Spaddlewit Inc. was founded by A.J. Freda in 2012. A.J. works collaboratively with Mike Antonakes, a longtime friend and work partner. The dynamic duo have never actually worked at the same table before – A.J. lives with his wife and children in South Florida, and Mike is is a graduate of UOIT's game development program in Ontario, Canada. Nevertheless, they have been working steadily on quality mobile titles since late 2009, and hope to continue producing more in the future!
As independent developers, our goal is to provide uniquely compelling game experiences within the confines of mobile platforms. We don't like to 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. Neither of us would 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, our creations primarily involve iOS devices, but we have recently been flirting with Android as well. Our 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 consider ourselves living proof that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
