This news is affecting homebrewers including Nanochess and myself.
You may or may not know it but, November 2013, I used Scubbly website to release Flora and the Ghost Mirror game as a digital copy downloadable (to play on an emulator or a special game cartridge like the Atarimax's Coleco Multicart) while cartridges of the game were not yet ready.

According to Scubbly's blog post on January 1st, 2017, their service will shut down around summer time.

What should we do next?
Find another website offering the same easy service with protection for both buyers and sellers and low fees?
- OR -
Abandon the idea of providing digital copies of our new games in an online store?
Any idea? What do you think? Please share and comment.
