The Game Crafter 10 Year Anniversary Celebration!

The Game Crafter - 10 Year Anniversary Celebration! (We're giving away over $10,000 in TGC gift certificates!)

This month The Game Crafter turns 10 years old. For 10 years we’ve been building games and improving our services. For 10 years you’ve supported us and directed us along the way. We couldn’t have made 10 years without your love, your support, your promotion, your games, and you!

We’re gonna celebrate and we want to bring you along for the ride. We’re going to do this in 2 ways:

First, our very own JT Smith will be at Protospiel Michigan later this month, and he’s bringing cake! Come enjoy some birthday cake with JT at Protospiel. And while you’re at it, make him play your games!
