Gnomic Studios is a game developer based in Perth, Western Australia. It was founded in early 2009 by programmer Aranda Morrison, Scott Millar and Adam Matera to develop a game for the prestigious Microsoft XNA Dream.Build.Play. competition. Over the course of development Jeremy Prestwood and Joel Taylor joined the team as audio engineer and composer. The finished product, Square Off, ranked 15th overall and was second place for Australia. With the success of placing in the top 20 Gnomic then decided to develop Square Off for release for the Xbox Live Indie Gamer (XBLIG) platform. The final product was released on December 17th, 2009 to critical acclaim and has continued to be a popular choice on the marketplace. Not wanting to rest on our laurels we continued to work on Square Off, adding more levels, more music and more features. During this time we also gained 3 extra staff members Josh Stewart, Ben Schroeder and Ben Wright who have helped immeasurably in finding even the most miniscule faults. This has culminated in us releasing the first major patch for Square Off on July 19th, 2010 via XBLIG for free. To celebrate this patch we also recently lowered the cost to $1 (80 MS points). We are now contemplating working on a sequel for Square Off and releasing the original for PC. We are also looking to branch out into other games and platforms like Android, iPhone and Windows Phone.
