Four months ago, we posted an urgent message asking for your help to get Loresmyth through the COVID-19 crisis. After a very sobering look at our situation, we had realized that without an extraordinary uptick in sales (and exceptional support for our Heroic Challenges Kickstarter campaign), Loresmyth might be forced to shut its doors, possibly for good. So how are we doing now?
Things are looking up!
While we (and our partners) are still feeling the impact of COVID-19 in various ways (such as logistics), we can safely say Loresmyth has recovered from the low point we reached in April. We are in a much better position and our most dire scenarios have been averted. Sales are increasingly strong, in part due to Remarkable Shops releasing to the public early. The Heroic Challenges Kickstarter turned out to be a big success, which helped our financial stability too.
Running a startup business is complicated–things are always changing, demanding that you deal with the unexpected. That’s why it’s so amazing to see that the biggest factor in Loresmyth’s turnaround was something that hasn’t changed: You guys, and your incredible support.
Your Support Did It
Everyone who pre-ordered books, backed us on Kickstarter, took part in our sales, and waited patiently for their orders to arrive is to thank for keeping Loresmyth alive during these insecure times. We’ve received a slew of emails from customers over the past few months asking about the best way to support us and telling us how much they love our work.
The patience, positivity, and generosity have been overwhelming. The community around Loresmyth has turned out to be the most wonderful, passionate group of gamers we’ve ever seen, and we’re so grateful that our work has inspired so much joy, excitement, and creativity.
