Midipixel was originally founded by Werther Azevedo and Ygor Speranza, out of a desire to ride the indie games wave with their own quirky creations. After a couple of years of experiments and client work, they came up with Warlock's Tower. The retro puzzler received awards, App Store highlights, and has been released for PC, mobile and consoles.
Following Ygor's departure, the studio's focus shifted a bit to contemplate all of Werther's creative output which, in addition to indie games, also includes plenty of music and game audio and a keen interest on tools that enable people to be creative.
