John now works for Kongregate.

And some questions: Are his future games going to be exclusive to Kongregate (for example, Exit Path 2 is here but not there, if he made a big game will it only be played there)? Will he still remain an administrator here?

Wasn't sure where to put this.

Here Triple 70.


tks nicho XD
but do u mind answer 1 more Q: what is the meaning of "jmtb02"? i actually saw this name long time ago but still can NOT understand what is "jmtb02" stand for lah? :-P

Now that doesn't give a definite answer, but there's only a few reasons why he'd leave. Better job offer or something bad happening at ArmorGames. All I can think of. Since it doesn't appear to be the latter, it was probably a better job offer.



I have 2 more reason for the impossibility of the 2nd option (something bad happening at ArmorGames) to add here:

1. John said in his blog " Iâve been producing content for Armor Games for over eight years and have made many friends and colleagues at Armor. Armor Games was an amazing company to work for, full of talented and amazing people. During my time there I produced somewhere around 50-60 games. I am very thankful for the time I had at Armor and leaving was not an easy choice."

---> so imo he left AG on gud term, just like Cormyn lah :-P


2. In his latest game- LOOT the game, if u look carefully u ll see that he wrote "Dedicate to Danny" in the title screen---> John still luv AG and his bud- DanielMcNeely very much lah XD

3. Strop's above cmt also quite similar to mah opinion, especially the part about "not satisfy with the current nice working environment and wanna try sth new "
You don't just leave a workplace of eight years for a simple change, other things make the decision.



y not think like this: John got bored after working 8 years for a repetitive environment (AG) so he wanna have a new adventure to other working environent- Kong.....
and actually John also said that " I resigned my post at Armor Games to take on a new adventure at Kongregate"
so imo think it s quite a reasonable reason lah :-P

Doesn't really matter why he left though, he'll still be making games.



but have u thought there ll be a chance that John's games will be EXCLUSIVELY FOR KONG? that thought made me worry too much lah :-P

actually AG also has many exclusive games lah :-P (and this the latest one lah :-P )


see Cormyn's example



actually I also wanna know more about the reason y Cormyn left AG.....and tks to ur cmt above I know that he left bcoz he need to earn more money than AG's salary to bring up his family lah XD
===> but do u mind giving me more details about Cormyn's leaving, Strop?


You know what, why am I sitting around speculating on this when I might be able to ask him directly? I'm going to do that instead.


FINALLY some real action! XD
tks so much mah Mod, plz ask John directly and give us the truth lah XD

I am sure he had a conflict with a superior on this site, or he did not get enough money.

Why would he "betray" the site he spent most time on? He is going to do the same thing on kong, which is making games.

It's not betrayal, it's advancing in his career.

I'm not really sure. Just his name of his fancy I guess.

No I doubt so. He and the AG staff still get along well.

He'll probably end up making some games exclusive to Kong, like how some of his games can only be found here. Either way, it doesn't matter if he gets along with them or not. If a contract says that he can only upload there, he'll have to follow it.

Agreed. They say money can't buy happiness, but in many cases it does.

Well, yes... Note his last games are TOTALLY [Advertising] ONLY (and so as another one) due to [Advertising]...
