Description

We are an independent game development team from Skövde, Sweden, with a strong vision to create exceptional experiences and memorable games. Our goal is 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 craft our games in a way that lets each player choose their own path, but forces them to face the consequences of the choices they make.

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 were picked up by the Gothia Innovation Incubator and ended up getting their own offices under their roof.

After that

Since that first summer together we have worked on several projects, both big and small, the main one being Magnetic: Cage Closed, which was released in the summer of 2015 on Steam and later in August 2015 on XBOX One as well. You can read more about Magnetic under the projects section. Besides working with magnets we also have a few other projects in development: a pc horror game called Medusa's Labyrinth and a mobile puzzle game called Crazy Sorting Factory.
