YES, IT’S A REAL THING!
This is Ian Starcher, Chief Marketing & Business Development Officer for Ulisses North America.
I wanted to reach out to all of you to let you know that there is in fact an agreement for Ulisses acquiring Myth and Myth: Dark Frontier. MERCS, LLC and Ulisses have worked everything out, no more negotiations, everyone’s happy. There are some niggly details that come with transferring Intellectual Property, trademarks, etc. that can drag out longer than desired by anyone, but they are important. Lawyers get paid by the quarter-hour.
However, I didn’t want any more time to pass for you to hear some sort of announcement from Ulisses. You deserve to be kept abreast of all goings on. I will be making a more grand public announcement soon, but like I said I didn’t want to make you the backers to wait any longer for some assurance this is a real thing.
One of the things I’m very happy about is that all conversations between Megacon Games and Ulisses was driven by the principle “What’s best for the backers”. That is Ulisses first, most pressing focus.
Who’s Ulisses North America?

Things are going to be better.
We’ve already dedicated a lot of resources to make you happy backers (more on that soon, I promise).

There will be a FAQ and rolling updates page on our website dedicated to Myth and another for Myth: Dark Frontier. Everything moving forward will be timely. Thank you for your patience.
If Ulisses’ investing and supporting the Myth franchise is wise or foolish is really determined by you, the fans. Our gamble is that if we earn your respect, we may earn your business in the future for more Myth goodness.
