Users in shock, BitGamer closes for good!

One of the biggest and best games tracker BitGamer is closed! Without a warning bitGAMER users see this info on main site:

2006 - 2012

We've reached the end of the ride. bitGAMER has been an amazingly fun ride, but all rides must come to an end.

For those who don't know, bitGAMER began as a small sister-site of Underground Gamer. What started as a side-project of several UG staff members quickly grew into a 65,000 member behemoth with an identity all its own. Our small hobby project turned into something that went well beyond all of our dreams.

Of course, you all know that the legal climate has changed over the years, so we won't bore you with that stuff. More importantly, the founders are simply ready to move on with their lives. Running an immensely popular gaming tracker is rewarding, but it's also a very stressful, and often thankless, task. We hope that closing this door will open other doors in our lives, and that we can take all of the lessons we've learned from bitGAMER into the next phase of our lives.

The bitGAMER community has been incredible since the beginning. We want to take this moment to thank each and every member of the community who contributed in any way and allowed this community to thrive for so long.

Thank you,
This is a big shock for bitGAMER users, To help refugees find a new home GGn (Gazelle Games) open it doors for bitGAMER users (currently closed due exceed signup limit). GGn sysop add info that they will open signup again when they finish server upgrade to handle more users.

  1. GGn has upgraded their servers and reopened for Bitgamer refugees ONLY to register with their old Bitgamer login details (they've been working with BG).

    BCG (Black Cat Games) is also still open for the time being to take on Bitgamer refugees, they've already taken on a large number and their servers have been getting hammered, so take advantage while you can, you even get a 50GB upload bonus.

    Both these excellent trackers offer a warm welcome and even a Bitgamer refugee forum for catch up on old friends Etc.
