Jago Studios Announces the End of GPK: The Game

Garbage Pail Kids: The Game is no more. Jago Studios, the company behind the GPK mobile game, announced today via their social channels that the game would be discontinued. The game was removed effective today from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The company announced current players would be able to continue to play the game until its final shutdown on 3/31/24.

The game garnered some excitement from collectors as it was the first licensed video game featuring GPKs. However, after launching in 2019, the company quickly stopped fixing bugs and updating the game. This led to the majority of original players to stop playing. The game however made a comeback one year later with a relaunch in 2020. The company has been continuing to launch new content within the game since then. The game was able to create a small but loyal following who’s dedicated players will miss.
