This is Chris, Managing Director of AfterGate Studios, posting a few updates of our overall progress so far.
As we embark on the exciting journey of launching our website, store, and community forum, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the hard work and dedication that has gone into this project.
At the heart of everything we do is a passion for connecting with our audience and creating an online space where people can come together to share ideas, ask questions, and find inspiration. That’s why we’ve been working tirelessly to bring our vision to life, and we’re thrilled to be getting closer to launch day.
One of the first steps in this process was defining our brand and messaging. We knew that in order to connect with our audience, we needed to have a clear and consistent message that would resonate with them. So, we spent time brainstorming and refining our core values, mission statement, and brand personality. We also did extensive research on our target audience to ensure that we were creating content and products that would appeal to their interests and needs.
The game was critical as we won’t be legitimate without having something to show for it. We wanted to share with the world, Gladiators: The Card Games. This has been in the works for four months and we are proud to showcase it as our first physical release.
Next, we started building our website and store. This was a complex process that involved designing the layout and user interface, creating product pages and descriptions, setting up payment and shipping options, and testing everything to make sure it was working seamlessly. It was a lot of work, but it was also incredibly rewarding to see everything come together and start to take shape.
Finally, we turned our attention to our community forum. We knew that this would be a critical component of our online presence, as it would provide a platform for our audience to connect with each other and with us. So, we spent time researching different forum software options, testing out different features, and building out the categories and topics that would be most relevant to our audience.
As we approach our launch date, we’re filled with excitement and anticipation. We can’t wait to share our website, store, and community forum with the world and start connecting with our audience in a meaningful way. We know that there will be challenges along the way, but we’re committed to working hard and staying true to our vision.
Thank you for joining us on this journey, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us!
