Hidden Variable Studios

An independent video game studio in Los Angeles, dedicated to creating an oasis for our players and teammates alike.



Back in January of 2011, throwing caution (and stable careers) to the wind, the founders of Hidden Variable Studios decided to embark on the roller coaster ride of starting their own game company. Many years and more than 25 million downloads later, Hidden Variable is busy applying decades of collective development experience to bring exciting and innovative games to audiences worldwide. Currently hard at work on both Skullgirls Mobile and a new, original title, our team is thrilled to be at the forefront of innovation in this rapidly evolving industry.

For us, success ultimately comes from fostering an environment which encourages growth, creativity, and wellness. By doing so, we are able to develop meaningful, high quality experiences which provide players respite from the everyday world. As a studio, we believe this ethos is what allows us to grow and retain an amazing and dedicated fan base.

For all the many challenges and complexities that go into making a game, there is something more — that intangible element, that mysterious equation, that extra ingredient — which turns the routine into the fantastic. Hidden Variable Studios is in the business of finding, isolating, and nurturing those rare and special components. Play our games to find them for yourself!

In addition to creating and publishing our own unique titles, Hidden Variable Studios is also available for contract software development services with the right partners.
