Welcome to Pixel Press Floors
Have you always wanted to create your own video game but never knew where to start?
Pixel Press Floors offers a revolutionary and simple way to create & play games – create on paper with “Draw-on-Paper” and take a picture of it, create directly on the screen just like you would on paper with “Draw-in-App”, and then share & play games created by you and the entire community in the “Arcade”.
Device Support: Creating directly from paper with “Draw-on-Paper” and “Draw-in-App” is now supported on all iPad’s 2+. Playing the “Arcade” is available on all iPads and iPhone 4s+ and iPod 5th Gen+.
Bring your video game ideas to life, simply by drawing!
Pixel Press Floors is changing the way we experience mobile games by letting anyone be the creator, publisher and player of their own video game. With our creator platform, you can literally draw your own video game – no coding required.
By recognizing the shapes (“glyphs”) you draw on paper or in the app using our “Draw-in-App” tools, we instantly turn your level blueprint into a game that can be tested, designed, played – and most importantly, published to the “Arcade” where others can enjoy your level and you can track how many times it’s played.
Is this a good fit for parents & teachers?
Parents and teachers are already discovering amazing way to use our software to teach kids STEM focused learning principles – such as prototyping, design thinking, teamwork & collaboration, and user empathy.

How it Works
What do I need to create?
> Pixel Press Floors app – You’ll need an iPad to “Create-from-Paper” and play – and you can create directly in the app just like you would on paper using touch or a stylus with our “Draw-In-App” tools.
> Paper, Pencil & our Sketch Guide (optional) – Print the free Sketch Guide at home (visit projectpixelpress.com to download the PDF) and take a picture of what you create with your iPad’s camera.
How do I create?
The glyphs you draw (for example an “x” is a spike and a “+” is a coin) are transformed into gameplay objects. From there you can apply a design to the element, test it, and play it. It’s that simple, and once you learn the glyphs, you’ll be creating like a pro.
Full instructions on how to create can be found in our Sketch Guide and How-to Videos at projectpixelpress.com.
