What happened to Bulkypix?

I can't be the only person who thinks it's absolutely painful to see Bulkypix publishing Ketchapp-like mini games. While they're probably super successful on the App Store, it really sucks since Bulkypix could once have been considered "defenders of the faith", releasing fully premium experiences when everyone else was opting to go Free to Play.

Oh well, these are the times man. *clutches onto RCT3*

Agreed. They are even following the same release pattern now, i.e one game per week. Such a sad downfall from the level of quality that Bulkypix was once associated with.

Follow me on Twitter for all the latest iOS news. And sometimes more.

The last bulkypix games I played were T.E.C. 3001 (deserved way more attention than it got)
and Yesterday.

The current game I play from bulky pix is Heli Hell. They just added cloud saving which is great. Sadly it's the only game I currently support.

Yeah, I'm not denying if their quality decreases... I remember penumbear, meltdown, tec 3001 were some of their best games few years ago. However now, they mostly published casual games not a 'midcore-hardcore' one. Well, probably since casual gamers more dominated the market nowadays. I also miss CM Games comeback, wish The Deer God will bring back the glory of them. Right now, I think the best iOS publisher so far is Noodlecake Studio

Yup... This crossed my mind a few times already. Thing is, it's really been a while since i actually downloaded a Bulkypix game, so recently when i see a release by them i dont really get excited anymore.

Bulkypix kept releasing broken games and never updating them. Any credibility they once had is long gone. Developers have far better publishers available these days.

For myself at least, the name Bulkypix is as trustworthy as the name Zynga.
