This is a message from: Futura

In an effort to get our products into the proper hands (who will actually appreciate it) we will reach out to those individuals. To the real fans and supporters, you know who you are (and we know who you are). You will be hearing from us at FL. We hope this will reduce our products being sold at second or third-hand markets and reselling them at exorbitant prices. We hate that our fans are fighting against at machine (sic). We want this to be a unique and fair experience for every person.

Because of that:
FUTURARCHIVES is now indefinitely closed.

Thank you for your participation and your understanding.

Real humans will prevail (always).
