Ahh I read this on Gamezebo as well which would explain what's going on. Fortunately, I only bought a couple of games from Reflexive but I'm wondering for those who've bought a lot of games from there and after the site no longer will exist. At least with the Big Fish/Playfirst merger, games bought from Playfirst could still be downloaded-just a different server and all that. A different case here, I think.

Here's some info I came across today.

Reflexive Entertainment has just announced plans to stop selling games through its Game Center Solutions affiliate program in order to focus entirely on game development. In a letter sent to Game Center Solutions affiliates, Reflexive Entertainment CEO Lars Brubaker wrote that the Game Center Solutions Program would continue its business as usual, which includes web support and payment of referral fees on game sales, until June 30.

"You will continue to have access to the Control Center until July 31, 2010 at which time we will distribute your final royalty report to the email address we have on file and our agreement with you governing the Game Center Solution Affiliate Program will terminate," Brubaker continued.

"We wish you all the best and hope that we will have more opportunities to work together in the future."

Reflexive Entertainment was acquired by Amazon in Oct. 2008, and through Game Center Solutions became the supplier of all of the games in Amazon's Game Downloads section. In addition, the company sold games through its own portal, Reflexive Arcade.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed with Gamezebo that after June 30 Reflexive will be shifting its business to focus entirely on game development and that games will no longer be available for purchase on Reflexive.com.

On March 26 Gamasutra published a story speculating that Amazon was about to significantly expand its digital downloads services after job postings went up on Amazon for positions relating to digital software, Web development, and developing "exciting new customer experience in video games."

Earlier this year, PlayFirst also left the distribution side of the business to focus on developing and publishing games. For game developers, the announcement means they have one less place to sell their games, putting them in an even tighter squeeze to make a profit.


So like CB mentioned, I wonder if this is another April Fools prank? I posted one I read on Gamezebo, in the Gamezebo thread today.

Scarlet, I did not find much info. I found a tidbit about Amazon eyeing reflexive.com, another that said they sold or joined a partner in October 2008, and the only other theory is that is simply an April Fools joke.

In the forums members are speculating and some say that reflexive is going to concentrate on game development only.

I know that's not helpful but all I could find was speculation. Maybe some explanation will hit the web today.

HI all,

I was checking out Reflexive earlier and saw some important info on the upper right page:

http://www.reflexive.com/index.php?AID=827

For those who don't want to go on the page, I'll copy and paste what is on there:

Important Message

Valued Customers,


As of June 30th, 2010, games will no longer be available for
purchase on Reflexive.com.


Please be sure to install and activate your purchases prior to
July 31st, 2010.


I'm wondering if anyone knows what is going on with Reflexive. I've bought a couple of games from there in the past and they're all installed on my comp but I worry if the site is shutting down for good and we need to reinstall our games again. :/
