End of the game for Everdale, the peaceful multiplayer village building and farming game by Supercell. In just one month, Supercell has decided to end the development of two of its games. We said goodbye to Clash Quest in September and this time, we have to say goodbye to Everdale which was in soft launch for about 1 year.

Gamers are disappointed to see their progress and their little haven of peace leave and some even wonder if they should continue to trust Supercell who seems to abandon its projects one after the other.
