PixelTail Games LLC is a small independent video game company based in Redmond, WA. We are the creators of Tower Unite, GMod Tower, and Elevator: Source.
HistoryHow it started
Before PixelTail Games was founded, the original team created GMod Tower, a mod for the Source engine game Garry’s Mod. From 2009 to 2015, after positive community reception and progress in development on GMod Tower, the team blossomed with talent from around the globe and developed into the PixelTail Games of today. The company was founded in 2015, and, with the aid of generous funding from our community, began Tower Unite, an ambitious project which has been in development and available on Early Access on Steam since then.What Drives Us
Our goals for game development are simple but fueled by passion. We strive to create games that enable social experiences and encompass a wide variety of genres. Whether they be trivia competitions, top-down shooters, ball-dropper arcade games, typing competitions, or virtual mini-golf, we want to create games that offer access to all sorts of fun.
We also pride ourselves on transparent communication with our community. That is why we share our development process through blogs and social media. Our work is greatly aided by interactions with our community and the extensive feedback we receive.Tower Unite (2015 - now)
Our debut title and largest project to date, Tower Unite is an MMO party game with a central Plaza and Tower that afford access to various game worlds, mini-games, and fun locations. Along with the games found in the Plaza and Game Worlds, Tower Unite has the Condo system: a feature that allows players to create and customize their own living space with items and prizes they earn from playing games. Thus, even when the games are over, the fun can continue in a different way.
Tower Unite is currently in active development.
