All the staff at Gamasutra and its sister sites would like to wish our readership a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year -- from the leading websites to discuss both the art and business of games.
For the 2009 holiday season, Gamasutra will be running on a reduced schedule, with no major updates on Christmas Day or New Year's Day, but still bringing you any breaking news, as well as bonus end of year in-depth features and analysis. through this and next week.
In particular, we will be concluding the game developer Xmas card round-ups
, and the site will be revealing the results of our reader 'Game Of The Decade' poll
across multiple features, crowning the best video game of the last 10 years.
In addition, our sister Gamasutra Network websites will be updating -- albeit on a somewhat reduced schedule -- throughout the holiday season, including the following sites:
(discussing the business of social gaming and online worlds)
- IndieGames.com: The Weblog
(for independent game creators)
(for digital downloaded console games)
(for iPhone and iPod touch gaming information)
- Game Set Watch
(the Network's alt.game weblog)
- Games On Deck
(serving mobile game developers)
The management of Gamasutra would like to thank all of our readers, advertisers and job posters/responders for their patronage throughout the year.
