I find it a bit amusing sad that there's still a "Summer Sale" notice on their front page.

So Shiny Loot. Remember them? No? Well fine Indef's Monkey Island adventures were all for naught.

 

Anyhow they've been quiet because they've been hard at work on a super sekrit project. A Let's Play Search Engine. Betcha always said 'Hey I wish someone would make a site that I could enter the name of a game in and just get some random Let's Play video from someone I've never heard of to pop up and play'.

 

Well now you can!

Over the past several months, you may have noticed a few less emails. You also may (or may not) have wondered what was going on with ShinyLoot. As a small team, we often make tough choices about how to spend our time. Lately that time has been spent developing VidXplore.

A year ago we launched VidXplore as a video based tool to discover games on ShinyLoot. We've dramatically improved upon that core concept to create a sort of 'Pandora' for games. We've separated out VidXplore and added over 9,000 games for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Wii, with more platforms on the way. We've also considerably increased the number of traits fueling the back-end of our game discovery tool to over 350. Finally, game trailers have been swapped for gameplay videos via YouTube from famous personalities and rising stars. VidXplore is now a tool not just for finding new games, but finding new YouTube channels as well.

 

The new version of VidXplore is now in beta. You may see a few oddities both in traits and videos, and we'll be cleaning these up throughout the beta process with your feedback and reports.

 

Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

 

For more immediate updates, join us on Facebook or Google Plus or follow us on Twitter @ShinyLoot.

Everyone hates him. He's talentless. He's the Kim Kardashian of gaming. Literally anyone could do what he does, which is equates to nothing meaningful whatsoever.

 

Even AmazonJosh is better than pewdiepie.

Man, that gravestone looks pretty jacked up for a company that just died yesterday.  Did you steal it from Desura or something?

Hello you sucker,

Today we are making a public announcement to confirm what some of you have speculated over the past few months. ShinyLoot will, in the near future, begin the process of shutting down as a digital distribution service. With this email we will outline our thinking that led to this decision and what you can expect as a customer. We have always strived for transparency in our operations and we feel that you deserve as much information as possible, with as much warning as possible.

Every customer will be provided ample time to download their game libraries and use any remaining credits. As such, there are two important dates to keep in mind. The last date that purchases will be allowed is January 31st, 2016. After this date, all remaining credits will be forfeited. The last date we will be active for downloads, support, or general operational matters is March 17, 2016. We feel this is a fair balance between allowing access to files from our servers and the financial and time cost to us in maintaining operations.

With that out of the way, we would like to go into the reasons why we are following this course of action, our future as a business, and how we got to this point.

We started ShinyLoot with the goal of promoting independent and medium sized publishers through primarily DRM-free offerings using a trait discovery system. Although many games have received thousands of additional views through our service, we never really converted those views into a high enough sales rate. Between the lack of performance and the looming large investment required to continue growing, our motivation has gradually waned.

Both founding members of ShinyLoot have slowly lost the drive and passion we used to break into the market. It became clear that the long hours needed to see ShinyLoot thrive would not be ending anytime soon. Stress started to play a role in both of our lives and we sacrificed other ventures to make this work. So we took a break for most of 2015 to try to reignite the spark with our most recent sale in November, but it simply didn't last. And in that time, the market has grown even more competitive. At this point, we simply don't think managing ShinyLoot as a digital distributor is a significant addition to the gaming community nor the right course of action for us personally or professionally. There are simply too many services that provide an equal or better substitute for our offerings.

As for what that means in the future, we have been in talks with a few companies and individuals to transition ownership of ShinyLoot elsewhere. Nothing ever materialized that made sense, either because of how it affected us, you, our publishers and developers, or all of the above. We have continued to try to do everything the "right way", and that does limit our options. So we will maintain rights to the domain and perhaps try to transition into something that is purely discovery based, without the retail aspect, as that seemed to be our biggest benefit to the gaming community.

So this is where we are at. We know that it's not a great message to receive at the end of the year, and it's not one that's easy for us to deliver. We hope that you understand our decision, and we would be happy to talk with any of you if you would like to respond. Please keep in mind that responses may be delayed depending on the quantity of replies we receive. We wish you a Happy New Year and that this may be only a small hiccup in an otherwise great 2016 for you.

Thanks,

Chris and Sood (ShinyLoot Staff)

I am generally sad to see it go. Will have to remember to download DRM free games not avaliable elsewhere like Mark Leung Revenge of the Bitch and Nancy the Happy Whore...which has a different name now.

I think Mark Leung is also available at Gamersgate.
