At Flickstiq, we’ve had a lot of good things to say about Cloud Gaming provider, Snoost. We like the power of their hardware, and we love their inexpensive unlimited pricing. So it’s with mixed feelings that we share the news that they have taken down their service.
A Farewell to the Alpha
On 03/25/18, Snoost abruptly shut down their Cloud Gaming servers. They announced on their website that they have decided to end their Alpha version of Snoost so that they can focus on what’s to come.
“To push Snoost forward to the next level in the best and fastest possible way, we’ve decided to gather all resources focusing 100% on this journey. For this reason, our service will not be available in the meantime.” – Snoost Blog
Their message was short and sweet. It also leaves many questions unanswered. They haven’t explained how billing will be handled moving forward. It’s fair to assume that all subscription billing will be halted, but they haven’t stated that implicitly. They also haven’t provided any time frame for when the service might be available again.
It’s all about the Future
Although we are sad to see Snoost go, we are also excited about the reason for their leaving. They were very clear in their announcement that the reason for ending their Alpha is to move Snoost forward.
