Flipline IDS LLC, also known as Flipline Studios, is an American video game development company which mainly produces online games, mobile games, and PC games made in Adobe Flash. It was founded by Matthew "Matt" Neff and Anthony "Tony" Solary in 2004 in Cleveland, Ohio.


2004–2006: Early years and web design[edit]

Matthew Neff and Anthony Solary were two digital arts students at the Cleveland Institute of Art[2]. During their time at college, they have made The Mawglin: Rise of the Half-Breed, a side-scrolling role-playing game, and worked a few clients such as Donley's, a construction company[3] and the Cleveland Museum of Art.[4]

After Graduation, Neff and Solary wanted to make a digital design company, and so they founded Flipline Interactive Design Studios (shortened to Flipline IDS) in May 2004. It initially focused on web animation and web design, while continuing to work with clients. Their first product was an unreleased television series set in Antarctica, named Freezing Pointe. Jurgen Faust said about its creation, "Neff and Solary made more money than they paid tuition". He also said that they were capable of making a business before they started.[3]

The name Flipline was decided in college while trying to find a name that rhymes with "design" and had a .com domain that was not taken. Initially, Neff and Solary wanted to use the name "Flipline Design", but they forwent this idea after graudation because it was too rhyme-y.[citation needed]

Other personal projects made by them during this time include 555 Modified, a clothing shop for punk rock bands and FlipChat, a messaging service. They also went under the trade name of Frozen Dinner Studios.[5][6]

On February 28, 2005, Neff and Solary legally established Flipline IDS LLC.[7]

2006–2020: Papa Louie and online games[edit]

In 2006, Flipline discontinued Freezing Pointe and started releasing Adobe Flash games. Their first games were Guppy Guard Express and Meteor Blastor. Later that year, they made Papa Louie: When Pizzas Attack!, starting the Papa Louie series. In 2007, they completely moved away from web design and officially transitioned to just Flash games.[2]

In 2018, Flipline launched their last Adobe Flash web game, Papa's Scooperia. In 2020, they moved away from the Adobe Flash platform when Adobe announced its discontinuation.[8]

2019–present: Focus on mobile and PC games[edit]

In 2019, Flipline announced that they will stop making "HD" games, as their "To Go!" games can be played on both small and large screen sizes.[citation needed]

In 2023, Flipline released their first game on Steam, Papa's Freezeria Deluxe.[9]
