One of the better voices for indie games (especially the micro-indies), Playism, is shuttering its online store, costing those indies one of the better opportunities that they had to get some real visibility in an increasingly difficult digital marketplace.
According to a note on the Playism store page: As of 13:00 on March 24th, 2021 (JST), you will no longer be able to purchase games/content/etc. on the PLAYISM Store. Additionally, the My Page feature, from which you can redownload purchased games/content and reacquire Steam keys, are scheduled to also cease function after 13:00 on May 10th, 2021 (JST). Please be sure to properly make any necessary purchases and save any purchased content/post-purchase data/etc. as required before the above-listed dates.
