Pixelmatic’s mission is to spark the imaginations of people everywhere through games. We focus on creating engaging games that are truly social and encourage new connections to be made. Founded in 2011, Pixelmatic is a privately held corporation with staff in Shanghai and Vancouver.
Pixelmatic was established by game industry veterans hailing from Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard, and Relic. To deliver quality games for a worldwide market, we have been building a top tier development studio with exceptionally high standards in production process and technology. Our team’s experience ranges from creating highly rated multimillion dollar AAA franchises to multimillion user top ranked social games. Having established ourselves working on hardcore real-time strategy games played by professional gamers in competitions such as the World Cyber Games, all the way to casual social games with movie tie-in’s, we are now focused on creating immersive and social experiences for all platforms.
Most games aren’t really all that social – we aim to change that. Pixelmatic’s focus is on creating games that enhance existing relationships as well as encouraging new connections to be made. There’s so much room to innovate in how we structure social relationships in games, both in collaborative and competitive social game frameworks.
Currently we’re using Unity for all front-end development, but we’ve built a custom solution for our back-end requirements. The Excellion Engine is Pixelmatic’s proprietary server-side engine that enables social gameplay across multiple platforms/devices, as well as providing server management systems that allow us to easily scale a game based on real-time usage information. Some of the functionality includes: leaderboards, gifting, push notifications, data synchronization, authentication, and item redemption. With the Excellion Engine we can easily build complex online games that deliver fun and meaningful experiences for players.
