Mythgard just posted a very interesting and exciting announcement! The rights for the game will be transferred to Monumental Games, who will continue development on the game. This news comes to us just a little over 3 months after it was announced the game was going into maintenance mode following money problems for Rhino Games.
Read on for the full announcement.
As you know, Mythgard was put into Maintenance Mode in early July. It was incredibly heartbreaking for us to do this to a game that we had worked so passionately on for so many years, but Rhino Games simply lacked the resources to continue. And, frankly, we were never able to market the game as well as it deserved.
Since then, I’m happy to say, an opportunity has arisen for us to resurrect the game that we love. Monumental, a studio of passionate and dedicated gamers, has expressed interest in carrying Mythgard’s torch into the future, and we will be transferring the game into their capable hands. Without this, Mythgard was doomed to slowly dwindle away. But with Monumental taking charge, it has a new chance at life. A call from the grave, if you will.
I sincerely, whole-heartedly wish them the absolute best in this endeavor. There’s even the possibility that some of my friends and teammates will join them, providing some measure of continuity to the direction of the game. I’m excited to see where they take it, and wish them glorious success.
So, who are Monumental? They're a small mobile game team based in Austin, Texas, who have 3 games under their belt: Looty Dungeon, Little Alchemist, and Storm Wars, the latter two of which are in the Card Game genre. We'll have to wait and see what they do with Mythgard.
Are you excided for this news? What do you hope to see come to the newly resurrected Mythgard? And most importantly: will we ever see a rhino in the game now?
