink, who penned the update. Thanks Massively.

your customer base your trying please is not going to sink hundreds of dollars of money into their casual mobile gaming

Really? If you have a i/Touch/Phone/Pad check the App store for top 25 grossing ... #2, #3 and #5 are "free" games. They let you purchase in game for power ups which is counted towards sales.
So yes people will spend hundreds of dollars on virtual items.

People on mobiles are quick to press "yes"
Mobile Device Users More Susceptible to Phishing Scams
