Bloxels

Maker - Daniel Wiseman

Bloxels
Small Business Support

Maker Story

Early Developers

Tell a kid they can create their own video game and be prepared to get out of the way as they get to work. Bloxels gives them control of the game while combining physical play with screen time.

It all begins on an actual game board. Each color-coded block represents a different function in the game—an environment, action, or character—while the board represents a room. Kids create the scene and then take a picture with the app. Based on the colors and placement, the app turns the image into a game.

Founders Robin Rath and Daniel Wiseman both grew up on video games, and created Bloxels to combine their favorite aspects of digital play. Daniel liked to create his own characters and explore artwork. While Robin was interested in playing and adding new levels.

Kids can start playing with their games as soon as they are done building. Or they can try out games built by other kids. They will relish being in control of their own designs, while their parents can appreciate a healthier mix of real and virtual playtime.
