Yesterday Free Realm’s nearly five-year run came to a sad end. The final hour marked many parties, tears, mass picture sharing on Twitter and more. I had hoped more members of Gone Postal would have made an appearance, but in the end it was only me and one other (though a few were online on alts in other guilds).
It also would have been nice if the shutdown message (seen above) had been more personal, a real goodbye instead of the default maintenance update. Ah well, it was still nice seeing so much fun going on in the game again, it’s just sad that it happened in its final hours.
Prior to yesterday’s shutdown I wrote my thoughts over on ZAM (see it below the video here), along with several pictures spanning the years.
