We're making video games a creative medium for kids, one block at a time.
Bloxels helps kids achieve their nearly universal desire to create video games (seriously, just ask any kid), rather than just playing them. By using the unique combination of hands-on toys and their love and understanding of classic video games, we've made video game creation accessible and fun for all ages.
To fully comprehend the simplicity and magic of Bloxels, you must first see it in action. Watch below to learn the basics of creating with Bloxels.
With Bloxels, you are the artist, the game designer, the storyteller, the programmer, the publisher and the player. You are the 13-bit Builder.
When you build a game with Bloxels you get to do it all. It starts by designing the hero of your game, one block at a time, on the 13x13 Bloxels gameboard and ultimately building an entire world around your hero.
It's your chance to dig deep inside and show off your personality, passion, creativity and skill. But don't worry, it's not too serious – in fact the sillier the better.
Once your game is ready, you'll be able to share what you create with the world. And if your players like your stuff, they can even use their hard earned coins to download your creations to use in their own games.
Now it's time to meet some of our favorite creators – we call them 13-bit Builders.
