A Petition to Zynga Requesting the Company Keep Our Beloved Hidden Chronicles Game Open!
Friday, May 23, 2014, as loyal Hidden Chronicles players tried logging
in to their Ramsey Manor, they were unexpectedly hit with a “splash
screen” post from Zynga
announcing that the Hidden Chronicles game would be permanently closed
as of July 22, 2014. This announcement sent a shock wave throughout the
social gaming community, as there are literally millions of people who
are devoted to this game, many of whom have spent years building their
little virtual Ramsey Manor, investing both time and money into the
game, and building a social network of Hidden Chronicles Friends &
If you’re one on the millions of dedicated Hidden Chronicles players who were devastated by the unexpected news that Zynga would discontinue the game, please take a moment to sign this petition asking Zynga to Save Our Hidden Chronicles!
TO: Don Mattrick, Zynga’s CEO and Mark Pincus, Zynga’s Chairman & Hidden Chronicles Team:
We, the undersigned, being loyal players of your Social Network game “Hidden Chronicles” do hereby formally request that you reconsider your decision to close the game. We each truly enjoy playing this game, and were absolutely devastated by the announcement that you’ve decided to discontinue and close Hidden Chronicles effective July 22, 2014.
We have each invested not only money on VIP Memberships and purchasing estate cash, scenes, infinite energy but an incalculable amount of our valuable free time in to playing the Hidden Chronicles game, while building our virtual Estates. With so much invested, we feel that it’s unfair to simply close the doors on us with such short notice, while leaving us with no comparable option to replace this game.
It’s difficult to explain how Hidden Chronicles has given a social life back to many of us who, for any number of reasons, didn’t have much social contact before we found Hidden Chronicles. We ask you to please consider the hundreds of thousands, if not millions of players who enjoy, and get great satisfaction from playing Hidden Chronicles every day. We plead with you; do NOT take this game and social life-line away from us. Please keep Hidden Chronicles up, running and operational for your faithful customers and loyal, daily players.
