Klayton and I share an ambitious vision for Bit Bot, reflected in our corporate identity. Take our animated company video, for example. It's not just a visual introduction; it's a glimpse into Bit Bot's future. Could this future include games, comics, toys, or even a film? Perhaps all of the above? Stay tuned. Just remember, at Bit Bot, we're dedicated to building worlds, one Bit at a time.

Joshua Viola Bit Bot CEO & Co-Founder

Josh and I have known each other for 13 years and have worked together on a number of projects, including the Blackstar novel and score for my album Wish Upon a Blackstar, the music video for ‘Unshakeable,’ Josh's debut novel The Bane of Yoto, the Unioverse video game franchise, and so much more. It seemed inevitable that we'd form a company to do what we love on a much deeper level with Bit Bot, with an emphasis on our passion for multimedia.

I've had the pleasure of working both collectively and individually with Klayton and Josh for many years, and recently saw the opportunity to recommend they explore a new venture together. And just a few short months later Bit Bot has come together with unbelievably cool projects already deep in development from films, video games, merchandise, original IP and beyond. I'm incredibly excited to be a part of this new venture and see a huge future ahead for Bit Bot.
