What's in a name?
Why Swordmonkey? The name "Swordmonkey" is a callback to our founders first job in the video game industry. It was a customer-facing role for a publisher and everyone was required to have an alias. His alias was EpicSwordMonkey, and then some 14-years later, he went full-circle and named the corporation after that alias and thus, Swordmonkey Studios Inc. was born!

    I had the pleasure of collaborating with Swordmonkey Studios on an e-learning project, and it was an outstanding experience. Working with them exposed me to coding best practices and architecture, allowing me to elevate my skills and the company's to a whole new level. Their expertise and dedication to excellence are truly commendable. 100% recommended.

    I've had the privilege of working with them on my project 'My Familiar' over the last two years and it's been an amazing experience. They are polite, professional and fantastic coders. Every milestone set, they've blown past most. Often implementing complicated features projected to take months, in a matter of weeks or even days. If you're looking for a team who can problem solve technical solutions creatively, these are the guys that have that fire in their belly!

    Working with Tyler and his team was an extremely positive experience for our small studio. We don't have a lot of development experience on our team and this was our first project, and Tyler not only delivered on our milestones but helped us improve our workflow and internal processes significantly. He was resourceful, thorough, and approachable. I look forward to another opportunity to work with Tyler and his team, and I would strongly recommend his services to game designers in the future.

    I have absolutely ZERO hesitations recommending Swordmonkey Studios for any development requirements you may need. Swordmonkey has proven time and time again that they are willing to go above and beyond and our project has greatly benefitted from it. You can tell they care about every project they work on, and that really matters.

    As an experienced developer, my responsibilities can be best described as "The Custodian." I am an engaged caretaker for all services that power an application. I am often the first person called when a mess needs cleaned up, or a bug infestation needs extinguished.
