Greatly sorry for the radio silence lately. We've kept silent as we've been trying to find a publisher to get Conquest out of Early Access and we didn't want to talk about anything until the deal was done. Unfortunately, after months of back and forth it is clear that the deal is not happening and Kihon is going to have to close shop. The bottom line is we aren't making money and we don't have the marketing capital or runway to turn things around.
We are devastated to say the least. We've spent over two years & a great deal of personal funds to get to this point and to not even see it launch is heartbreaking. We love this game and the community and do not want to give up. And so we wont! We've worked out a deal with our investors to allow the founders to keep ownership of the IP. We are working through the legal paperwork now.
What does this mean for the game? Well, once we have ownership we are going to migrate the server over to a cheaper solution since we will not be doing a massive campaign. The goal here is that it will allow us to keep the servers up for the long haul and we can attempt to grow the game via word of mouth and PR rather than a marketing campaign. We can push to launch on steam, we have the first expansion ready to launch, and we have the mobile build ready to launch. We just need to get our overhead a bit lower first by migrating the server.
We'll need significant downtime to do this as we are no longer able to work on this full time. It is more of a passion project at this point. I'll post more as we get into the thick of it. Once we have it switched over we can talk launch and expansion.
Thank you guys so much for taking interest in the title. You've been a huge support and while the path hasn't been what we had hoped we still hope to deliver a great game with a long future.
