The popular English video game site Andriasang will be closing down, according to owner Anoop Gantayat, who is moving on to new and exciting opportunities. While the site will no longer be updated with news, Gantayat says that that he may do a little bit of database work there and will leave its content up for people to continue to peruse.
The site is best known for delivering breaking news from the games industry. Andriasang launched in 2008 and currently contains 14,000 articles.
Gantayat's statement on why he is closing the site can be found below:
I've decided to take up a new non game-related opportunity that I reckon will keep me super ultra busy, so I will be ceasing daily updates.
I may do some database-driven stuff and technology tests (look closely, and you may see the site's backend code base change from PHP to node.js!), but I won't be doing articles or updates. The site's archive and comments will remain in place, so you can still consult old content and share it with your children, and one day their children too.
Thanks for reading all these years, and a special thanks to everyone who registered and posted comments — even the punk asses I banned.
