    Won a code on Twitter for this and never started it. Hopefully the devs make the achievements doable offline.

    I remember playing Killer Queen Black on an arcade cabinet at Evo 2016 in Las Vegas with some random people. Personally that was for me a highlight of the event.
    You more likely played the original arcade game, Killer Queen, of which KQB is based upon: https://www.killerqueenarcade.com/

    To anyone who enjoyed KQB and lives in or near a US Metro area-- I highly recommend you find out when your local community's "league" night is and check it out in person. The community around KQ is really great.

    This game was atrocious to me, but I do feel bad for the folks who worked on it. I'm sure there is a fanbase who is now out of luck.
    A filthy degenerate obsessed with 2D.

    Exactly that. I wasn't aware that it's a separate game.

    So I skimmed some docs for Amazon GameSparks because I couldn’t understand why it was so integrated. It looks like GameSparks automatically handles threading issues, for example, with calls that need to be synchronous. It also gives a simplified fire and forget access to backend database services. It’s possible it was embedded in tons of the game’s code.

    What I cannot understand is GameSparks was in beta. That’s a pretty risky bet for a small indie to make. It’s weird Amazon killed it, though, it’s basically just another Cloud API that leverages their AWS stuff. It seems like it could be an ongoing offering but maybe if they figure their Amazon Gamd Studios is defunct there’s no reason.
    I say the modest sales/usage played a part in the decision to close everything down. Likely would take hundreds of hours to refactor GameSparks out- and the dev company doesn't think it's worth it. Definitely not impossible, simply not worth it.

    Most folks meet on the KQB Discord and a separate "Bee Game" Discord to set up times to play. Recommend going there is anyone's look for play before the end.

    What a baseless generation on a community chat service. If this is about the pedo part, there's gonna be bad eggs in some communities that get kicked out. If this is about lifestyle choices, who the hell cares if someone's a fury of you've got a common interest.

    There's a new update from the devs about the achievement changes on their site:
    Unfortunately they won't have enough time until the shutdown to change them
