Welcome to Whiskeybarrel Studios

My name is Oliver Joyce. I am a game developer best known as the creator of the popular game series Swords and Sandals but in a decade in the web and mobile games space I have built over 200 games for game portals and clients alike. Game design is my passion.

In 2014, I set up Whiskeybarrel Studios, an independent games studio. Here at Whiskeybarrel Studios I endeavour to create original, highly addictive and fun games that stand out amongst a sea of soul-sapping endless runners and match three clones. With over 10 years of game industry experience under my belt, my aim is to craft games that stand out from the pack; games that exude warmth, humour and replayability.

I’m currently hard at work building two new games in the Swords and Sandals franchise as well as a seafaring adventure Ships and Scurvy.

My medieval adventure RPG You Are A Knight, a turn based combat RPG available for download on the App Store here and Google Play here.
