As we wrap up Heaven Sent Gaming's 10th Anniversary, we're already hard at work, God willing, going into our next 10 years. The fourth quarter of 2016 had Heaven Sent Gaming being featured on the BBC and KRQE. While it was recorded in Q3, a Persian-language documentary for the British Broadcasting Corporation, about voters in the 2016 election along Route 66, since Mario is a Republican and Isabel is a Democrat, featured Heaven Sent Gaming's married cofounders in the segment about Albuquerque. And, all of Heaven Sent Gaming's current staff was featured on local CBS-affiliate KRQE, discussing our team's 10th Anniversary and future publications.

Earlier last year we ran a poll, by far, the most requested thing our fans wanted was a pin-up calendar of Heaven Sent Gaming's lady characters. We initially promised this as a pin-up calendar, we've instead decided to release these images as monthly cover images for the home page for our website; these art pieces are created by our artist Isabel Ruiz Lucero. Other popular picks from the poll were a more complete glossary of our publications, a complete Heaven Sent Gaming compilation book, more artwork, a talk show, and even a return to our let's plays video series'. We're hard at work on our glossary as well as the compilation book, we've already begun to a new talk show program called a Heaven Sent Gaming broadcast, and we're looking into rebooting our let's plays.

We've retained reader retention for the fourth quarter of 2016, and we've managed to support our audience size. The video game we are developing is still on track to release in 2017, and we are continuing to develop the game for mobile devices and Nintendo platforms. Our Japanese language comic サワデ, will be launching hopefully this quarter. This comic is a relaunch of Thad's World Destruction, told from the perspective of the Japanese immigrant character Art.

We're grateful to God for our fans, and the wellspring of ideas that Heaven Sent Gaming has been able to tap into. We love being able to talk with the press about our entertainment team, our members, and our creations. But we would like to clear up a few misconceptions, we're indeed a Christian arts/entertainment publication but we are not a "faith-based" or "right-wing" publication, our team's creations are not here to evangelize or to push agendas; editor-in-chief Jason Waggoner is an Independent voter and atheist, our President/Artist Isabel Ruiz Lucero is a Democrat and Seventh-Day Adventist, and CEO/Designer Mario J. Lucero is a Republican and a nondenominational Christian raised Catholic. Our fictional universe is very much grounded in Christian and Jesus-centered themes, as our founders and primary creators Mario and Isabel are heartfelt followers of Jesus Christ. This symbolism, messaging, imagery, and overall feeling in the Heaven Sent Gaming universe is very much authentically Abrahamic and Judeo-Christian, and is similar to the use of Thor and Norse mythology in Marvel. Another source of inspiration for us is New Mexico and Japan related imagery, because these places are also inspiration places for our work.

Last year we were forced to cut our team's size back substantially, due in part to recent private revelations revolving around the Wikipedia situation in 2014, the situation caused them chagrin after they revealed the information, we harbor no hard feelings and would welcome them back into the team with no questions asked. Thirst, a collaborative pen-and-paper RP game with former Our Own Little Coup member, Devin Torkavian, is on hiatus due to her having apprehensions at Mario's support of Donald Trump during the 2016 election. We support each of their rights to freedom of speech, and everyone at Heaven Sent Gaming hopes that Devin will return to work on the project. But, until then, Thirst is on Hiatus and another tabletop title will be developed by Mario J. Lucero and Jason Waggoner.

Heaven Sent Gaming is still looking into getting sponsors, but we will not be sacrificing our team's artistic freedom to do so. If you or your business would like to sponsor us, or if you have suggestions on companies you'd like us to work with, feel free contact us at contact@heavensentgaming.com or 1(505)336-0474. Thank you and God bless.

As we continue to celebrate Heaven Sent Gaming's 10th Anniversary, we look forward to the future. Our third quarter saw us focusing on mostly behind-the-scenes work; our first commercially available video game in under development (a side-scrolling platformer), Isabel began using her Twitter account to practice her Japanese, Mario became active in politics (while he is a registered Republican voting for Trump, Isabel is an undecided registered Democrat, and the people we have worked with have a wide-range of views and opinions, so HSG itself does not support/endorse any political party or candidate), and we began work on a book set to release next year chronicling our team's inception, history, and an anthology of released works.

