Pixel Play LLC is an indie studio dedicated to creating colorful, engaging, and fun games for everyone. Founded in 2020, Andy Gotcher was motivated to bring ‘byte’ size entertainment to the masses through original and adventurous arcade games. Andy is a seasoned Art Director/Game Designer who has helped create huge hits like Words with Friends, Chess with Friends, Matching with Friends, We Rule, Halo Wars, Terminator 3, Mission Impossible, Stuntman, and Riff the Robot. Truth be told, he was a founding teammate for a handful of these titles, even though he’s pretty chill about that. Andy worked in the mixed reality space for several years, too. 

Joined by his wife Valerie in 2022, she shines a lens on characters created by Andy that humanizes and connects them to the gaming community. Valerie is a speech therapist and experienced leader with a history of success in the human services industry. She finds deep satisfaction in connecting people to what they need and is passionate about bringing joy to Pixel Play fans. Valerie is responsible for establishing the nonprofit “BIND: Brain Injury Network of Dallas” and led the organization for 10 years.
