MYTHIC GAMES IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!
The year 2022 has been a very difficult year for crowdfunding based companies and Mythic Games has not been spared by this crisis. The consequences of the COVID and then the war in Ukraine has resulted in very significant additional costs which, when it comes to producing and delivering games launched in crowdfunding before these two crises, cost much more than the printing and shipping estimates of the time.
Mythic Games took on the extra costs out of its cash flow for as long as it could. We hoped that these additional costs would be temporary and that the situation would return to the "normal" pre-COVID. This was not the case and the war in Ukraine even amplified the inflation phenomenon.
Faced with these two successive crises, we took drastic measures by reducing our expenses, our staff, our portfolio of games, looking for new sources of revenue, investors, and asking our backers to contribute to the extra costs.
Despite these challenges, we have successfully adapted to the new global environment and are focused on delivering all our projects. For some projects, we are forced to ask for a participation in the extra costs not foreseen at the time of the crowdfunding campaign. We are looking for solutions for each project, which may not necessarily be the same, and we will keep the backers involved informed.
Being short-staffed, we have had to reduce the frequency of our updates, and we are forced to work on only one project at a time. At the moment and until the end of the year, we are focused on the delivery of the 6: Siege project.
Backers who do not wish to pay the additional contribution to deliver the game can request a refund by sending an email at email@example.com. Refunds are made in chronological order of requests, and they are made at the beginning of every month according to a capped amount revised each month and calculated so as not to weaken the company's cash flow and not to compromise the delivery of projects. These refunds can therefore take a long time (several months of waiting). If the situation improves, this delay may decrease.
We had to ask Darkest Dungeon backers for a contribution due to the exceptional over-costs related to the combined crises of COVID and War in Ukraine, which allowed us to deliver wave 1 of the game to over 15,000 backers who agreed to pay this contribution. We also recently asked for a contribution from 6: Siege backers, and since the minimum threshold needed to launch production was reached, we are able to launch production and are aiming for delivery to backers by the end of the year.
The next request for contributions, which was announced in wave 1, will be for wave 2 of Darkest Dungeon, i.e. non-English language versions and all expansions to the game outside of Crimson Court.
The status of 6: Siege
The game is going into production. We have started the exchanges with the printer, to check that there are no transmission or printing errors. We will have to give them a final proof by the end of June. Delivery to backers will begin in October and should be completed by the end of December.
6: Siege - The Board Game is an asymmetrical and tactical game based on the acclaimed shooter video game from Ubisoft Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six :Siege, where Agents from different task forces are recruited into Team Six. They are training to avert a global crisis and compete in friendly matches, either as Attackers or Defenders.
In this fast-paced and tense board game, action is lethal and will keep you on the edge of your sit ! You will play either the Defenders or the Attackers and will evolve in destructible 3D environments. You will attempt to fulfill the mission objectives by composing and coordinating your squad of powerful Operators and lead them to the victory.
It’s an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master game with an extremly rewarding learning curve. Each map, each mission and team combination make for a fresh game. Create your own metagames and confront your own tactics against new opponents… then adapt to overcome them !
