The company that let us play The Secret of Monkey Island in our browser and just started letting people play a sort of Guitar Hero on Facebook is shutting down.

The original jetpack shooter returns, as InstantAction gets ready to debut their web-based version of Starsiege: Tribes at the Game Developers Conference next week.
