May the Pineapples be with you


Pineapple on Pizza Studios is Games & Digital Arts Studio based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

We're a small indie team dedicated to uplifting and promoting African artists by producing high quality, African influenced content, targeted towards both local & International audiences.



Here at Pineapple on Pizza Studios we aim to bring the unique flare of South African artists and creators to an international stage, and become a competing force in the global games industry.


Our mission is to build a creative, nurturing & sustainable environment for artists.

We want to uplift, and support creatives doing what they love, in a sustainable and profitable fashion that contributes to the growth & betterment of the local and international gaming industries.


  • To create awareness around the South African Games Industry.

  • To build an inclusive and creatively free workspace

  • To make an impact on the games industry

  • To make games that we want to play.

  • Money...of course we want money. How else would we pay our hefty gamer Wi-fi bills?


In September 2022, Pineapple on Pizza Studios was founded, with the vision of giving aspiring and talented artists more opportunities for success and creative freedom. With just a few friends and a dream, a studio was born.

In 2023 we were incubated by Tshimologong Precinct and became part of the Telkom Digital Future Makers program.

During 2023 we were nominated for, and took home various awards and prizes including:
- Fakugesi Rising Star (Winner)
-Games Industry Africa Rising Star (Nominee)
-2nd Place Ayoba Hackathon 

In 2024, we've joined the Google Indie Games Accelerator, as well as the Creation Afrique program supported by the French Embassy to South Africa! We're super excited to bring our games to the next level!
