I’m sad to announce that En Masse Entertainment will be ending service for the North American and European versions of Kritika Online as of Tuesday, April 30, 2019. We’d like to thank all the Kritika players, past and present, who have played the game at some point in the past near two years of service.
Today, Wednesday, March 6, from 2–4 p.m. PST we will be placing Kritika into maintenance mode to complete several changes to prepare for service sunset, outlined below:
- Players will be unable to create new accounts for Kritika Online.
- EMP purchase is still possible through En Masse sites, but you cannot spend EMP within Kritika. During the Wednesday, March 6, maintenance, we are removing all EMP items from the shop. Attempts to purchase EMP from an in-game source will no long direct players through the Kritika EMP purchase flow.
- At the same time, all shop items will be reduced to 0 Kred, so purchase to your heart’s content! Which brings us to…
- Kred Conversion: We will take a snapshot of your account Kred total at the beginning of maintenance. This Kred amount will be converted back to EMP at a 1 to 1 ratio so that you can use it in other EME titles if you desire. This converted EMP will be granted to your total balance by Friday, March 15.
It’s been a great experience seeing the Kritika Online community grow and we hope that you choose to continue as part of the En Masse Entertainment community. If you’ve ever had your eye on another EME game, or already play them, community manager Bear.Shoes has planned an event extravaganza to send Kritika off into the sunset in style, while also starting your journey in other EME games off with a big boost.
If you just want more Kritika Online, we’re working with the developer, Allm, to get you started in the Korean Kritika service. All accounts who have logged in between January 1, 2019 and the end of maintenance on Wednesday, March 6, will receive a code via email by Friday, March 22 (as long as you’ve signed up for marketing mails) that will grant the following on the Korean Kritika service:

On behalf of the team at En Masse Entertainment, I’d like to thank you all for playing Kritika Online. We’ll see you in-game and on stream, leading up to service closure on April 30, 2019.
