Pixeljam games is Miles Tilmann (production + code), Rich Grillotti (art) and Mark Denardo (music). Inspired by games and art since his early childhood, Richard created Pixeljam.com as an abstract art site in 1998 to explore the possibilities of using pixels for more than just video game graphics.

Miles Tilmann started coding and designing games as a child, and eventually got to see a lifelong dream materialize when he and Richard founded the company. Together they navigate their own pixilated psyches, occasionally bringing back artifacts from their journeys in the form of games.
