Welcome to Whiskeybarrel Studios!

I am Oliver Joyce, founder of the studio and a game designer best known for the popular game series Swords and Sandals. Whiskey barrel Studios was formed in 2013 with three prime directives for all of our games. A Whiskeybarrel game must:

  • Be different. Strive to stand out from the sea of soul-sapping endless runners and Match 3 clones.
  • Be creative. Great experiences don’t have to mean Triple A budgets. Let the gameplay shine.
  • Be charming. Make hand crafted games that exude warmth, humour and nostalgia.

We are currently hard at work building two titles: the next chapter in the S&S franchise Swords and Sandals V, and an S&S spin-off venture with a working title of  Ships and Scurvy.

2018 will be a big year for the studio. Join us for the ride as we expand the Swords and Sandals universe into something amazing.

Cheers, Oliver Joyce
