Human Head Studios is an American 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. They were working on Prey 2, the sequel to the first game before it was ultimately cancelled.
