Hi, I’m James Buckle. I founded Engage Pixel in the summer of 2014 to make the kind of games I enjoyed playing as a kid. I’m currently the only developer, but I hope to expand if my games have any success.
I’ve been making games since I was 8 years old, drawing out level story boards and designs, writing bits of code on my Spectrum. I moved onto an Amiga and, later, PC. I’ve always enjoyed drawing pixel art and making retro-style games.
I stated working in the games industry with EA/Bullfrog in ’99 before joining The Creative Assembly, where I was Lead Tester on the Total War series. After more than a decade of working on some fantastic PC and Console titles, I’m now going it alone as an indie developer.
Engage Pixel, fuelled by tea and dreams.
