Wizard with a Gun developers ‘Galvanic Games’ is shutting down

Galvanic Games was a promising indie studio known best for their work on the Devolver Digital-published twin-stick shooter Wizard with a Gun. Released last year, the nature of the industry and lower-than-expected sales has forced the studio to shut its doors.

Making the unfortunate announcement on Twitter, Patrick Morgan, the president and founder of Galvanic Games said: “It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closure of Galvanic Games. Despite the promising start of Wizard with a Gun, sales are not strong enough to sustain our studio.”

They continued, “The last year has been particularly tough for games. While we had numerous encouraging conversations at DICE and GDC, the process of signing new projects, even in a good year, takes longer than the runway we had left.”

Detailing just how tough it has become to survive in this industry, Morgan stated “It is incredibly difficult to see our team facing the uncertainty of the current job market. I may never get over the irony of spending a decade building my ideal team, only for it to end after our most productive year.”

Wizard with a Gun was a fun and underappreciated rogue-like survival game and the industry will certainly be a little bit worse off without Galvanic Games.
