Story of Khaelou*

Khaelou is an Independent Game Studio created by 22-year-old Georgia native, My-khael Pierce. With many technological achievements and collaborations sparking My-khael's career, creating new game experiences and software has always been a dedicated hobby he worked towards.

Meanwhile, the umbrella that would hold his future projects was born in 2021. In addition, My-khael took the intuitive to design and implement the assets for his upcoming studio. The domain was registered, and 3 new mobile games were announced to his close friends via social media expecting a Mid-2021 release.

With a background in Computer Programming and Graphical Design, these skills alone would be the key aspects towards building the ever-so-charming mobile titles Leap Buoy, Aero Out, & Magic 8 Simulator. These initial projects were born with the initiative to be fun, kid-friendly, yet uniquely difficult.

Before branding Khaelou, My-khael was on a journey in Las Vegas, NV which consisted of shipping a mobile app with a former business partner. Pierce gained knowledge amongst many entrepreneurs, investors, and new friends that would help towards promoting his projects.

Pierce's first mobile game was titled Little Buoy, being practically a 2D version of Leap Buoy released in 2017. At 17 years old, he had amassed roughly $20,000 from advertisement revenue and won both district & state Georgia technology competitions 2 years consecutively from the game. Little Buoy used Unity 3D and C# though inspired by many Adobe Flash games.

Design inspirations often start from cartoons, video games, and movies watched growing up as a kid of the 2000s. The logo is inspired by his mother's favorite color; the forks of the K each signify his mother's four boys. Outside of technology, My-khael is heavily motivated by the success of his older cousin yet rapper, Lil Baby.
