It was an old project developed by ArtOfCode before the Codidact project even started: https://forum.codidact.org/t/i-have-an-se-clone-how-do-we-feel-about-building-on-that/74

(Why it was named QPixel specifically, I don't know.)

It used a different tech stack than the one the devs had agreed upon and started working. Eventually they decided to go with QPixel instead of the work in progress, to get to minimum viable product launch sooner: https://forum.codidact.org/t/progress-why-its-slow-and-what-were-doing-about-it/1149

I've asked ArtOfCode regarding the origin of the name and can now tell you that the following is the official answer: "*shrug*" luap42‭ about 2 months ago

@luap42 Computers do tend to prefer that things be named, even if the name makes absolutely no sense to anyone, including the person doing the naming. Canina‭ about 2 months ago
