Super Soul’s mission is to make games that matter to people. We have published commercial and experimental games available on Xbox and for the PC. We also created a local game development group called Run Jump Dev, participate in Game Jams and create interactive art installations.

We make video games so to be good developers we have to have our environment be a character right? So here goes… Super Soul works out of a defunct radio station called Super Soul, which is where the name of the company came from. The back room of the radio station still has the equipment and records and on an occasional Monday you may find everyone in the office rocking out to the Thriller album on an MJ Monday. We would not be here without some awesome support from the Ignite Project and the Urban League of Lexington. Shout out!
