One of the most frequently alarming aspects of the digital era is that games can just vanish from the face of the Earth. You can see why in some cases. I look at the disappearance of Planet 2000 on the PlayStation Store. A dreadful nothing of a game with shoddy green screen cutscenes starring porn actors inserted in-between levels (it's much less exciting than it sounds). But whatever the reason, it's not a good thing to lose games of any quality.
This currently appears to be the fate of Soda Den's Roots of Pacha. The indie life and farming sim came through a successful Kickstarter campaign and got positive reviews when it was released in late April.
But out of nowhere, the game has vanished from Steam. Any links lead you straight to the Steam home page. This comes barely three weeks after its release on the PC storefront. Its community page still exists there, however, where fans are looking for answers. Luckily, it still remains in the library of existing players.
It does look as if it may just be a mistake. The Roots of Pacha Twitter acknowledged the problem and has said it is looking into it. That was a good 12 hours ago and the page is still down.
Hopefully, it won't be long until the developer sorts the issue and can keep reaping sales of Roots of Pacha on Steam. It's planned for launch on PlayStation 5, PS4 and the Switch later this year.
