Bit - The Time Travelling Caveman

Press Kit

What is Bit?

A retro, 8-bit style, interactive storybook for kids involving a time travelling caveman, available for iPhone and iPad.

The Story

Bit is a simple caveman, living in a world of pixels. Wonderful dinosaurs and animals roam the forests of Pixel Land and Bit loves it there. But everything changes when he finds himself frozen in a block of ice…

Thawed out millions of years later by strange creatures from the future, Bit has to find a way back to his own time... Will you help him?

Who's it for?

Aimed at kids aged between 4-8 years old, however even younger kids can enjoy the app and adults will love the retro mini games.


Bit’s story is completely interactive. Kids must help him explore his world and complete tasks along the way. Some of the highlights you’ll encounter:

Retro Mini Games

Kids can visit the arcade and play some classic retro video games. Whack some moles, shoot the invaders from space or help the little penguin across the lake. Unlimited replays, no quarters needed!

8-Bit Style Graphics & Soundtrack

Funnily enough, Pixel Land is made of pixels! All the trees, rivers, volcanoes and animals are rendered in colourful, 8-bit style. That is, until Bit ends up in another time where things aren’t quite the same…

Featuring the Voice of Alex Agnew

Belgian comedian, Alex Agnew, narrates our story and takes you through Pixel Land with his range of funny voices. The story can be read in either English or Dutch.

Animated iMessage Stickers

Included in the app are 24 animated stickers to play with in iMessage.

Safe & Intuitive Play

There are no in-app purchases in Bit. Everything is available from the first time you play. Bit is ideal for 4-8 year olds, but even the younger kids can join in the fun.
