Here's the explanation from the lead developer:

Hello adventurers,

Greetings from the whole Pearl’s Peril team! I’m Andy, the Lead Designer for the game. I’d like to explain some of the changes going on right now and talk about the future of the game.

From your comments on Facebook and through our customer support, we know that some of you are not super happy with the new Facebook makeover. Your feedback is very valuable to us and we want you to assure you that we care.

Here’s the thing, though, we MUST do this makeover on Facebook.

The old version of Pearl’s Peril on Facebook runs on a technology called “Flash”. Flash was the standard technology for web browser games for many years. But now, it has been retired by its maker and some internet browsers are starting to block the use of Flash. You can read more about that in the following articles:

We had to either retire Pearl’s Peril on Facebook OR build a new version on a new technology. We of course wanted to keep the game live on Facebook and thus rebuilt it from the ground up using a new technology called “WebGL”. Like with every new technology there are bugs.

We are working hard to bring back the performance and quality you expect as fast as we can. It will take a little more time, but we will get there. The entire team is dedicated to this and would like to thank you for your patience.

There is a silver lining!

With this new version comes important new features to the game that you’ve all been waiting for. In the next weeks I’ll be back here to talk about these in more detail. Some of them are already finished and we can’t wait to release them as soon as WebGL is out 100%.
