Thanks from KingsIsle

When we started KingsIsle in 2005, I saw a need for a family friendly game where players of all ages could connect online in a safe and fun environment.  After starting with a handful of employees, it’s a little surreal now to walk around the office eight years later and see three hundred people working on KingsIsle Games.  What an adventure this has been!

The creative people who work here brainstorming, designing, testing, and supporting our games have put in countless hours to bring you Wizard101, Pirate101, Grub Guardian and more.  Even so, they’re not the only reason for KingsIsle’s success.  If you were to ask me something that I’m thankful for as we enter this year’s holiday season – I would have to say you.  All of you.  I’m so thankful for all of you amazing players.

When you walk through the offices of KingsIsle, the love of our fans is apparent everywhere.  There is fan art decorating cubicle walls, stacks of fan mail piled up on desks, and even memories of hosting Ryan’s Make-a-Wish day.   Everywhere you look, the outpouring of affection from our players is evident.

Ryan’s Make-a-Wish Visit

What I want all you players to know is that we are so thankful for every picture, every letter, and every time you login to play one of our games.  We love hearing about how Wizard and Pirate helped you do better in school in math and reading, or how it helped you connect with your family more.  Those are the reasons why we make these games, but you are the reason we continue to do so.

So from myself and the rest of the KingsIsle family, thank you players!  I can’t wait to see what the next year brings us all.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

    I love Wizard101 and Pirate 101! I love the voices, sound, and creativity, you put into Kingsisle Games. Are you coming up with anymore new games? My brother and I love to play the games and wish you guys created a game about fashion designing and how it came to each of the worlds in the spiral. We also must say that we LOVE Subodai! We love that his critical strike is so powerful! We would also like to know, who plays the voice of Subodai? Or is his voice computer generated? You should know that we hope you guys at Kingsisle enjoy this comment!

    it has helped me socialize with others and have fun with my friends actually I have played it for 2 years.

  15. Ashten / Dec 8 2013 11:37 am

    thank you so much Kingsisle for making great games like wizard 101 and pirate 101. They are fun to play alone but with a family it is so much better laughing talking to each other just having fun. We never really had a game that we can all play and when you came out with wizard 101 and it had the family bundles and other things. We thought we might try it and we all loved it and so you may not now just how good your games co inside with families but they so, thanks again Kingsisle and have a merry Christmas.

  17. Morgan / Dec 8 2013 12:01 pm

    I love wizard 101! Where I’m from, everyone thinks of me as a freak, but on wizard 101 I can be myself and I have people that really want me to be their friend. It’s helped me realize not to care what other people think, but that if you like yourself, that’s all that matters.

  18. Kevin AKA Kdillard20 / Dec 8 2013 12:09 pm

    Wizard101 I can’t even tell you how happy i am you made this game. The first time i seen this game was when i was watching teen titans. When i saw that commercial i was like wow, I have to play that! When I started playing I felt like it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I got so excited, and i said to myself I’ve never played a game this fun before in my life. i love this game so much i play this game at night and, day. I play this game nonstop. I purchased a lot of things from you guys except the thing i couldn’t. I don’t know what gave you guys the idea to make this game, but I am so happy you guys made it. I love all the spells you made and i been playing this game for a while now and i’m just so excited about all the new spells that came out in November. When i seen them it totally blew my mind. To be honest with you guys i hope you keep this game going keep making new world, keep making new spells, keep making new people, and quest for us. I am really beyond grateful you guys made this game. Now it’s like the only thing I do in my spare time :D. By the way this is just an idea you guys should make school mounts. I think all the wizards will be happy about that, and you get the mounts at level 100 if you make it that high, which i hope you do. You have really made a difference in my life :).

    Thanks Wizard101, for everything

The games help me release some stress before or after a big exam and thanks to it I never get bored. The graphics is really good mad props to those who work on it and to those who thinks out the epic spells and awesome adventures witch i love about Wizard101. Pirate101 it is the face to face combat, the skills you can use and the cool companions. You guys know what you are doing and you deserve a happy happy Christmas.
