KingsIsle Goes to Comicpalooza!

You may have read previously about our involvement in Texas game-related conventions, but in case you haven’t, here’s another reminder that KingsIsle loves to join in the fun and pitch-in on panels with useful information at our local conventions! In fact, we just participated a couple of days ago in Comicpalooza, which is a huge four-day International Comic Book Convention started in 2008, right here in Texas.

For our Wizard101 players, the name “Comicpalooza” might sound familiar since we run several sales events throughout the year like Pet-a-palooza, Mount-a-palooza, House-a-palooza, and more. I guess great minds must think alike! At the heart of Comicpalooza is a big emphasis on Comic Books with many for sale in the Dealer’s Room and get this, Stan Lee, the legendary comic book writer and Chairman of Marvel Comics, was even in attendance!

It’s more than just comics though — involvement in a big convention like Comicpalooza means you’ll also see fans dressed up as their favorite sci-fi, fantasy, comics and anime characters. Participants can also join in fun concerts and events; and if they’re a KingsIsle fan, attend our panels and discussions.

We talked a lot about several topics over four different panels which included family friendly board games (everything from Ticket to Ride to Munchin), Wizard101 and Pirate101 in general, voice acting, and how to get into the game industry. For those in attendance, we also passed out some Crowns codes and posters!

One of our avid KingsIsle fans, Deborah Kent, and her family attended Comicpalooza this year and even volunteered for the event. She later commented in an email to us:

“I loved watching all the interesting science fiction, fantasy, and gaming costumes and characters at Comicpalooza over the Memorial Day Weekend.  Comicpalooza is a great place to meet like-minded people who love to dress up as your favorite characters.  It was also wonderful to meet some of the staff behind Pirate101 and learn about how to become a creator of content for both Pirate101 and Wizard101.  After the panel, I got to talk a bit to the content designer–the person behind some of the stories in Pirate101, and to One-Eyed Jack.  He’s a rather slippery fellow, but still a very nice rabbit. Thank you for the crowns you gave out to everyone at Comicpalooza.”

Indeed, Comicpalooza was a great way to meet with our fans one-on-one and in a smaller setting while sharing insights and having a lot of fun. If you’re in the Texas area, we certainly hope you join us next time KingsIsle goes to a convention.

    I LIVE SOO CLOSE TO THERE I wish I could have been there, it would have been paradise it’d be fun to know some cool stuff about the game WE ALL LOVE wouldn’t it 😄 haha

  15. angel / May 28 2014 10:17 pm

    I also have some really cool ideas that would make a great addition to the game, like being able to skip past the animations during battles, (If the whole team agrees) it would be very convenient because some dungeons take ages to complete and the battle animations tae up most of the time doesn’t it?

    well that’s just some of the ideas 😄 some of my friends have whole discussions about what would be really cool

  16. strawberry0676 / May 28 2014 11:26 pm

    I just have to say one thing. You guys are awesome and that was cool you shared this. 😀

    Wizard101 has been my best game through out the year. Along my journey i see new updates, sales,giveaways. In my opinion,This year has been the best, you improve your games every year by a LOT. Keep up the awesome work. I have made many friends in this game and i guess kingsisle made it happen 😀 Kingsisle, your doing great
