KingsIsle Holiday Charity Mounts

The 12 Days of the Spiral have once again come to Wizard101 and Pirate101.  As with previous years, this festive event kicks off with our charity mount the Noelephant.  While I actually loved the Fa La La Lama from last year, I still vividly remember one of our designers coming up with the idea of the Noelephant.  I actually laughed/snorted out loud at the comedic idea of an elephant dressed up in Christmas garb and the wonderful play on words.  Something that I really love about our creations at KingsIsle is the humor and the light heartedness of their personalities.  But there is a serious side to this event, just as our characters in game take themselves very seriously.  At the end of this year’s charity drive you, our players, will have helped raise almost $400,000 for charities targeted at improving the lives of children.  Our hats are off to all of you for your generosity in helping improve the lives of so many that these charities touch!

Over the last few years we have been thrilled to work with two great charities here in central Texas.  The Children’s Medical Center at Legacy in Plano is an award winning facility that provides excellent care to children in the greater Dallas area.  The Austin Children’s Shelter provides critical resources and services to children, youth and families recovering from abuse and neglect.  We are thrilled to continue to support these two organizations through your generosity.

This year we expanded the charities in the program to include Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas.  All of us at KingsIsle were extremely touched when Ryan and his family came to visit.  We saw firsthand what kind of impact Make-A-Wish has on families and wanted to expand our support beyond visits.  As a complete coincidence, we are actually hosting another child and his family today.  We received this request less than two weeks ago and it seems fitting that the schedule worked out so that they are here on the kickoff of the Noelephant charity event.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season as we head into 2014.  Happy holidays from everyone here at KingsIsle!

Now, back to the fun of showing a very enthusiastic child and his family the inner workings of the Wizard101 world…

    wizard101 is awesome.i love wizard101 cause it has brought my family together

    Wizard101 is one of the best multiplayer games that I have played where there are all ages playing and helping each other in the game. we have two computers and its fun to watch my two kids play together and work together on the game. They even use their imagination in the back yard of being wizards. What I’m trying to say is that it helps with kids people skills and cooperation.

    Thanks for having hitting one out of the park with wizard101 and pirates101

  13. Suellen / Dec 8 2013 10:50 pm

    I love wizard 101 when I first heard about it on TV. I just love the freedom it gives me to just be me. Then when pirate 101 came out and I was told that I didn’t need a new account I jumped on and fell in love all over again. Thank you so much for making these game so exciting to play.

I appreciate KI work, when i started this game i felt, is this what i like and soon when i get to understand this game i really liked it, also i liked it more where you can celebrate stuff like christmas, valentines day, halloween and much much more.

    wizard101 is a very fun it helps bring a family closer together thats why i thank you guys for making this very cool game

  20. Jess Brooke / Dec 9 2013 5:29 am

    Wizard101 has brought my family closer together since we’ve been helping each other out with quests and pets etc. It’s also helped us become friends with people from all over the world which has given us an insight of what’s out there culture-wise. Not many online games will have friendly players like Wizard101, if not none that I know of. Its really been lovely to meet so many nice people from all over the world come together and not judge you. 🙂 That’s what I call a family orientated and friendly game.

    I love wizard 101 because it has brought my friends and I a little bit closer. I have also had a blast completing quests, defeating bosses, and finding all sorts of odds and ins of things. I also love how it is not blood coming out of the dead enemies chest. I love how it is a game with a story line so that one knows what one is fighting for. It is by far the best game on my computer.

  22. Skywardwolf413 (@Skywardwolf413) / Dec 9 2013 7:10 am

    Wizard101 has provided me with entertainment ever since I found the game back in 2009. This is really fun and I’m glad to be playing again.

    • lightwolfs4589T / Dec 10 2013 12:28 am

      what wizard101 and pirate 101 mean to me is that ever one is equl and no one left out of the game and I like all the gifts we get and its so cool to have friends

  23. tastro / Dec 9 2013 7:22 am

    wizard101 is awesome 🙂

  25. GossipSpectra / Dec 9 2013 7:59 am

    Wizard101 is a magical game for me.I have made lots of friends in w101, and i really enjoy playing it.I really admire it because of its safety, cause its a MMORPG game (that it doesnt let you upload photos,talk about yourself with open chat, it doesn’t let you say some bad words etc.).Pirate101 its also a good game, but its not as cool as Wizard101 (in my opinion), it has the same rules with w101, it has battles with bosses and minions like w101 but i think its not as magical(that’s my opinion, some people think the opposite).
    I like both of games ’cause they have adventurous missions, we can make friends safely, and because they’re 3D !!!!

    This game is only one word, EPIC! Best. game. ever.

  27. monsterhigh1909 / Dec 9 2013 8:56 am

    I like Wizard 101 because, it is entertaining to me. I love the fact that you get to travel around the spiral and receive amazing quests! Also, the same reason goes for Pirate 101. Battling has to be my FAVORITE thing to do in both Wizard 101 and Pirate 101. Those are my reasons.

  28. Angelina Koppel / Dec 9 2013 9:02 am

    Wizard 101 is awesome!!!

  29. Angelina Koppel / Dec 9 2013 9:08 am

    Wizard101 and Pirate 101is entertaining. I love the fact that you can travel around the spiral and receive amazing quests! Battling has to be my FAVORITE part in both of them. You can reach new levels just from battling! Those are my reasons.

  30. mathew / Dec 9 2013 9:14 am

    Pirate101 is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! And those charity mounts were a great idea to help those in need. They are so cute and it was thoughtful of you to have these to help those in need. Keep up the graceful work.

  47. Thomas / Dec 10 2013 8:43 am

    Wizard101 is the bestest game ever. (Yes, it deserves the est.)

  48. webster / Dec 10 2013 9:41 am

    wizzard101 is the best game in the world

  49. John Skull Horn / Dec 10 2013 4:39 pm

    I think that this is the best game ever i enjoy it so much but it would be nice if you could keep the monsters you defeat as a pet.And still have the same attacks but the critical full with a one hit one kill.Then they reappear as a monster again. And that mounts were three person and the non permanent ones were permanent if you guys you do that then pls do ty. 🙂

    During this past year I have learned new ways to strategize and have fun. For example, in life and in this game rather than waiting for things to happen I go for it. Over the course of this past year this game has brought my little brother and I closer together; whether it’s working together to defeat the enemy or working together on a lazy Saturday. I enjoy playing one on one with my friends; I even made a few new ones. Throughout this year I remember the excitement in our house when we would defeat a dungeon. This game has expanded my vocabulary and inspired me to ask many questions about programming and graphics. This game means a lot to me and my family and I have loved this game with its mount, pets, companions, and all of its new additions. In conclusion this game has changed my life forever and this game has made my year better.
