Company Background
After more than a decade of making gems clink and pegs… peggle, PopCap co-founder Jason Kapalka (Bejeweled, Peggle, Plants vs Zombies) founded Blue Wizard Digital in 2014 to provide an outlet for ten years of pent-up violence and lust, with the goal of creating the sexiest, violentest games ever released on mobile, PC, and console platforms. A cabal of degenerates soon shambled from their swampy dens to join this unholy crusade.

Crafters of the most wickedly awesome video games in the hypergalaxy. We are responsible for Shell Shockers, the world’s top egg-based shooter, the best-dressed browser battle Merc.Zone and the cybertronic synthwave tank shooter Nuke.Zone. But there’s more. Like the goriest puzzle games ever made: Slayaway Camp and Friday the 13th Killer Puzzle! As well as oddities such as Headless.gg, Basketbros, and Slashy Camp! And let’s not forget Space Tyrant and Hypergalactic Psychic Table Tennis 3000!

We are a collective of game developers based in the terrifyingly remote outpost of Comox on Vancouver Island, BC, with worldwide internet collaborators in far-flung locales such as Seattle, Chicago, New Zealand, Slovenia and Australia. Since our 2014 spawning by PopCap founder Jason Kapalka (the twisted mind behind Bejeweled, Peggle & Plants vs Zombies), it has been Blue Wizard’s unholy mission to BLUE YOU AWAY with freakalicious electronic fun for (mostly) all ages.
