Pyxld

is creating games to make the world a better place

Hi, I'm Kris Gano. Nice to meet you.

I'm the founder of an Austin-based company called Pyxld. A few years ago I was inspired to create a video game with kids in a children’s hospital, and then donate the revenue from the game back to the hospital. Pyxld is that idea, plus a massive amount of obsessive tech and business development. But really what it boils down to is this: I turn marker drawings into video game assets within seconds. Kids love it :)

My current focus is on creating a video series based around making games with people. We'll capture real moments of us humans connecting over some of the most fundamental parts of being alive: creativity, fun, and adventure. In each episode we'll develop an original mini-game, with themes in both tying into a cause we partner with. Then, we'll use the games to raise money for these causes!

By becoming one of our patrons you'll get... well... let me just be brutally honest here. I'm just one guy, and this is the hardest thing I've ever done. Much harder, even, than the past six years of working full time developing and running my own small MMO. I'm putting so much time into developing the business that right now I don't have a lot of time to do all of the cool exclusive Patreon stuff you might be accustomed to. One day soon we'll be there, but in order to do that I need to bring some more people on board to help out. To do that, I need to be able to pay them...

Still, I want to do something for the people who support Pyxld and help get us off the ground, so I have small things in place for the different tier types. Just know, the rewards will get better soon!

By supporting Pyxld on Patreon you're helping us twofold. The money itself is an enormous gift. It would be life changing for me to get to a place where I can work on the business full time without having to feel guilty that I'm taking time away from other, less risky endeavors. The second way it helps is by demonstrating traction! I'm planning to pitch Pyxld to a well known production company here soon, and the more traction I can show the better. With that partnership secured, Pyxld will be well on its way to helping people all over the world in the most fun way I can possibly think of.

Thank you so much for reading this, you make dreams like this possible!