We've increased reader retention for the third quarter of 2016 by a large margin, over last quarter, and we've managed to support our audience size. At the behest of our Japanese fans and due to our comics' rising popularity in The Land of the Rising Sun, especially Reverie and Thad's World Destruction: Before Destruction, we will be creating a Japanese-language comic produced for a Japanese audience. This is the reason our artist Isabel has been practicing her Japanese. This comic is not planned to have an English-language release at this time. Another interesting note, this marks the first time that a Japanese language manga is being produced within the United States. As such, we are taking its release very seriously, thank you for your patience.

The video game we are developing will release in 2017, we are developing the game for mobile devices and Nintendo platforms.

We've received several press opportunities, either sought by us or our fans. While we are grateful for the hard-work and the exposure, that these publications have given us. We will be closing our "open-season" at getting press coverage by the end of December, so if any other publications would like to work with us, please contact us by then. We had an appearance on BBC Persian, and received requests from all-over-the-place, including local news stations such as KRQE (which we will respond to shortly).

Heaven Sent Gaming has always been about promoting our artistic efforts, and as such we have been more interested in art above profits, we've made very little-to-no money off our endeavors. That will change going forward, as we will now actively start looking for sponsors. If you or your business would like to sponsor us, or if you have suggestions on companies you'd like us to work with, feel free contact us. Thank you and God bless.

During 2016, Heaven Sent Gaming began celebrating its 10th anniversary. During Q2 of which, HSG began distributing Reverie: The First 5 Years eBook on Amazon Kindle, as well as the new a Heaven Sent Gaming broadcast via audio streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. Reverie's debut at #151,229 on the Kindle Store, in the final weeks of the quarter June 15, and its peak at #66,914 on June 30 has given us the idea to potentially release compilation eBooks from our plethora of other series.

We've increased traffic and increased reader retention for the second quarter of 2016 by 33%, over last quarter. We look forward to bringing back our novels this quarter, and since we've been receiving chatter on Twitter from our Japanese fans we will bringing more attention to our manga series Thad's World Destruction: Before Destruction.

Since the launch of our team in 2006 we have typically avoided press opportunities. But, due to outcries from the fans we may look into it again. We will attempt to look for opportunities in this area as well, but it is outside of our control. We're extremely grateful for our fans, thank you and God bless.

We were originally founded in 2006, as a part of a team of game designers and artists, and became part of the preponderant Our Own Little Coup during its short-lived 2007 existence. Isabel and I had formed our team (HSG), prior to going to college, as a partnership for our Christ-centered creative endeavors; since then, we've gotten married, and Heaven Sent Gaming has only continued to become much more voluminous, encompassing comics, games, music, novels, video, and web entertainment.

The team has regained a couple of our former Our Own Little Coup team members, Jason Waggoner in 2012 and D. H. Torkavian in 2015, and we've added our first new team member since Ehryel's departure in 2013. Our new member is named Clint Costello, and he will be the primary editor of aywv going forward

Heaven Sent Gaming's 10th Anniversary

If you follow us on Twitter, than you're already aware that 2016 is Heaven Sent Gaming's 10th year in operation. Along the way we've met numerous friends, and worked with countless talented people. It's rare for any crew to mark a decade of continuous action. God willing, we're not slowing down any time soon. Our team is now consists of three persons; cofounders Mario and Isabel, as well as editor Jason. The cofounders have been with the team since 2006, and Jason has been an on-and-off member since 2007.

In fact, this year, we've got a few fun things planned to mark this special occasion. If you were unaware we're running a strawpoll, check it out over on strawpoll.me. This poll will be running until the end of the month. Come next month, the results will be announced, and perhaps we'll run another strawpoll to iron out the details.

Reverie: The First 5 Years

We're also planning on releasing our previous content on new avenues, we were working with Comixology to bring Reverie 2010 Collection to their service. Instead, we'll be bringing the currently unreleased, Reverie: The First 5 Years to the service. If it does well enough, we'll add more of our comics to the service.

Plans to regrow our group's numbers fell through within the last couple years, due to various reasons. These efforts mostly fell through for silly reasons, and as always, we look forward to working with any of our past members. Once a Heaven Sent Gaming team member, always a Heaven Sent Gaming team member. In fact, we're going to be reaching out to all of our classic compatriots to again join our side to make this year something special.

Founded in 2006, and we're not slowing down any time soon. Thank you so much for sticking around all this time and, even if you're just joining us, we look forward to continuing to bring you more God bless.
