It's my understanding that AdventureShop closed down (I believe this happened quite a while ago). wave

It used to be if you went to
https://us-adventureshop.gamesplanet.com
you'd get something that looked like ***this site*** (web archive link)

Now you get forwarded to
http://us-games.nexway.com/home.html
which appears to be another game-selling site.

It "looks" kind of like the Nexway site might have bought out AdventureShop, but maybe they just bought the expired domain in order to direct traffic to their own website. I can't find any information one way or the other.
I doubt they are honoring past purchases that were made from AdventureShop.

They've connected to AdventureShop site at least since last year, where Robert Gray reported being confused by it in ***this thread***.

You may still have your games, I would write Nexway and see if they are honoring the purchased games from the Adventure Shop.

Places like STeam are profitable and growing and I can't imagine losing my games. GoG and other DRM-free is also safer because you can backup your games, if you have room to do so.

I hope you can retrieve your games.

So they are only giving you the ones they have themselves? At least they are kind enough to do that. Sorry you couldn't get them all.

The other holder of the games at TAS was Metaboli. Not sure if that site is okay though.

Just finished chatting with Nexway. The Adventure Shop games are gone. No way to recover them.

welcome to GameBoomers Timotek, it's been down for three years now, as you can see from previous posts in this thread.

BrownEyedTigre - Thanks. The Adventure Shop was run by GamesPlanet for a while and then by Nexway. Somewhere in transit the game info was lost. Very sloppy on their part and they missed out on some sales.
