Sirvo Studios, the home of Asher Vollmer, and developer of Threes [$2.99 / Free], has just announced their next game. After Vollmer's Royals' mini release last year (which still needs to come to mobile in some form), the studio has announced Guildings, which they've started teasing. Guildlings is described as "a fantasy adventure in a world of wizards and wifi," and "a mobile adventure about teenagers road-tripping through a unique fantasy world." The artwork shows an interesting stylistic mix: characters with tennis shoes, cell phones, and spiky armor.


If you're excited to play Guildlings – whatever it may be – you'll have to wait, as the game is not set to be available until 2017, but it will be on mobile. I mean, the characters do have cell phones, and the talk of wifi seems to indicate that mobile plays a role in this world. But you'll have to be patient to see just what exactly Guildlings is as Sirvo reveals more. And considering Threes went through the whole 2048 cloning fiasco, them keeping this one close to the vest for as long as possible is understandable.

    2017 is a ways away. But it's truly time they got theirs 100%. I always hated cloned games unless they brought something original to the table and 2048 was just a huge pos imo. And I rarely say bad things about games or Devs. All the clones I couldn't pick any of the 2048 Devs from a line up. But I love Three's still to this day and bought multi-platform copies.

      It's "Threes" not "Three's"

      Sorry. I had to get that off my chest.

      • rezn

        It's autocorrect. I edited this twice because of that and finally gave up.

        Ah yes. It tried to do the same to me in my post further down.

      Well it was never the guy's fault for it becoming popular. He never meant to monetize his game in any way.

    Ha, I like that wizarding smartphone. It makes sense that they'd carry around all their runes and incantations in e-book form.

    I'll buy it just for the cloning desaster alone, Threes was a beautiful, innovative and very polished game, that had a great charme. But from what they've shown, this game could be an Instabuy on itself. I love what they've shown so far. This is exciting! I'm so glad they didn't give up after 2048.

      Me too. But this looks and sounds awesome anyway!

  • Chumbake

    That 2048 stuff still upsets me.

  • dancj

    Honestly I think there's a good chance that 2048 actually helped Threes make more money by increasing its exposure.

    smart phone as a magical device is already a super bad ass idea, which could be stolen

    Awesome! A game where one of the main characters is black, but he isn't a racist stereotype. More of this please.
