Keep your Flash game alive with Xsolla Launcher
May 27, 2021
Do you have a Flash game that’s too complex to port to another HTML-enabled engine like Unity?
As you’re aware, Adobe shut down Flash and blocked content that runs on Flash Player beginning on January 12, 2021. This brought an end to millions of websites and web games. It’s been a slow death for a technology that helped developers create interactive web content and sparked a video game revolution.
Save your Flash game
The demise of Flash impacts more than 250,000 games that are now no longer accessible to players worldwide. Many game developers don’t have the resources to move their games from Flash to another platform. Maybe your game is among those that were left in the lurch. What can you do?
Xsolla may be the answer. We’ve already helped some of our clients breathe new life into their Flash-based games in a matter of days.
Xsolla Launcher is a customizable tool that optimizes content delivery costs while centralizing modules for everything from virtual currency to news and banners. Developers can continue to provide players access to their games without losing revenue. They can also offer a standalone version of their game while creating a customizable hub and community for their players.

This solution is not only reserved for big enterprise companies, either. Indie developers stand to benefit as well because it doesn’t require a lot of resources or complex coding to set up and keep your Flash game accessible to your players.
