The company that let us play The Secret of Monkey Island in our browser and just started letting people play a sort of Guitar Hero on Facebook is shutting down.
The company also owns the Torque engine which is used in many independent web and disc-based games. The engine is now up for sale.
Word of the closing popped up on the Instant Action forums and was confirmed in a post at TorquePowered.com that states:
Today, InstantAction informed employees that it will be winding down operations. While we are shutting down the InstantAction.com website and Instant Jam game, Torquepowered.com will continue to operate while InstantAction explores opportunities with potential buyers for Torque. We thank all of our past and current customers for their support.
