A group of friends wanted to create something fun that allowed people to be expressive using animated GIFs. They explored various ideas but it was on January 3rd, 2014 when they realized they wanted to make it a game and call it "YIX."
The word "YIX" doesn't stand for anything outside of it being a fun word to say, which makes sense considering the company’s mantra is "Fun Furst." (Yes, it's intentionally misspelled because it's more Fun.)
The team started playing a rough version of the game using text messages and made the agreement that they wanted to build it, even if it was so they could simply play it with each other.
The YIX team is made up of 6 founders.
They ♥ the NW.
Located in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington.
YIX will soon be available on more platforms, more devices and will be launching its own advertising platform, guaranteed to please both players and sponsors.
