I hope this is the right place. I myself don't play this but you all may.

FarmVille is shutting down on Facebook by the end of the year, Zynga announced Monday. The company said the move is due to Adobe's decision to stop distributing and updating its Flash Player software.6 days ago

Wow! Flashware is dead. The rippling effects will be widespread. Could Adobe be in trouble? (If you live long enough...)

Flash browser plug in has been criticized in the industry for years because of its many security holes and excessive memory demands. Also, it uses so much power that it can’t be used on mobile devices.  Adobe’s decision to retire it in 2020 was announced in 2017.  

Other games have been migrating away from it.  My game Seaport also has a lot of Windows players and they switched their Windows version to WebGL about a year ago.  I guess each game maker has to decide which games to migrate and which to discontinue.

Adobe had $2.95 billion in revenue last year, so they aren’t in trouble.        It’s just the browser plug-in that’s being dropped.

Flash was a laboratory experiment that got loose in the wild. Web award givers were unsure how to judge Flash sites. We decided to let the webmasters who did Flash site design create specific award programs as the rest of us had judging criteria that spoke to "Web excellence" in HTML. Flash was forever off to the side and its security vulnerabilities were no help for its popularity. RIP, Flash.

I have been a longtime customer of Adobe and know they are a juggernaut that will continue with more than momentum. Still the pending obsolescence of Flash brings memories (a.k.a. Flashbacks) of the early daze of this technology. Talk about lively forum "discussions"!

For years if I played Flash game, I won't install Java. And it has greatly improved my game play more than the usual clear cache. Clear flash cache etc. 

So sad to hear this.
