About

Who are we?

Cliax Games is a small indie developer headed by DJ Coco. He’s helped by various freelancers from around the world on a wide variety of products. At Cliax Games, we believe in making our games fill gaps in the market to make them stand out against the hordes of other indie developers out there. We don’t make games to chase trends, we make games we want to play ourselves.

“Cliax? Don’t you mean Climax?”

Nah, it’s not a typo! Cliax is derived from Cliaxium, a fictional element from our Cliax Codec universe. Since our main focus lies on developing the Cliax Codec game first and foremost, it seemed like a fitting decision to name the team after the game. The cogwheel with the little crystal inside that’s in our logo also originates from there.
