Google Stadia releases one last game before it closes on January 18th
Google Stadia will be officially shut down on January 18th, and the team behind the video game streaming service gifted players Worm Game, the last title to be released for the platform that was being used to test several Stadia features before its launch.
Anyone who owns the Google Chrome browser can play Worm Game now. It takes great inspiration from the classic game, Snake. The game may not have advanced graphics, but it contains several stages, the ability to change the color of the worm, and 4 phases: Campaign, Arcade, Multiplayer, and Building.
It’s also worth noting that if you want to try Worm Game, you must do so by January 18th, as it will become unplayable when Google Stadia officially shuts down.
Besides Worm Game, the Stadia team has another surprise for those who have invested in the platform that failed, as it will release “Self-service tool for enabling Bluetooth connections on a Stadia console next week. We don’t have details on how it will work yet, but those will come “when it’s released.”
Launched in 2019, Google Stadia is a cloud gaming service that allows users to stream video games, including big-budget (AAA) titles like Cyberpunk and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, to devices with Google Chrome. It doesn’t matter how powerful the device is either, everything runs on Google Cloud.
Google announced in September 2022 that it would close Stadia in January 2023, but offered to “refund all Stadia hardware purchases made through the Google Store, and all purchases of games and additional content made through the Stadia Store.”
