Description

Guru Games is an independent game company working out of Skövde, Sweden. There are currently 4 members on our team and our goal is to create intense, story-focused experiences and games that you will play through in an evening but think about for a week. We want to leave players with something more than a short action extravaganza, we want to make them think about their actions within the virtual worlds that we create. We design our games in a way that let’s them choose their own path, but forces them to face the consequences of the choices they make. We believe that games should respect the players time and commitment, and therefore we focus on creating short games of high quality for busy people.

History

Early history

Guru Games was founded in 2013 by a group of enthusiastic students from the Skövde University that did not want to go home for the summer. Instead they started working together, spending long hours in empty classrooms until they drew the attention of the foremost game incubator in Sweden. Shortly thereafter they moved into their own office as part of Sweden Game Arena and the Gothia Incubator.

After that

Since that first summer together they have worked on several projects, both big and small. Their first big launch was Magnetic: Cage Closed, a first person puzzle game set in a dystopian sci-fi prison. Magnetic was released in the summer of 2015 on Steam and later in August the same year on XBOX One. You can read more about Magnetic under the projects section. Since then the studio has moved on to work on many different projects and platforms. Their latest success was a pc horror game called Medusa's Labyrinth, a first person horro game set in ancient Greece. They have also worked together with other noteworthy studios such as King and Resolution games.
