HISTORY

Game Swing (originally named Reign Bros) was founded in 2013 by five eager game design students and has an unusual and inspiring story. Brought together by coincidence and a colorful prototype made during Nordic Game Jam, they decided to follow their dreams, and see if this prototype could be turned into a full-blown Console release…

STIKBOLD!

The prototype was a dodgeball-type local-multiplayer game called Stikbold!. It was a weird but bold game, and it resonated well enough with the audience to win the “most fun” award and came in 3rd overall.

Motivated by this “success”, they continued to work on Stikbold! while submitting it to various contests and showcases, and applying to grants. Showing the game gave them some fun experiences while providing valuable feedback from players. Since they were straight out of university, and didn’t have real credentials in game development yet, Game Swing used any accolades Stikbold! received to give them credibility. Eventually, they were fortunate enough to trade this validation in for development support from a foundation called The Nordic Game Program. Needless to say, this was a huge deal to them, and a crucial step on a journey, longer and harder than they would have ever imagined.

RECENT

After more than three years of development, Stikbold! is finally ready for release in Q2 of 2016. An accomplishment achieved through blood, sweat, tears, luck and laughter… and one they’re incredibly proud of!

Currently, Game Swing is doing some contract work to pay the bills, and preparing to begin work on the next title, a storytelling game for mobile devices.
