Time for an update on some upcoming Steam delistings heading into May. Previously announced, SUPER BOT and Adventures with a Girl are both leaving Valve’s platform “as of May” so they’re likely to be gone in just a few days on April 30th or May 1st. Here are the relevant announcements, links, and dates for the rest in order of going-away-soonest.
Leaving Steam “ASAP”
It’s been some time since our last update, and unfortunately, the news we have to share isn’t what we were hoping for. The RageQuit team has made the difficult decision to request SRC’s removal from the Steam storefront due to the shutdown of third-party services, which SRC relied on for its essential features.
Recent months have seen Leaderboards, Character Customization, and Multiplayer features becoming either entirely unavailable or unreliable. We’ve discussed solutions internally, but unfortunately, we haven’t had the capacity to fix these issues. Long story short, it doesn’t feel right to keep SRC available on Steam when significant aspects of the game are no longer functioning.
We’ll be working with Steam to remove the game from sale as quickly as possible. From our understanding this won’t affect those who have already purchased SRC, and you will still be able to install and play the game, but the store page will no longer be available.
Our team remains deeply attached to SRC and the memories it holds as our first indie game. While many of us are now working on new projects, we’re still passionate about the possibility of restoring SRC in the future. However, we cannot make any promises at this time.
We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to our small but incredibly enthusiastic community, whose passion and speedy race times never ceased to amaze us.Steam Announcement – April 25, 2023
Leaving Steam May 1st
Storybook Brawl servers shutting down May 1st. On behalf of everyone on the SBB team, we’d like to thank you for your support. We’ve explored different options, and unfortunately there is no path forward. We’ll be shutting down the servers on May 1st – please enjoy SBB until then, and thanks for all the memories ♥️Steam Announcement – April 25, 2023
Leaving Steam May 2nd
Game to be taken off-sale on 5/2 2023 12:00 pm EST. The servers will remain but as for new players the game is dead.
Thank you guys 4 everything. This has been a wild ride but I’m not proud of a asset flip(low effort game) and will request steam to take the game off-sale(if they accept). Make sure to join the discord: https://discord.gg/AdqbEHtN8S to get updates on later projects! The servers are fine for now btw.
Thanks for everything! <3Steam Announcement – April 18, 2023

Shutting down May 31st
First of all, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our loyal players who loved “Mu Legend.” From November 2019 to the present, we have been working with all of you for a short time to provide greater pleasure, but it was judged that it was difficult to provide satisfactory service, and made a difficult decision to reorganize the service. We cannot say how sad it is, but the current “Mu Legend” has many problems as our beloved players keep giving us suggestions.
And there were many difficulties in fixing and improving these problems during the service. We decided that we should review and start over from the basics of Mu Legend. Therefore, Mu Legend decided to close for a while for the reorganization. Although it is for a short period, termination of the service is a necessary process in the process of reorganizing Mu Legend.
We would appreciate it if you considered this an excruciating effort by the development team to provide better service to our players. We promise to give our players with a more prepared and developed Mu Legend.
Based on the decision to reorganize the service, the Mu Legend Global service will be available until May 31, 2023. After that, all related services, including the homepage, will not be available. In addition, all posts registered on all websites will be deleted after May 31, 2023.
We’re going to wrap up our precious memories with you and prepare for a bigger leap forward. Thank you very much for your support, and We promise to meet you again with a better appearance. We would like to say once again that “Mu Legend” ends briefly for the reorganization, and we promise that we will come back with a better Mu Legend soon.Steam Announcement – April 26, 2023
