Welcome to Subpixel! Instead of outlining our values or company vision, we thought we’d list some of our favorite game experiences. Down the line, we hope someone out there includes a Subpixel game on their list.
As of early 2020, we’re prototyping and setting the foundation for the studio. We’re looking for collaborators (particularly artists, programmers, and testers), so if you’re interested please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Early inspirations: Super Mario Bros 3, Super Metroid, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Doom, Duke Nukem, Mario 64
Favorite game: Éric Chahi’s Another World. Unbelievable example of what one talented person can achieve in game development.
Most played: Counter-Strike. I played competitively on teams for too many years. But there is no game that gives you a bigger adrenaline rush when you when a match.

Most played: Final Fantasy VIII: I still leaf through my dog-eared strategy guide regularly.
Gems: Valkyria Chronicles, Jedi Academy, Vanquish, Dead Space 1 & 2, Killzone 2 & 3, Alien: Isolation, Titanfall 2, Return of the Obra Dinn
