Below we've listed all of this year's Summergen pieces with their summaries, but there's one piece of crucial information still left off.Can you guess any of the makers?
If you've got an inkling--or even if you just wanna guess wildly and randomly, for the fun of it--post your guess in the comments to this post! In a week or so we'll do creator reveals, and you can see how close you came!
In the meantime, please enjoy/re-enjoy this summer's pieces, or discover the gems you might have missed. Thank you all for playing!!
