Playdom pulls the plug on developer's entire catalog three months after acquiring the free-to-play online game specialist.

Acclaim is apparently dead again. Barely three months after the free-to-play online game publisher was acquired by Playdom, the social gaming company has pulled the plug on Acclaim's entire catalog.



Acclaim lasted barely three months under the Playdom umbrella.

On what used to be the official Acclaim Web site,
visitors are given a short message saying that Acclaim games will no
longer be in service, effective yesterday. The site also contains
instructions on how customers can be reimbursed for unused Acclaim Coins
(the in-game currency that drove the company's microtransactions) and
plugs for Playdom's lineup of Facebook games. The site gives no
indication that the Acclaim name will continue in any form. Playdom did
not return GameSpot's request for comment as of press time.
Originally founded in 1987 as a publisher for consoles, PCs, and arcades, Acclaim enjoyed mixed success until it filed for bankruptcy in 2004.
The company published critically lauded titles, such as Turok and
Burnout 1 and 2, as well as less warmly received titles, such as BMX
XXX, Batman Forever, and Space Jam.
Following the breakup of the company, Throwback Entertainment purchased many of Acclaim's key intellectual properties, while former Activision executive Howard Marks
purchased the brand name. Marks went on to reboot Acclaim Games as a
free-to-play games portal and had some success with titles like Bots,
9Dragons, and the rhythm action game RockFree, which at one point
boasted 15 million registered players.

What was your fave aclaim game? do you think they will ever make a comeback?
