After 13 years, 'casual' game hub JayIsGames will shut down

After 13 years, 'casual' game hub JayIsGames will shut down

April 29, 2016 | By Alex Wawro

The folks over at long-running online game hub JayIsGames have confirmed that the website will cease operations this week, though it will remain online for the foreseeable future.

"Obviously nobody is happy about this," reads the announcement, which was published today. "Unfortunately, we can no longer continue operating due to a variety of factors."

JayIsGames started in 2003 as a website dedicated to reviewing and discussing free online games, especially "casual" games, but in the course of its 13-year lifespan expanded to cover free and paid games on mobile, PC and browsers.

Many game developers saw their work covered in the pages of JayIsGames, and some even earned recognition by taking part in the website's occasional game design competitions
