KingsIsle’s New Blog… and a Confession
I’m thrilled to announce the official launch of KingsIsle’s new blog. We truly have such a great community with phenomenal fan sites, players and (if you will allow me to gush just a little) excellent community managers. This blog gives us another means to share our passion with you as well as dive into a broader range of topics.
What can you expect of our blog? For one it’s another fun, playful environment that lets a little more of our creativity shine through outside of our games. Keep an eye out for insights into the gaming industry and perhaps a little guidance to those who aspire to enter it with us. We also have some wonderful “Guest Bloggers” lined up, and we certainly want to hear from you on topics you would like us to further explore. Perhaps most importantly, we want to give you a more intimate view of what we do here at KingsIsle and exactly why we are so passionate about what we do.
Okay, you know about the goals of the new blog… so what is my confession? It is simply this – I love what I do. No, really! I believe it is one of the things that set us apart as a company, because I’m convinced this feeling runs across every employee here at KingsIsle.
Sure, some days and activities are still “work” but never once have I lost my appreciation for how lucky I am to do what I do and to be a part of the KingsIsle community. Bluntly stated, I am proud of what we all do here. I’m even more proud to be a part of this this great community of Wizards and Pirates and more that you have created with us.
As I sit writing this first blog entry I actually have tears streaming down my face. Just five minutes before I started writing this post I received a call from the Make-A-Wish foundation. There is a 10-year old boy whose wish is to come visit our studio because he is such a fan of Pirate101. How amazing to be a part of something that has such a positive impact. Please accept my sincere gratitude for partnering with us to make something truly great. Thank you for making our jobs so rewarding!
