I activated my Enchanted Tales
app to check if they'd activated another event for me to play when I saw this screen as it started up:
Then all these items starting appearing granting lots of free gold, diamonds and XP.
Since this is only done when the game is about to be deactivated (because it doesn't matter anymore!), I assume the signs are not good that the game will still be playable after the end of April!
The really sad thing is, the game wasn't complete, it was recreating the story of Frozen and Tangled movies, but it only got 30% of Frozen's plot and 60% of Tangled's plot.
And this has happened before, there was a game called Disney Hidden Worlds which also got cancelled.
Avengers Alliance 1 and 2 were also closed down, in an announcement that cited an executive decision from Disney as the reason.
From my perspective, it looks like Disney Interactive is just making those mindless puzzle games and giving up completely on games that are story based.
If they have no intention of supporting these games longterm, just don't develop them in the first place.
You can't give someone a favorite toy, then take it away again.
I hope this isn't an indication that Moana Island Life
will be the next game to be "discontinued".
I enjoy the game, but if it's going to be cancelled in a few months, it means that it was never intended to be a long term prospect.
Given all that has happened with Disney Infinity and the other games mentioned in this post plus the complete absence of any movie tie-in games, my consumer confidence in Disney Interactive is at an all time low.
And unfortunately, I expect it to diminish even further in the future.
