As 2022 kicks off, we are redoubling our efforts to bring board games into the modern (read: digital) era. We love (physical) board games as much as you, but we also see untapped potential in the digital space as apps are getting better and better. Our goal is to partner with developers to strive toward improving accessibility, ease of use and selection via one subscription-based entry point.
It starts with a rebrand.
We loved our old name, Lowkey Gaming, but as we look to build our brand we’ve settled on a new name: Loodo (avid gamers may recognize the root). It’s a small change in the scheme of things, but one that we’re excited about. You can now find us at https://www.loodo.gg and @playloodo on the major social networks.
With the change in name comes the intent to move into high gear.
Since putting up the original website we have been reaching out to as many people as we can to understand how to make our vision come to life and, well, it’s time. We’re excited to pivot to finally start turning the engine on our subscriptions product! We’ve alluded that this is coming on our website and such – over the past few months we have taken the time to build out our backend services needed to make this happen and we’re ready to start the kickoff process.
So - how does this subscription thing work?
Feel free to check out the “official” press release here (the internet says you’re supposed to do these things. Are we doing it right?). Each month, members will be able to visit loodo.gg to view their credit balance (1 credit per month for paying members), games they’ve previously received, and the full list of titles to choose from each month as part of Loodo’s subscription service. Getting your new digital board game is as simple as selecting which one you want on the site, confirming it, and then opening a link sent to your device. Games are yours to keep on your mobile device.
We’re keeping some of the specifics under wraps for now, but if you poke around the website you’ll get an idea for the kinds of apps that will be available! We’re expecting to have hundreds of options available to choose from at launch and discounts of up to 50% off list price. For now, we are having conversations with developers and ironing out some of the details. Expect the launch soon and join our waitlist to be notified when we officially open our doors!
What can I do while I wait?
It’s an exciting time for us. We’re thrilled to start getting things going! We hope to keep the “waiting period” short — but in the meantime, we need your help. The best way we can get this thing off the ground is by spreading the word.
We’ll continue to work on providing more content like we’ve done so far (i.e. ratings, reviews, and some new plans we think you’ll love) in our quest to be a great single source of information about all things mobile board gaming. But we’re excited to see where this new chapter takes us!
Thanks for letting us be part of your community. Looking forward to 2022!
-Andrew and Sean, Loodo Co-Founders
