Summary (IA Generated)

Video game publisher and web gaming company Kongregate is no longer accepting new submissions for its Kongregate.

Kongregate says it’s also shutting down many of the site’s social features, and GameIndustry.

biz reports that it’s made a number of layoffs as part of the changes.

“You will still be able to play our existing library of over 128,000 amazing games and developers will be able to update their games as normal,” Kongregate said in its statement.

It’s unlikely to come as much of a surprise that the company is shifting resources away from its site, which it described as a “legacy Flash gaming platform” in a statement to GameIndustry.

For its part, Kongregate has partnered with Rochester’s The Strong National Museum of Play to preserve its Flash games.

Although Kongregate says that its existing library of games will still be available, many of the site’s social features will be disabled on July 22nd.

Forums for Kongregate’s own games like Bit Heroes will not be affected, the company said, and it will be dedicating fewer resources to supporting the site overall.

Kongregate also confirmed that it’s making a number of layoffs as part of the changes.

The company confirmed the layoffs to GameIndustry.

“We can confirm that we have made the difficult, but necessary decision to let a number of appreciated team members go today,” the company said in a statement.
