About the Company

Pixelberry is a studio in Mountain View, CA dedicated to creating games with heart. Many members of our team have worked together in the mobile space for over a decade. We're 5 for 5 in developing Top 100 games that blend addictive design with compelling narrative gameplay.

Through our Top 10 title High School Story, we've partnered with leading nonprofits to tackle teen issues like cyberbullying and eating disorders in our storylines, donating $350,000 to The Cybersmile Foundation in the process. Our current focus is Choices: Stories You Play, a digital storytelling platform that's landed us in the Top 25.

None of this would be possible without a tight-knit team of eager, passionate, and talented minds. At Pixelberry, we do what we love, and we love what we get to do. The entire company laughs through lunch together daily, lines up for movie field trips on opening day, and plays board games late into the night. And the first time you get a thank-you message from a troubled teen player or their mother telling you that your game literally saved their life, you’ll know that you haven’t just found a job. You’ve found a purpose.
