Appxplore (iCandy) Ltd. is a mobile game development studio based in Kuala Lumpur. Established in 2011, it has published a number of titles to public and critical acclaim. In 2014, Appxplore was acquired by venture accelerator Fatfish Internet Group, and has since been spun-off into iCandy Interactive Ltd, a mobile games group publicly traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX:ICI).

Appxplore started life as a modest five-man startup riding the wave of a flourishing tech start-up economy in Malaysia. Hailing from diverse backgrounds in content creation, the motley crew of artists and programmers wrote history when their debut effort became the first game in the country to be listed on the App Store. The success of "Lightopus" paved the way for increasingly polished and sophisticated releases, all achieving downloads in the region of seven digits.
