Blast Out - Dheekay


Dear players and friends,

It is with heavy heart that we have to inform you that we will close down the Blastout game servers for good on 2018-05-30. We are really proud of Blastout, a game we have poured our passion into over the last three years, but the fact is that the game has not gained the traction needed to be successful.

We would like to thank everyone in our fantastic community that have shared the amazing ride with us during the development of Blastout. Without your support, feedback and tests the game might not have seen the light of day to begin with. Thank you!
