Dear NANITS fans,
We would like to ask you for your help because our current situation is not easy at all. Our Nanits Comics project is currently at the end of its tether and we are looking for ways to save the project.
At the end of January this year we lost our main investors who decided not to support our project anymore and ended our funding. We had to stop all production and lay off the team, and we too had to find a new job very quickly.
Ever since we found out that we will not receive any additional money for our operation, we have contacted approximately 400 funds from the world and the Czech Republic. Those interested in our project, however, consider the early stage of the project and the associated number of users as a barrier. We do not think that we have had bad results. We managed to climb to 2500 readers per day! But like many other companies starting in the entertainment industry, we are dealing with the problem of "chickens and eggs". And we often hear: "Come to us when you have better numbers and then we will give you the money you ask for."
But once we get sufficient numbers, we will no longer need investors to help us get our business up and running.
Five years ago, we started our project with the idea that digital comics have a place on the market and that digital comics can look great. We imagined that comic books do not have to be only converted PDFs you open in your tablet or, on the other hand, a complex technical solution. So we created a new format that was most enjoyable to us and which honors the comic book form so much that it preserves the essence of what the comic book is about, but also adds elements that bring the reading experience into the 21st century.
We have added originally composed music that draws the reader into the story, and also allows them to read at their own pace. By using layers and parallaxes we created the illusion of space between panels. We gave the reader the ability to read comics in multiple languages and we even invented a way of converting classic paper comics to this new format.
At this point, we still have hundreds of loyal subscribers who support us, but for a truly functioning platform that will be able to publish at least one new comic book per week and will be attractive enough to both readers and new investors, we need thousands of subscribers at this price.
With this letter and this appeal, we would like to ask all those who root for NANITS and believe that this project has a place on the market, those who like what we do for comics, and also independent authors, to support us by visiting the NANITS app and purchasing a comic book there or by subscribing for a symbolic price of $0,99. The aim is to keep the platform alive and to gradually return to publishing of our original content, as well as of the comics of independent authors from all around the world.
Thank you very much for your love and support! ❤️
Robert, Michael, and Veronika
