Though not included in the announcement the game was also delisted on the Epic Games Store though its release on the Nintendo Switch has remained available as of mid-April 2023.
We are sad to tell these news, but Warshmallows shall be shut down and the game will be discontinued. Despite the best actions possible we couldn’t find enough players to sustain the game’s servers and other infrastructure. The shutdown will be started immediately. We are truly sorry for this, and on the other hand we have eternally grateful to all the players, fans, community, content creators, and every single soul who have participated in this journey.Warshmallows Announcement – February 27, 2023 (Now deleted)
Warshmallows’s developers and publishers
Months after the delisting Walid Sultan posted a reply on the Warshmallows Discord server explaining that the paid release of the game on PC “had limitations when it came to adoption and testing”. They added that they have since switched to a free-to-play business model integrating WEB3 technology to “bring all its benefits to our players”.
As of April 2023 You Run and Bonus Stage Publishing were seeking to sell Warshmallow NFTs and were referring to the game as Warshmallows World. Further comments from Sultan suggested that a playable Alpha of the game may be available in the Summer of 2023. It is uncertain at the time of this writing when or if the Nintendo Switch release will be shut down or replaced.
