The TinierMe Team
TinierMe is just one of those flash-based social network games that closed one after the other within the past years. As Facebook apps and games get more and more popular, game user counts drop drastically for other games as goes their profits, leaving them unable to fund for running their company. As you know, maintaining game development companies are a bit heavy on the pocket as graphic artist, developers and so on, are expensive. Thus, stand alone game development and publishing who weren't able to cope up are left with the option of either getting bought up larger companies or are left with no other option but to shut down.
