Playfirst is surely one the the top Casual Game developers especially Time Management games as its DASH series is extremely famous among TM fans! Many Adventure fans also appreciate their works such as Dream Chronicles series or the well-known Love and Death: Bitten. Another remarkable game from Playfirst is Chocolatier series, so it's surely sad to know that from November 12 onwards, Playfirst will no longer support PC/MAC titles as well as stop the development process for these two platforms.
Since the end of 2011, Playfirst focused increasingly on porting games to iOS as well as develop several new iOS games. Many of their iOS titles are chart topping and are very successful on the Apple's App Store so no doubt the Playfirst decided to focus only on iOS games and abandoned their PC/MAC loyalties. From November 12 onwards, Playfirst will launch a new re-designed website which includes only iOS titles. This means that PC/MAC users cannot buy PC/MAC titles from Playfirst.com anymore, but other resellers will still continue to sell them.
This is not a totally disaster decision, since iOS users can enjoy more of Playfirst's great iOS titles which they promised to bring more and more in the future as well as new titles from its famous DASH franchise! Playfirst now also working hard to develop games for Android users, so good news for Android lovers!
However, this is surely a huge disappointment for all PC/MAC fans or people with no iOS (or Android) devices. What about the conclusion to the Dream Chronicles trilogy? The clarification for the hangover ending of Love and Death? The fun we got from playing Playfirst's TM and Strategy titles? Would there be more of it? We can do nothing but just to wait and see.
