Spaddlewit Inc. was founded by A.J. Freda in 2010. For over 3 years, A.J. has worked collaboratively with Mike Antonakes, his longtime friend and work partner. Together, they created Roly Poly Putt and TraceRace, the latter of which was a finalist in the 2013 Canadian Videogame Awards.
As an independent developer, Spaddlewit's goal is to provide uniquely compelling game experiences within the confines of mobile platforms. Spaddlewit doesn't color within the lines - our strengths lie in breaking with conventions, coming up with our own solutions, and just having fun while working, pure and simple. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for the amount of passion we've put into our titles, and the company as a whole.
So far, Spaddlewit has designed, developed, and distributed three apps on the App Store and the Google Play Store. Spaddlewit's long-term company goal is to be as inclusive as possible regarding mobile platform support, so that our titles achieve parity between every major smartphone OS out there.
We believe we are living proof that the whole is greater than the sum of our parts.
