Finnish mobile game developer Kukouri has released their massively multiplayer, social sandbox game Pixel Worlds for iOS and Android devices worldwide.
In Pixel Worlds, players create their own worlds with building blocks and other items ranging from furniture to clothing. Players also build platform levels for others to play, marketplaces for trading in-game items and info-worlds to help new players.
The game also overlaps onto social media in unique ways, with its own official YouTube and Twitch channels featuring weekly content created by Kukouri. In addition, the studio works with influencers in a range of media.

“We view the game itself as 50 per cent of the whole experience and the other 50 per cent are the different social aspects, both in-game and in different social media,” says Kukouri CEO Kim Soares. “Players were creating thousands of Instagram posts and YouTube videos about the game already during the limited soft launch.”
The most dedicated Pixel Worlds players spend up to 10 hours a day in the game, according to the studio. “People who spend that much time in-game are not just playing it. They are chatting with their friends, making new friends from all over the world and hanging out with each other. Pixel Worlds is social in the truest sense of the word,” Soares explains.
