Hello, i was trying to check out the game's page inside Blue Orange's website (http://www.blueorangegames.com/index.php/games/photosynthesi...) and there's a message that reads: "Sorry this game has been discontinued. Click here to see our entire collection!".

Does anyone know if this means it won't get reprinted or what happened to the game?

I just searched all over the site & I can't find it. Better grab a copy quick.

Whoa. That's odd. Either there is an interesting story behind what is going on...or it's a web site hack.

The game seems way too popular and well done to be discontinued.

I'm sure this is temporary.

Odd. Was planning to buy a copy...sooo I just went ahead and bought one off Amazon just in case. Not worth the risk of having to pay $$$ for it a few weeks from now if it turns up true.

I went to spend some Amazon gift card money on it today, but all the sellers on Amazon are saying that it's back ordered. It's apparently due by the end of the month, but I suspect there's a good chance it won't be available.

On the other hand, Cool Stuff has "20+" copies available, so we ordered it there, just to be safe.

Maybe the game is just totally sold out, though it's odd that they have it "discontinued" on the web site if it's just sold out. You'd think they'd keep it there to advertise when a second printing (if any) appears.

Nobody panic!! Photosynthesis is new hotness, so if Blue Orange games have indeed rapidly sold out of the first print run, and if they like to make money, they will definitely reprint it!

Yes, but the issue is it says discontinued on their website. That usually implies there won’t be any more print runs.

It is still listed on their EU site.

maybe it is distribution rights?

According to a comment to a visitor post on their Facebook page, it’s just a website error.

Any rumors heard about the game being out of stock or bought by another company are untrue, and most likely the result of a website glitch that took the Photosynthesis page down for a few hours. The game is in stock in our warehouse, as well as in stores across the country.
