History

The Big Bang

At the beginning there were the monkeys - the founders of international award winning animation studio Monkeystack, based in Adelaide South Australia. Alongside commercial advertising work for bread and butter, the monkeys worked on their own interlectual property in childeren's television and games and working with the likes of Nickelodeon, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and KidsCo.

The Double Happy Universe

Born from an idle drawing in 2004, the heroes of the Double Happy Universe Pink and Blue may have first met the world as an animated mobile phone wallpaper, but today they're much larger than life. They feature in an ongoing series of webisodes as well as the upcoming adventure game 'Double Happy Vs. The Infinite Sadness : Pharos'. 2xCubed is a collaborative who aim to bring the healing power of cosmic randomness to animation fans and adventure game lovers around the world.
