Game Over

TeacherGaming shutting down in May 2021

Dear teachers, parents and gamers,

We are writing to inform you that we are shutting down TeacherGaming services in May 2021. Despite our best efforts, we haven’t been able to turn the service into commercial success. That’s why we are pulling the plug on the remaining services next month. After that, game downloads, lesson plans, analytics, classes and the TeacherGaming app and websites will no longer be available. Please check the list below to make sure you have access to your purchased content in the future as well!

TeacherGaming in its current form saw the light of day in 2017 and during the past four years, we’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most awesome and quirky game studios around the globe. We want to thank each and every studio, past and present for helping us turn their games into tools in the hands of the around 15,000 teachers who’ve used the games during the past few years. We’d also like to express our gratitude to our investors, advisers and all the accelerators who believed in our ambitious ideas and helped us take them global.

But most of all, we want to thank you, fellow gamers and teachers. You have been the trailblazers, trying out something new, often ambitious and scary. We hope it has been worth your while and you’ve been able excite a new generation of gamers and learners.

For us the journey has been much like a great game: we had tons of fun but equally importantly, we’ve learned more than we could imagine. Unfortunately, failing is also an integral part of games and this time we did fail. But as every gamer knows, failure is nothing but an opportunity to try again.
