Broken Age

Double Fine and SuperGenius teamed up to produce a modern classic adventure game. Fans of Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island rejoice! An age of peace descends on the land. We discover love is a vibration that allows us to traverse the whole of the universe with full awareness and death is simply a habit to be broken. Amen.

The Walking Dead Game Series

We’ve contributed lovingly-crafted animation to nearly every one of Telltale’s games since Sam and Max: The Devil’s Playhouse. They trust us with the really hard stuff, so it was no surprise when they brought us on to help with The Walking Dead. We put hundreds of hours into this series, and we knew it was going to be a hit. But we had no idea that it would shatter all expectations and win over 80 Game of The Year awards!

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online

We’ve been working on Super Hero Squad Online for so long that we feel a deep connection to it – as if it were our very own. It’s charming, bouncy, stretchy, wonky, incredibly fun.

SuperGenius Needs More SuperGenii

March 26, 2014

There is no place in the world quite like SuperGenius. Portland is a creative hub where quality of life, food, nature, art, and music all come together to form what we consider to be the greatest city in the US. The SuperGenius headquarters sits just outside of Portland in Oregon City, the oldest incorporated city […]

How we turned an outsource studio into something different (and got to work with the best game developers in the world)

February 21, 2014

When we started SuperGenius our goal was to work with the best game developers in the world. In reality, we were a new studio no one had ever heard of with one client, and a small team of young, albeit talented animators with little experience. To top it off, outsourcing had become a dirty word […]

2013: The Year of the Adventure Game

January 29, 2014

We brought entire worlds to life in Forge, introduced dozens of new characters in Marvel Super Hero Squad Online, designed and developed several amazing 2D games, and we still have several titles yet to be announced. We got to work with […]

Broken Age VGX Premiere

December 11, 2013

For those of you who know us, or watch the Double Fine Adventure documentary, you know all about our work on Broken Age. We have been having a blast on this project and the only downside is the team needs to take regular breaks to avoid overdosing on charm and delight. We can’t wait to […]

Meet a SuperGenius: Justin Rice

May 11, 2013

It’s Saturday, springtime in Portland, and while most of us are standing in line for brunch, thumbing through vintage records, grooming our mustaches, and getting spring-themed tattoos, Justin Rice is knitting sweaters for strippers. Like most of us, when we hear the name Justin Rice, we think shit-hot video game animator. How could we not? […]

We Are an Alternative to Outsourcing

Not a fan of outsourcing? Neither are we. This is why we created SuperGenius.

SuperGenius is a new model of support. It is a studio built to handle the needs of real game developers who need more than simply the mass manufacturing of assets.

Our mission is to eliminate any unnecessary time our clients spend managing, revising, fixing, or redoing work. Instead, we handle the entire process, from concept to implementation and ensure everything we deliver is the highest quality and works in game. We do this so our clients can focus on the intense creative and technical process of making the best games possible.
