Another One Bites the Dust: The Gaming Project Shuts Down

The Gaming Project Banner

The last couple years have seen a tightening of the belts in the tech industry as well as in startup investing. Partly as a result, a number of cloud gaming services have shuttered. This of course includes the elephant in the room: Google Stadia.

However, a number of smaller outlets have closed as well. Vortex, a cloud gaming app run by the folks at RemoteMyApp which had been downloaded millions of times, shuttered in early 2022. NWare announced it was closing its beta cloud gaming services back in August, 2023. And just recently, we noticed that The Gaming Project (a cloud gaming service catering to India that we had been tracking) has shuttered as of September 2023.

Here is what they communicated to their user community:

Dear Gamers,

It is with a heavy heart we inform you that The Gaming Project will temporarily cease its operations from 12th of September 2023. Due to unforeseen circumstances, for now, we are not able to provide our services.

Your active subscriptions will be cancelled, and refunds will be processed per our policy. We request you to give us a few days to process the refunds. For save game data retrieval or inquiries, please contact us before 29/09/2023.

We are trying our best to get back on our feet but we can’t thank you enough for your support and loyalty over the years and thank you for being an integral part of our journey.

Staying afloat in the cloud gaming space isn’t easy. Users are used to cloud services being free/cheap, but there are some serious expenses in deploying and maintaining cloud servers as well as content acquisition.
