Ameba Pico’s death is imminent. December 17 looms over the game’s fans. Concern players have signed protest petitions, hoping to keep the game alive. Please sign both, if you care: http://bit.ly/SAVEPICO and http://chn.ge/Snq9Gn. Each time the petitions are signed and email is sent to CyberAgent, Inc., the game’s developers. Together, both have over 7,000 signatures.

You have another option to have your voice heard.

Meet Norishige Nagase. He’s the head of operations at Ameba. Mister Nagase also has public profiles on several social media sites. Feel free to send him a message. Be nice. And keep in mind that he probably only speaks Japanese. Rex_A has been kind enough to translate some messages below into Japanese for you to copy and past to Mr. Nagase.

私はアメーバピコをプレイしています。このゲームでたくさんの友だちを得ました。ゲームが閉鎖されるとコンタクトの方法も彼ら自身も失ってしまうでしょう。私の時間、お金そして感情をこのゲームに何ヶ月も投資しました。どうかもう一度考え直しピコを継続してください。

Translation: I play Ameba Pico. I have many friends in the game. I will lose connection with many of them when the game closes. I have invested my time, my money and my emotions in this game for many months. Please reconsider your decision and continue Ameba Pico.

なぜピコを閉鎖するのですか?これは無責任です。ゲームには何千人もの毎週活動しているユーザがいてその中の多数がアメーバゴールドを購入しています。
コミュニティを閉じ、再考してください。

Translation: Why are you closing Ameba Pico? This is irresponsible. The game has thousands of weekly active users – many of them buy AmebaGold. Please reconsider closing this community.
