What is Pixel Press?
Remember drawing video games as a kid, back when you could only dream of those games coming to life? We do too, which is why we’re building the first mobile platform that allows you (and your kids) to create your own games, just by drawing them.
Unlike other platforms that provide little framework and often require code or complex processes, Pixel Press focuses on letting the player design and customize the challenge of the game, around an established framework.
Can Parents & Kids of all ages enjoy Pixel Press together?
Absolutely. Parents (especially those of you who drew video games as kids!) of younger children (6-8) will enjoy helping them learn and play Pixel Press and will appreciate the logic and motor skills they will develop in the process. Older kids (9-12) will enjoy creating levels and sharing them with parents & friends, and finally big kids (this includes everyone) will enjoy the nostalgia of drawing game ideas around the the game genre’s of their childhood.
Can I draw on paper & on the device?
Yes, you can do both! As much as we love to draw on paper, we also love being able to draw on the go! Everyone works differently. With Pixel Press you can start from paper and then continue your drawing on the device, or you can start from a blank sketch sheet on the device – all using our special “Draw-in-App” tool that matches the process of drawing on paper, just digitally.
What kind of games can I create and where can others play them?
The Pixel Press Game Builder platform focuses on established games genres and enables user to create their own level designs – we are currently focused on “run-and-jump” platformer style games (i.e. Super Mario Brothers ) and will support additional game genres in the future. All games created on the platform can be played in the Pixel Press Arcade.
Is Pixel Press for creators only?
No, Pixel Press was created with gamers and players in mind too. Even if you don’t yet want to create, you can play the games that others created in the Arcade.
What is Pixel Press Floors & how do I get it?
Pixel Press Floors is our the first game developed by Pixel Press Technology, LLC, and is built around the “run-and-jump” platformer genre. Pixel Press Floors will be available in the Apple App Store. Click here for the latest on availability.
What makes Pixel Press different than other game creation platforms?
Pixel Press is different than most game creator tools because we focus directly on a specific game genre and provide simple tools for creating & sharing games in those environments. Our first release Pixel Press Floors, let’s creators build run-and-jump platformer games, and will be updated over time to add new tools within that genre.
Pixel Press will release additional titles in the future that are built around additional genres.
