High Voltage History

premiere video-game developer

High Voltage Software was founded in 1993, by Kerry J. Ganofsky in Hoffman Estate, Illinois. The company started with just four employees with desks made of doors atop old sawhorses.

From there, the empire grew rapidly, reaching a new height with the completion of Lego Racers in 1999. From there, the cult classic, Hunter: the Reckoning took 2002 by storm. In 2009, we tackled the Nintendo Wii with the award-winning first-person shooter, The Conduit.

Since then, we worked on Injustice: Gods Among Us, Mortal Kombat X, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, and many other high-quality games.

In 2015, we were proud to announce Damaged Core for the Oculus Rift, which released the following year and proved to be a defining title for the new platform. We followed that with Dragon Front, the first cross-platform Oculus Rift and GearVR title.

While we were hard at work on our VR titles, we somehow found the time to open a sister studio in New Orleans, and we’ve continued to grow our presence at both ends of the Mississippi River! Today, we’re still just as excited as when we started!  Our passion is helping us to stay on the forefront of emerging technology as we develop another round of great games.

We’ve been at this more than a quarter-century, and we’d love for you to be a part of our story!
