+359 (89) 63 77 144


We're studio Pi-Dev, creatures with passion about cool video games! A very small team plus a bunch of friends to help around! We don't just develop games, we build worlds. Though small, we punch above our weight with a network of talented friends who join the fun. Currently working on ColorBlend FX: Desaturation, a mythical puzzle-platformer metroidvania, where you face the consequences of a tyrannical government's disastrous project. This thing plunged the world into a bleak, colorless nightmare – a colorpocalypse! As the vibrant hues vanish, you embark on a quest to restore stolen colors and prevent a world from succumbing to a colorless oblivion.


A cup of coffee

Believe it or not, Pi-Dev's story starts with a cup of coffee where stirring defied the laws of physics, forming the undeniable symbol of the greek letter Pi. Our then-future CEO, Petar "PeterSvP" Petrov, saw this as a sign of a long night ahead fueled by caffeine and logo design - the Pi-Dev logo was then stamped on anything PeterSvP created up until today.

Game Maker & Indie Revolution era

During his high school and university years, PeterSvP made various game prototypes and small games in Game Maker - A Super Mario and Lode Runner fan-mades, a physics based tetris and extremely hardcore platformer. He was very active at the Game Maker Community where he discovered the legendary Derek Yu, and was also helping a local Bulgarian Game Maker Community. During his work career, PeterSvP wanted to actually do something commercial and he started and cancelled another batch of prototypes: Crafterria, a Minecraft-alike survival, A VR Breakout game, and then he eventually settled on something...

Desaturation era

It was "On Fest" in Sofia where PeterSvP met the guys from The Sixth Hammer and Dreamteck. after some godlike brainstorming and playing Limbo and Inside, he finally settled on a project - ColorBlend FX: Desaturation. The pandemic started which was kinda a Desaturation by itself and this contributed to the game lore. Peter met DarksSilencer, his music composer, Mitko, the bizdev guy, Christofer White + bulgarian content creators like NoThx and CrazyR and slowly, Desaturation started taking shape. At this time, Team Pi-Dev officially became Studio Pi-Dev with the upcoming Desaturation release on the road map. The publisher seeking journey was hardcode, we failed to sign because of platformers being very difficuylt genre, but I did got some nice industry connections. The game was eventually funded by friends & community members.
