Hatch Kids closed down on March 31st, 2021.

Thank you for playing Hatch Kids.

Hey Hatch Kids friends

We are sorry to share the news that Hatch Kids is closing down. Even though the service is beloved by our users and exceeded many of our expectations, we have made the difficult decision to stop developing Hatch Kids further at this point in time as we are focusing the company on other areas.

We will say goodbye, farewell, and turn off Hatch Kids servers on March 31st, 2021.

Hatch Entertainment continues to develop its game streaming technology to power cloud native games. We believe that the future of gaming is cloud native and we will continue to strive towards that vision.

We launched Hatch Kids in its initial beta form on Google Play in the summer of 2019. Some of you came onboard already then, as beta tester families and early gamers. Your feedback on the app, its user interface, as well as the game selection, was important when we designed and optimised the Hatch Kids app and its user experience. Like our design lead Jessica says, it was co-created with you kids and families, so we thank you!

We’ve also had a great time working with our beloved developer partners. Their amazing games have blown us and our gamers away time after time, showcasing what kids games can offer. They are interesting, full of creativity and adventures, they provide opportunities for learning but most of all, they are FUN. They are fun for kids and parents alike, creating great moments for families to enjoy together.

Hatch Kids has been a true technology pioneer, using the on-demand cloud streaming for kids games from the beginning. We are so proud we made it to Apple’s App Store as one of the first cloud gaming services on iOS. Our bespoke kids edutainment service was also handpicked for the Samsung Kids Home experience.

We partnered up with the greatest when it comes to helping and supporting families: Unesco, Save the Children, and Mannerheimin Lastensuojeluliitto. The game selection was inspired by the world renowned Finnish early childhood education curriculum that inspires playful learning and discovery. It’s pedagogy worth celebrating!

Thank you so much for your feedback, hours of gaming and love for Hatch Kids. We enjoyed this journey immensely, and we are sure that the future of gaming for children is full of new innovations.
