Ariel / ProphetOPossum

A huge fan of the fantasy genre, I also love complex universes filled with depth and stories. Besides falling down research rabbit holes, I like video games, animation and comic books of all styles, and reading way too much in one sitting.


Caterina Martin

Hello! My name is Cat and I am currently a full-time student in college exploring potential career paths. As this industry is something I strive to make a career in, Pixelles is a great opportunity to express my creativity as well as my curiosity as I am very excited to learn what it actually takes to create a game. Through this experience I hope to explore the different paths in game creation and to find something that I’d truly like to pursue in the future.


Emma Khoury

I’m a Montreal-based artist, inspired by the beauty of nature and everything mystical. My creative pursuits span illustration, animation, 3D modeling, and filmmaking, all fueled by my love for storytelling. My goal is to craft heartfelt games that challenge common tropes, offering comfort to those who resonate with my work.


Ines Souquett

Hello! I’m Ines, from Venezuela. I love video games and sleeping. My favorite games are those that take you on a fantastic journey, in a new world, with unforgettable and endearing characters. It’s my dream to craft such games one day as well! My background is in Psychology and International Relations, with a focus on Social Studies. My goal is to find a role as a Narrative Designer or Game Designer in the future. Nice to meet you all, can’t wait to make some games together!


Jess Souza

Hi, I’m Jess! I’m a Sr. PMM from Brazil, currently providing services for Unity in Montreal. I’m passionate about entertainment and gaming, so I’m thrilled to have found Pixelles. In my spare time, I play video games, teach tricks to my cat, enjoy fantasy shows with my family, and—since finding Pixelles—have started creating games! I love chatting and sharing insights. Let’s connect ;D


Klarissa Armada

I am passionate about the Arts, especially Music, and spend most of my time either practicing piano, violin, or rollerblading (+ bothering my Cat who rules my world). And yes, I consider rhythm games a form of practice :3


Leah Churchill

Hello! I’m a writer and filmmaker originally from LA. I just recently moved to Montréal after spending over a decade living in Shanghai, China. I have some experience writing for games, but I’ve been really eager to make my own game! My hope is to create something that has a handmade, personal feeling that I admire so much in the games I love.


Mariah Mullally

Mariah is currently in her early career as a marketing professional. She graduated in 2022 with a Bachelors of Commerce from Toronto Metropolitan University. She is excited to participate in the Pixels Game Incubator to develop her creative work portfolio.

Nelly Harvey

Hello! My name’s Nelly and I’ve always been passionate about visual arts and video games, game design and storytelling are fascinating to me. I’ve always worked in tech and spent my personal time working on creative projects. I hope that I’ll finally be able to bring to life my game project through these workshops!


Tabitha Durbin

I am a small but mighty 3D artist hailing from the state of Georgia with big dreams for Montréal. I’ve been making art and playing games for a while now, and I think it’s about time I finally learn how all those games are put together. I have great interest in the ways art can impact our lives and communities, and I hope to make things someday that can bring about even small change for the better.


♥ Our Gracious Partners!

We would like to thank KO_OP and Lucid Tales to be our program partner this year! Without their help, this program wouldn’t be as amazing! We’re thrilled to count them as allies who believe in the importance of diversity in video game development!
