About Us

A small team with big ideas, BitFinity was founded by two brothers who are lifelong gamers.  Inspired by Nintendo’s works, BitFinity aims to focus on gameplay-driven concepts to create unique and fun experiences.  The company’s founder, Matthew Taranto, already had a sizable audience with his popular parody webcomic, “Brawl in the Family,” but wanted to use the strip as a launching point for bigger ideas.  Today, BitFinity is working on an action/rhythm game called “Tadpole Treble,” and released a playable demo last fall.

Matthew TarantoArt, Music, Game Design
Currently known as the artist and writer of popular video game webcomic Brawl in the Family, Matthew’s passions are deeply rooted in the fields of art, music, and video games. For the unfamiliar, BitF doesn’t just use still images–a few of the comics are set to medleys of Nintendo songs arranged by Matthew himself, while others are based on entirely original compositions–and all of them exude a rich love of Nintendo’s worlds and characters.

A professional church pianist and singer, Matthew has been developing Tadpole Treble on and off for a long time, but recently has been focused on spending most of his free time fine-tuning the game concept and its music. The 28-year-old artist/pianist got his BA in Graphic Design five years ago, so Tadpole Treble is the perfect way to combine his passions of art, music, and gaming into one dedicated project.
