A MESSAGE FROM CMON, WITH PERMISSION OF MYTHIC GAMES

Dear valued members of our gaming community,

We hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. We wanted to share some important news with you. CMON, the publisher behind popular games like Zombicide, Massive Darkness 2, Death May Die, Blood Rage, and many others, has recently acquired the intellectual properties of both HEL and Anastyr from Mythic Games.

We understand that this news may bring mixed emotions, and we want to be upfront with you about the developments.

The Challenging News

Regrettably, as Mythic Games announced, they will no longer be able to deliver their Kickstarter campaigns for HEL: The Last Saga and Anastyr. As you are a backer of these campaigns, we understand that this is disappointing.

Upon careful evaluation of both titles, we have concluded that neither HEL: The Last Saga nor Anastyr are currently ready for publication in their current state and will require substantial effort to complete them.

We want to assure you that we are committed to delivering quality gaming experiences, and we appreciate your understanding and support during our development.

The Good News

Under our purview, both games will go through an extensive development and play-testing process at CMON, and these new versions will be offered to the public in future. We have big plans for both of these worlds, including offering you, the original Mythic Backers who paid for the lowest pledge level and up, a free English or French copy of each re-developed base game, if you wish to receive it.

What this means for you

When the campaigns of HEL and Anastyr launched, we, like many of you, were excited by the promise of what each of those worlds had to offer. You, the Mythic Backers, took a chance on what those games could be, and we’d like to acknowledge your efforts by offering you a free copy of the new CMON versions for each title that you backed with Mythic. If you are a paid Mythic Backer of HEL at the Berserk pledge or higher, you have the option of getting a free copy of CMON’s HEL. If you are a paid Mythic Backer of Anastyr at the Companion Level or higher, you have the option of getting a free copy of CMON’s Anastyr. This offer is for the base games only and not possible future expansions. If you’re interested in this offer, you will be responsible for third party charges such as shipping and VAT.

It’s important to state that these games will not be the same Mythic games you initially backed. As mentioned above, after a deep dive into the available materials, we determined that both games needed significant work and development. As a result, both games will be new products, different from what was offered during the Mythic campaigns.

Mythic Games will send notifications to the appropriate Mythic Backers asking you for permission to share your backer information with us at CMON. If you approve, we will create your order in our system indicating you are part of the new HEL or Anastyr project and are entitled to one copy of the game(s) we will produce. Once your order is created, you’ll be kept informed of developments on those projects. Please note, this offer is not a settlement taken on behalf of Mythic Games – it is simply a gift from CMON.

Thank you,

The CMON team

FAQ 

In an effort to streamline this process for all Mythic backers, and to answer some of the questions that may arise, please read below.

WHO IS CMON?

CMON is the producer and publisher of over 80 games, including 50+ crowdfunded titles. Our award-winning and best-selling line-up includes Death May Die, Blood Rage, Rising Sun, and the Zombicide family of games. You can find more information about us at www.cmon.com.

IS THIS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN CMON AND MYTHIC GAMES?

No, beyond CMON’s total acquisition of some Mythic IPs including HEL and Anastyr, there is no business relationship between the two. Moving forward, CMON is focused on the extensive development of the titles and offering them to the public in future.

IS CMON TAKING OVER MYTHIC GAMES CAMPAIGN PAGES FOR HEL AND ANASTYR

No, CMON will not be taking over either Kickstarter project or any Gamefound campaigns.

WHAT WILL BE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE MYTHIC VERSIONS AND THE CMON GAMES?

While it is too early to get into specifics, and a lot can change between now and when they are ready, we are currently working to make the games stay true to the original vision while making sure that the quality of the final product lives up to our standards. For HEL, we’re focusing the content on fewer, but more robust “stories”, while for Anastyr, our development is concentrating on reducing the complexity found in the number of regions. Again, this can change, as we work toward creating the best experience each of these games can offer.

WHICH MYTHIC BACKERS MAY REQUEST A FREE GAME?

If you are a paid Mythic Backer of HEL at the Berserk pledge or higher, you have the option of getting a free copy of CMON’s HEL.  If you are a paid Mythic Backer of Anastyr at the Companion Level or higher, you have the option of getting a free copy of CMON’s Anastyr. If you have multiple eligible pledges, you may elect to receive additional copies up to the number of extra pledges you made.

Please note that any stretch goals or optional buys promised by Mythic Games are not part of these new CMON versions of HEL and Anastyr.

We are unable to pay for third party charges such as shipping and VAT on these complimentary copies.

