Wizard with a Gun developer Galvanic Games has announced that it is shutting down. The studio launched Wizard with a Gun for PC and consoles last year, but in spite of critical acclaim, it seems the roguelite twin-stick shooter hasn’t been able to find the sort of audience that it needed to.

In an announcement published on Twitter, Galvanic Games founder and president Patrick Morgan wrote that though the game got off to a good star, Wizard with a Gun has not sold enough to sustain the studio, while the team has also not been able to sign on with a publisher for a new project fast enough.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closure of Galvanic Games,” Morgan wrote. “Despite the promising start of Wizard with a Gun, sales are not strong enough to sustain our studio. 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.”

Wizard with a Gun, published by Devolver Digital, released last October for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Earlier this month, in May, the game also added 4-player co-op, new endgame content, and more with a free update.
