Human Head Studios

Human Head Studios is a computer game development company located in Madison, Wisconsin.

It was founded in October 1997 by a group of six developers formerly from Raven Software: Chris Rhinehart, Paul MacArthur, Shane Gurno, Ben Gokey, James Sumwalt, and Ted Halsted—later joined by game producer Tim Gerritsen. Their first game was Rune, a third-person Viking action game. The company's most recent release was the long-anticipated first-person shooter Prey, a game that was executive produced by 3D Realms.

In 2002, they established a branch internal to the company dedicated to the development of non-electronic games, including role-playing games, board games and card games. The first release from this branch, The Redhurst Academy of Magic Student Handbook, won an Origins Award in 2003. They released several other board games and card games, but the Adventure Games Division was eventually closed in 2006.

On April 20, 2007, a news report indicated that the company's headquarters were at least partially destroyed in a fire. No injuries were reported. On October 1, 2007, the company moved back into their newly renovated offices.

Famous quotes containing the words human and/or head:

    I know that human good fortune never remains in the same place.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)

    [Rutherford B. Hayes] was a patriotic citizen, a lover of the flag and of our free institutions, an industrious and conscientious civil officer, a soldier of dauntless courage, a loyal comrade and friend, a sympathetic and helpful neighbor, and the honored head of a happy Christian home. He has steadily grown in the public esteem, and the impartial historian will not fail to recognize the conscientiousness, the manliness, and the courage that so strongly characterized his whole public career.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
