A farewell to one of the greatest digital apps to ever exist
« on: January 18, 2020, 09:06:01 PM »
It is with a sad heart that I must report that the CodingMonkeys have lost the rights to publish Carcassonne on iOS and Mac. The Carcassonne app will be available until the 1st of March at which time it will be unavailable and replaced with Asmodee's implementation as currently found on Steam and Android. The CodingMonkeys have promised to keep servers up for at least 1 year and will keep them up even longer beyond that as budget permits. Also, in light of this situation they've gone ahead and put all theirs apps on sale for 50% off (not sure if this includes the in app purchases as well). You can read more about this sad news via their blog post here,

I have played and enjoyed Asmodee's Steam implementation of Carcassonne but it couldn't measure up the incredible greatness that was the CodingMonkey's iOS implementation. I will hate to see this app pass on but I likely will pick up the Asmodee version when it is available.

I'm curious what all of you think? I can't imagine I'm the only one saddened by this news.

That's sad. Maybe a stupid question, but will we still be able to play local games vs AI opponents after the servers go down?

Terrible new DaFees. The Coding Monkeys rendition of Carcassonne has been my all-time favorite iOS app. I’ve seen the Asmodee version and it seems to follow Carc II styling, and as a Carc I guy, l’ll be sad to make that switch. Only digitally though; still holding out on Carc II printings.

I think that would still work without the servers, as long as you don’t delete the app. Once deleted, it will be gone forever.
