I am assuring to my self to be brave writing this article and publish it to public. I am trying to be open as possible and hope you will learn from my story. I am freelance web developer since 2004 until this day. Freelance world nowadays is different than when I was decided to go as freelancer. I want to share to people whom decided to be full time freelancer.
The reason I choose my path as freelance because I can’t get a job because of my education background, Computerize Accounting even it’s under Information System Faculty. My degree is S. Kom, computer degree, holding same title like IT graduates. I have good GPA score and I don’t know the exact reason why some companies reject me after last interview. That’s bit of my story why I am started as freelancer.
One shocking news for me. Mochi Media is out of service on 31 March 2014. I don’t know the real reason why they get out from flash games business. The flash game publisher quite panic when knowing Mochi Media is out of business. There’s a lot flash games under Mochi Media using their API for advertisements, leader boards and scores, which means flash games released under Mochi Media feed will be broken.
Some publishers report they can still run the games without problem but few Mozilla Firefox release will not work. I was missed the deadline to download games from their server and now I am considering to find new alternatives to Mochi Media. I am pretty concern about games licensing because those games was developed by other party. Mochi Media state on their announcement, publisher should contact developer directly if publisher want to host flash game on their games website.
This is sad moment. The most trusted flash game distributor is game over.
