Longsword Studios, Inc.
Longsword Studios, Inc. was a one-person independent video game studio run by Garret Polk. It was closed in March 2018.
Since the age of two I've been playing and fascinated by video games. After many years working as a programmer and engineer on security software I finally chose to pursue my lifelong dream of making games. So began Longsword Studios and my new career.
Wondee is my first commercial game. It started as an attempt to make the simplest game I could. 3D games are difficult, so many small developers make 2D games. So, could I make a 1D game? Over many months I found the answer was, kinda. Wondee is a 1D action game and takes inspiration from the arcade 2D games of my youth, chasing dots and eating monsters, dodging sharp objects and trying to get a top score. Mix in some fuzzy puppet eyeballs, old-fashioned sound effects and music, and you get Wondee. Then I added in unlockable upgrades which change how you play the game, and cosmetic items, because we all like hats.
