Working at PixelCount

We here at PixelCount Castle are focused on making uniquely ambitious games, with Kynseed being our first title currently in Early Access.

Founded in 2016, we’re a spirited bunch who are working together to follow the indie dream. Together we’re a multi-disciplined team from all walks of game dev life. A few of us even got our start in the industry working on the Fable series at Lionhead Studios, the memories and experiences of which have had a huge impact on forming our studio culture and ambitions.

We are also a deeply community-centric developer that embraces unorthodox levels of transparency with our players. We pride ourselves on always making ourselves accessible to players and never giving them a company line. In fact, we tend to spend just about every workday in the lovely company of our community (most commonly on Discord).
