PlayCatan goes online again on Feb.18 for the duration of the Early Access Phase of Catan Universe

Despite the progress made during the last weeks, it seems that Catan Universe will remain in its early access phase longer than expected. For this reason, USM, the publisher of Catan Universe, has approached us with a proposal to take on and continue the operation and service of PlayCatan for the time being. We highly appreciate this move. Of course, this still means that PlayCatan will eventually be closed, but at least during the early access phase of Catan Universe we can continue offering you the familiar gaming experience on PlayCatan.

In the next days, together with USM we will provide the technical requirements that will make it possible to put PlayCatan online again under the new conditions. The expected start date for PlayCatan is Thursday, February 18 (10 a.m. CET).

Chrome does no longer support Java

Chrome does no longer support the Java plugin unfortunately. The games against human players are still working in Chrome, but the games against computer players, however, are needing a functional java plugin. While we still recommend Chrome for the games against human players, because this browser is offering the most stable engine at the moment, we have to ask you to use a different browser for the games against computer players which supports Java like Firefox, Internet Explorer 11 or Safari as long as Oracle (the developer of Java) is not offering a new plugin for Chrome.
