Google Stadia released one final game before the shutdown on January 18

Google Stadia is officially shutting down on January 18th, and the team behind the video game streaming service has gifted the world a warm game, the final title to be released to the platform and used to test many of Stadia’s features before its launch. .

Anyone with a Google Chrome browser can now play Worm Game, And it is heavily inspired by the classic game Snake. It’s not the most graphically advanced game, but it has multiple levels, the ability to change the color of your worm, and four modes – Campaign, Arcade, Multiplayer, and Build.

It’s also important to note that if you want to try out Worm Game, you’ll need to do so by January 18, when Google Stadia officially shuts down and it becomes unplayable.

It’s a rare look behind the scenes of game development, and a fascinating look at how the team helped bring the stadia to life.

“Play the game that came to Stadia before Stadia came to the world,” wrote the Stadia Platform Content Team. “‘Warm Game’ is a humble title we’ve used to test many aspects of Stadia, starting before the public release in 2019 and continuing into 2022. It won’t win Game of the Year, but it’s something the Stadia team spent a lot of time playing. We thought we’d share it with you. Thanks for playing and for everything. “

Along with the warm game, the Stadia team has another surprise for those who invested in the failed platform as it will be released. “Self-Service Tool to Enable Bluetooth Connections on Your Stadia Controller” Next week. We don’t have exact details on how this will work, but those will come “at launch.”

Google Stadia launched in 2019 and is a cloud gaming service that allows users to stream video games, including AAA titles such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, to devices running Google Chrome. Since everything runs on Google’s cloud service, it doesn’t matter how powerful the device is.

Google announced in September 2022 that Stadia would shut down in January 2023, but it made a generous gesture to “all Stadia hardware purchases made on the Google Store and all game and additional content purchases made through the Stadia Store.”

Although Stadia hasn’t been live for a month yet, the technology behind it will live on as Google has already started offering it as a white label product. I mean, “Hey, it’s powered by Google Stadia!” It goes without saying that other companies may use the technology. AT&T already took advantage of this when offering Batman: Arkham Knight to its users.
