Qixel Creative Tools

Qixel apps are creative tools for making stylised pixel art for retro game fans. Taking the 8bit style further, 'qixel' pixels are shaded to give that extra groove to your pixels. We have free and paid versions of Qixel and Qixel Animate for iOS and Android devices. Pixel art has resurfaced in recent years and games such as minecraft has brought a love of blocky simplicity to a new generation. Our apps can be used to tryout designs for your Minecraft skins on your mobile and tablet.