HOW DO I GET MY FREE GAME?

Mythic Games will contact paid backers of Mythic Games’ HEL and Anastyr campaigns at some point in the future, with instructions on how you can be added to the CMON database so you can receive your free copy (of each game you pledged and paid for as a Mythic Backer).

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE TO DECIDE IF I WANT THE FREE GAME(S)?

When you receive instructions on how to get your free game, there will be a cut-off date for responses clearly indicated on the form. Make sure you get your response in before the cut-off date.

WHAT IF I SIGN UP FOR MY FREE COPY BUT CHANGE MY MIND?

No problem! Mythic Backers who request your free copy of the game(s), all you need to do is not pay the 3rd party shipping and/or VAT charges when requested by CMON when the time comes.

WHEN DO I NEED TO PAY FOR 3RD PARTY CHARGES LIKE SHIPPING AND TAX – HOW MUCH WOULD THIS BE?

3rd party charges will be payable via our online systems, as per the usual CMON process.  We will provide an estimate closer to the date of production – VAT will be calculated on the retail price of the CMON versions of the games, which will be determined at a later date.

WHICH LANGUAGE WILL THE FREE GAMES BE IN?

English or French only.

WILL THE MYTHIC GAMES VERSIONS OF HEL OR ANASTYR BE RELEASED?

There are no plans for the products seen in the original Mythic campaigns to be released.

WHEN WILL THE CMON VERSION OF THE GAMES BE READY?

We don’t have solid estimates yet. Please follow our social media for updates.

Thank you for reading! We hope you join us in the new evolutions of HEL and Anastyr! If you have additional questions, send us a message at support.cmon.com

  • Tja bin leider ein Hel Opfer 🙁
    Der Deal mit Cmon ist leider völliger Mist- man bekommt eine neue Version ohne alles irgendwann und bezahlt vat und shipping
    Was mythic hier abzieht ist schlicht und einfach Betrug ( wir reden über ca. 3-4 Mio da ja der pm abgeschlossen wurde und dort neben dem Versand in der Regel auch nachgeordert wird)
    Ja KS ist kein Kauf wer aber einige Spiele produziert und dafür das Geld anderer Projekte nimmt handelt in meinen Augen illegal.

    • Aber dann passt das doch zu CMON die sind da kein Stück besser.

      Aber waren Hel und Anastyr damals nicht red flag Kandidaten?

      Ich meine mich erinnern zu können das damals schon diskutiert wurde ob sie das überhaupt noch stemmen können

      • HEL nein, Anastyr ja.

        Ich hab auch Darkest Dungeon und Hel schon abgeschrieben.

        Vielleicht bekomme ich von DD noch was raus. Sonst hab ich 330$ versenkt.

        Bei Anastyr bin ich zum Glück erst gar nicht mehr eingestiegen.

  • Tja.. das ist leider so bei Kickstartern aber auch beu etsy ist es mir schon eimal so ergangen! Die Lieferkosten, auch wenn ich nichts erhalten habe waren dann weg bzw. um sonst!!
    Darum mache ich bei sowas wue Kickstartern erst garnicht mit!

  • Ich habe HEL mit 235$ gebackt, wieder mal ein Grund mehr keine Kickstarter mehr zu machen. Schade, dass die im Prinzip gute Idee Sachen zu finanzieren so oft ausgenutzt wird um die Leute um ihr Geld zu bringen.
    Und zu CMON, CMON bekommt nie mehr Geld von mir, der Support ist eine Frechheit.

    • Ich muss hier mal den Support von CMON verteidigen.
      Ich hatte Bloodbourne gebackt und durch einen Umzug ist da bei mir nix angekommen.
      Nach einer Anfrage meinerseits hat sich ein Support Mitarbeiter richtig reingehängt, damit ich mein Spiel bekomme, da sind einige Mails geschrieben worden, und ich hatte den Eindruck, dass der Konzern selbst das eher ausgesessen hätte, wenn dieser Support Mitarbeiter nicht gewesen wäre.
      Was Hel und Anastyr angeht (bin Backer bei beiden) kann ich CMON keinen Vorwurf machen.
      Was mich allerdings aufregt ist, dass Mythic bereits Shipping und Zoll eingesammelt hat, obwohl das Spiel wohl weit entfernt von fertig war. Das mit dem Spiel kann ich noch halbwegs akzeptieren, aber die Unterschlagung der Lieferkosten empfinde ich als Betrug. Und bezüglich Support habe ich hier eher schlechte Erfahrungen bei Mythic gemacht.
