We’ve got some exciting news to share with you: Jagex has once again been shortlisted for the prestigious UK Developer of the Year Golden Joystick Award. This is the same category that we won last year, thanks to all of your support.
We fondly remember last year, when so many of you voted for us following our newspost that you actually managed to crash the Golden Joystick web servers, not just once or twice, but four times! Despite their servers repeatedly falling over under the massive strain, they still managed to register in excess of 1.3 million player votes, which earned them a Guinness World Record for the most player votes ever received (thanks to all of you, of course)!
The Golden Joystick Awards are the only games industry awards chosen entirely by players, which is naturally what matters most to us, and we are really honoured by and thankful for your continued support.
If you would like to support Jagex in this year’s Golden Joystick Awards, simply go to this voting page on the Golden Joystick website - you’ll find Jagex in the 'UK Developer of the Year' category. We’ve been assured that the servers have been upgraded, so that there is no way our community will be able to crash their website this time round; however, we guess that remains to be seen...
We’ve certainly had a great deal of fun working on our games this year and hope that you have enjoyed all the new events and updates that we’ve released so far. We have tons more planned for the rest of the year and can’t wait until we can share it with you all.
Thanks again and all the best,
Andrew & Mark Gerhard
