From All of Us at KingsIsle, Happy Holidays 2021!

Happy Holidays…from us to you! Our community means a lot to us, and we want to show how much! Just like last year’s post, please enjoy these special messages from various members of the KingsIsle team – all about how YOU have impacted us and our games.


“I’m so excited to be celebrating my 14th holiday with the KingsIsle community this year. We’re fortunate to have such a fantastic one! It’s been a wonderful year full of great updates, and we’re hard at work planning more amazing things for both Wizard101 and Pirate101 in 2022. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday, and I’ll see you in the Spiral (I need to finish Lemuria!).” – Leah “Professor Falmea” Ruben, Game Director



“Thank you to the greater Wizard101 community from the FX/Cinematics team! We hope you are enjoying your time exploring the magic of Lemuria and having as much fun as we did making it! We enjoy watching the livestreams of y’all playing and getting excited at all the spells and encounters we hoped you would. From our families to yours!! See you in game!” – Russell Hughes, Principal II Cinematic/FX Artist



“What a crazy year. 2020 brought a pandemic, while 2021 brought an unexpected acqusition! Despite everything, we’ve kept chugging along to bring you the amazing content that you love and deserve. Lemuria was a masterpiece and I’ve really enjoyed watching the community’s playthroughs and commentary. Working on KingsIsle’s first ever plushie this year was a blast, and I can’t wait for everyone who ordered one to receive theirs very soon! Thank you for all the support you’ve given us over the years, and I hope you have a very happy and healthy holiday season!” – Kayly Ginsberg, Associate Product Marketing Manager



“Another year working from home, and being part of a new company has not slowed us down. Sure there were some challenges, but overall I think we have done amazing. I have personally loved working with and talking to you all either on KI live, Twitter, or discord. I hope that you all enjoy the new things our product team has been working on in 2022, and don’t forget to keep sending in your suggestions!” – Joel White, Product Manager



“Another great year, community! I feel this year was our best in getting together and planning out events, seeing fansites write up amazing guides, collaborate on roundtables and other livestream opportunities, and so much more. We do put a lot of work into these efforts with you all, so I hope what we have produced in 2021 is what you want to see in 2022.

Above all else, I feel my team’s work has been a success when I see all of you having fun playing the game, and doing so with each other, not just in your own corners (which is totally cool whenever you want to wander off and play solo – I do it all the time!). I’ve put in many more hours this year simply hanging out with players in-game during our Beastmoon events, during community celebrations, and just to get to know all of you better. I hope you’ve gotten to know me a little bit better this year too.

Please feel free to reach out to me at any time to ask questions, suggest an idea for a fun event we can do in the coming year, or just to chat. It’s what I am here for. Here’s to what’s going to be a great 2022!” – Sparck, Senior Community Manager



“Hello Community! I’ve only been with KingsIsle since mid-July, but I’ve been involved with the Wizard and Pirate communities for so much longer. Being able to work on something that has an impact on so many people is insane and extremely rewarding. I love seeing all the posts about both games on social media, they never fail to get me hyped up and motivated! 2022 is about to get crazy. I know you’ve heard about the future of Pirate, and I hope you are all as excited as I am, though that’s just one of the many tricks we’re going to have up our sleeve! Thank you all for playing and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the year! ”
– Mesa Brown, CRM Marketing Associate



“Thanks for all the love and support of the artwork I’ve posted over the past year. I enjoy showing that aspect of our process, where you can see how those early ideas become in-game pieces. Looking forward to showing y’all what we do with the next world! P.S. I really enjoy seeing all the fanart!” – Adam Roush, Concept Artist



“I’ve really enjoyed bringing new and different kinds of player feedback driven bundles to the crowns shop. Look forward to more polls where we ask the community what you want! I hope we can do a lot more in the future to provide players with all the things you find fun about the game. I get to work with a great team of individuals that shares in this interest. Everyone is very collaborative, creative, and fun. KingsIsle is going to be doing a lot this next year and I’m excited to be a part of it. Thank you, our community for making our work a joy. Happy holidays from J.D. – Product Design P.S. Fallon Fireblade look forward to more decorating. 😉” – John Diers, Associate Product Designer



“It’s been a blast watching everyone’s response to the Lemuria story and all the speculation about what’s going to happen. We have big plans for next year and can’t wait to see what you all think. Happy holidays!” – Writing Team

All of our team members feel the same about their passion and drive to work with you to make our games better for your benefit. We are here for you and will always be listening for feedback and that next awesome idea that may make its way into the game.

For more from us, also be sure to visit our 12 Days of the Spiral page for additional gifts for your game characters.

Have a safe and happy holidays community!

    Yea you did a great job indeed. Let’s see if I can reach you from here. There’s no way we can share ideas with you, you should work on customer service. We all pay to play but only Americans can buy the new things. Gamestop asks for an American billing address. I wanna play less and less because of this, I’m feeling robbed. Please sell your things on your own site, I don’t feel as a part of your community anymore.
