Yes it’s dead. You must have missed the announcement (archive link as does not seem to exist on site):

Thanks for the link but it's a post from 2015 and I m sure it was still working a few days ago :/

The announcement said it was not closing down immediately, but would be kept open until 2016. Possible they forgot to take down the server then, and only remembered recently, or even forgot about it altogether and it got switched off when they did not renew the server/DNS.

then it seems weird to me that they were still approving new games for distribution (until the site died a few days ago)

We were indeed still maintaining it, then we hit some server issues which would have made that maintenance significantly more expensive. I'm not sure personally what we'll be doing with it (I don't work on that side of things), but I imagine there will be an official announcement soon.

By the way, I had to use an archive link as the entry from the blog is missing. Comparing it to the version available from the archive link several months in 2015 and 2016 have been removed/deleted/hidden. It would be good to have them restored, especially with them including important announcements like that. You can grab them from the archive if there is no other copy of them.
