We've received several reports of popular games such as Amorphous+ going missing, which I'm sure must have been most distressing for many of you!

Fear not, I think we've figured out why this has been happening. As you know, more developers have recently been working on optimising the site so that it doesn't 'lag so much' and 'break' (both common and valid complaints we hear about), after which the administration will be able to implement changes to the site much more easily.

A side-effect of this is that certain game files might go missing. As far as I know, they were not intentionally deleted, nor is it a permanent loss, as we should be able to recover them as soon as we figure out precisely what's going on.

In short: your favorite game missing? It's not gone forever: We'll get it back soon!

Thanks Strop. I was wondering why some games were missing... Hopefully it will all be for the better in the short term.

And Amorphous+ has been safely returned, no save files going invalid or anything (thankfully, I'm at 99 awards >_>).
Dunno if there's others missing atm~

Read, my boy. He said they are going through the process of trying to make the site less lag-ish. Some game files might be lost, but eventually returned.

What about super old games that have gone missing, like Achilles and many others? Will they ever come back?
