Magic Pixel Games was founded by six members of the Boom Blox team after "routine layoffs" from Electronic Arts' Los Angeles studio in March 2010. The company announced its formation on June 2, 2011 after adding other industry veterans from THQ and Activision to its staff.
Magic Pixel's first mobile title, Stick to It, was a character-based physics-puzzler released in 2012 for iOS. In 2014, Magic Pixel partnered with Tapzen and released This Means WAR! for iOS, with the Android version coming out in Q3 of 2014. Also coming out in 2014 is Outcast Odyssey, published by Bandai Namco Games.
