Forge was shut down and delisted on Steam on January 8th, 2015. Previous to this, the game transitioned to a free-to-play model in 2013 but apparently didn’t generate enough active players or profit from in-game items to sustain development beyond 2014. The spin-off title, Forge: Ymil’s Revenge, was delisted a few days later on January 10th, 2015. Dark Vale Games posted on the franchise homepage in regards to both Forge and Forge: Ymil’s Revenge:
Thank you for 3 years of support and gameplay! The team at Dark Vale couldn’t have done it without you! Unfortunately, it’s expensive to keep a game live. And without additional investment, we’re forced to take a bit of a hiatus. We’re hopeful that things turn around and we can get back to work on building out the Forge Universe. And if any of you know a Daddy Warbucks, please send him our way!
Thanks Again!–The Team at Dark Vale Games
