Project overview


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.

Our commitments
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 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.

Contribution requirements 
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 Anastyr
The rules and game system are written, the core game box is almost finished, and our teams have made progress on the expansions even though we had to put our teams on temporary break. All miniatures are sculpted, and all illustrations are done. However, the molds are not produced.


ANASTYR had an amazing campaign on Kickstarter, with over $1M pledged by over 5,5K backers! A tremendous shout out to all our Kickstarter campaign backers, their support unlocked stretch goals galore, a full expansion, the Bone Marsh, and mind-blowing minis. 

Anastyr is a cooperative board game for 1 to 4 players, who embody powerful and valiant heroes who set out to save the world threatened by the Queen of Dragons.  Players assess immediate threats, plan for them, and dispatch them.

You use up to 3 actions (player count dependent) to traverse the land, tame wild beasts and guardians of the wild, prepare and execute powerful combos and annihilate your enemies.  As you move through each region, you scroll through that region’s adventure tiles, taking you one step closer to the final battle against Queen Anastyr. 

 Whether you play one-off scenarios or the campaign mode of the game, this barbaric low fantasy beat ‘em up will provide hours of enemy-crushing fun!  

 The ultra-dynamic game mechanics that allow overpowering combos, tile scrolling, and fighting on all kinds of mounts are freely inspired by beat 'em up type video games. The incredible art of this barbaric and primitive universe imagined by famous artist Paolo Parente is brought to life thanks to spectacular and ultra-detailed miniatures, the mounts and mounted Heroes even include magnetic connection systems.   


 If you backed the Kickstarter campaign, the Pledge Manager is where you will finalize your pledge, provide your mailing address, and pay for shipping and any applicable taxes. 

In your Gamefound cart, you’ll find credits, EQUAL to the amount that you paid during the Kickstarter campaign.

You now need to COMPLETE the following steps: 

1.Choose the pledge level that you want. It can be IDENTICAL to the one you chose during the Kickstarter campaign OR a DIFFERENT one. You will also select which language you’d like your pledge in this step. 

2.(OPTIONAL) Select any number of add-ons and additional pledges. 

3. On the Check-out page, please enter all of your shipping details. Additionally, please add your phone number, as we cannot ship items to you if we don’t have your phone number to provide to the courier selected by our distribution hub. Your shipping costs will also be detailed on this page. 

4. IF the total cost of items in your cart exceeds the amount you pledged on Kickstarter (the credits that you see imported), then you can pay the difference shown when you check out.  


If you backed ANASTYR during the Kickstarter campaign, you unlocked the Sylfae Avatar IF you pledged any of the following pledge levels DURING the Kickstarter campaign: COMPANION, DRAGON, OR CARAVAN.

This large miniature will accompany each game pledge you take in the pledge manager when that pledge is added to a QUALIFYING pledge that was made in the Kickstarter campaign. 
For example, if you pledged for a Companion pledge during the Kickstarter and grab a Dragon pledge and a Caravan pledge in your pledge manager, then you will get 2 AVATAR miniatures for free. 

 The Free Avatar miniature will be added to your order AFTER the closure of the Pledge Manager. You will NOT be able to see the Free AVATAR in your cart during the Pledge Manager.

We've included more add-ons that were not available during the KS campaign. To check those out, make sure to check the “New Addons” section on the left-hand side of the project page. You will find elements such as Neoprene Dashboards or Mat, Sleeve bundles, paint wash options for the minis in your pledges, and more!  


 Please note that the information which was displayed during the KS campaign was shipping estimates, as the pricing was not finalized with our distribution hubs. Shipping was NOT charged during the KS campaign, therefore when you checked out of the KS campaign, it appeared as $0.00. 


We have tried our best to provide the most competitive quotes and we are utilizing multiple distribution hubs for fulfillment. The shipping charges have increased to match our most recent quotations and fully reflect our estimated costs for shipping based on the prices and market conditions at this time. 

Remember that you can incrementally pay for your pledge and shipping fees over the entire duration of the pledge manager.
Shipping in the USA, European Union, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom is CUSTOMS FRIENDLY, meaning you will NOT have to pay customs duty when you receive your pledge. Backers from these countries will not pay import taxes. 

We will be charging VAT during our Pledge Managers. We had previously been paying VAT by paying for those costs from our profit margin, however, the current situation with increased ocean freight and higher raw materials costs has made it impossible to maintain a healthy margin without charging extra. 

We are trying to maintain the cost of our games and shipping at a reasonable level, without transferring the increase in cost to our valued backers, which leaves us only with the option of charging VAT and our shipping charges reflecting our true costs.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly and we thank you for your understanding. 

VAT is calculated for countries that are part of the European Union or the UK AFTER you add all your items in your cart and checkout. Please check the infographic below for the VAT % applicable to your destination country.  

For the Rest of the World, you could be asked to pay import fees and/or VAT based on your country's regulations.

USA: Your pledge will be shipped within the USA. You will NOT be charged sales tax during the Pledge Manager, you will NOT pay any import fees 
Canada: Your pledge will be shipped from within Canada. You WILL be charged GST. 
EU/ UK: Please see the table here for VAT. Your pledge will be shipped from within the EU for the EU countries and within the UK for everyone in the UK. You will NOT pay any import taxes or VAT at the time of the delivery.

 Australia/ NEW. Zealand: Your pledge will be shipped from Australia. You WILL be charged GST

 Asia: Your pledge will be shipped from VFI Asia and fulfilled by local distributors within your region. Please consult your local tax authorities to determine any tax liability concerning receipt of your pledge(s).

  IMPORTANT NOTE: we will not be able to split up orders and ship to multiple locations or change addresses to a different country after the closure of the Pledge Manager, as this will have an impact on the VAT due.  To avoid confusion, we will be shipping to the location that you designate during the Pledge Manager, but it can be to a different address within the same region (as long as VAT charges remain the same). 

We allow a maximum of 1 delivery location per backer, regardless of the number of pledges that have been ordered. 

The estimated shipping date for the game is JULY 2023. However, there are factors that we do not have any control over, such as the Covid-19 pandemic that we cannot predict and could affect the delivery date.
