Devolver Digital

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Devolver Digital, Inc. is an American video game publisher based in Austin, Texas, specializing in the publishing of indie games. The company was founded in June 2009 by Nigel Lowrie, Harry Miller, Graeme Struthers, Rick Stults, and Mike Wilson, five executives who had been involved with Gathering of Developers and Gamecock Media Group, which published games on developer-friendly terms, but due to the high cost associated with releasing retail games saw themselves acquired and dissolved by larger companies. To avoid this, Devolver Digital instead turned to digital distribution channels.

Devolver Digital started by publishing high-definition remakes of games in the Serious Sam series. After success with these remakes and spin-off games based on the series, Devolver Digital began publishing games from other, smaller independent studios, one of the first being their breakout title, Hotline Miami. The company also operated Devolver Digital Films for film distribution, and majority-owns publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment. As of January 2020, Devolver Digital employs 20 people. The company went public on the Alternative Investment Market in November 2021. The company is primarily owned by Miller, Struthers and Lowrie themselves, with minority stakes by NetEase and Sony Interactive Entertainment.

  • On Hotline Miami and its sequel, the logo is all in red color.
  • On Serious Sam: The Random Encounter, the logo is in gold with two guns on both sides with a tagline "JUST SOME DUDEZ PIMPIN' GAMEZ" at the top.
  • On the trailer for Return to Monkey Island, the logo is in an open crate.

Technique: A still graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: First seen on the remastered version of Serious Sam, Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and it can be seen on the games published by the company since then.
