History

Super Entertainment is an independent game developer trio based in Melbourne, Australia, dedicated to bringing the golden age of console gaming fun into the future.

Super Entertainment developers Steve and Shath first met at Halfbrick Studios working together in "The Ninja Pack" - the creators of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride.

Both huge fans of Dance Dance Revolution and Rock Band, they seemed destined to make their own hit rhythm game.

Spin Rhythm was never meant to be that game.

The original Spin prototype bombarded players from all angles with coloured pieces, and required extreme mental gymnastics to match colours to a tri-toned wheel. There was no music involved, and most people's brains hurt after playing for a short time.

Shath's love of all things rhythm led him to sync Spin's prototype gameplay to one of his favourite EDM bangers. In an instant Spin Rhythm was born.

In 2017 Steve and Shath decided to take the plunge and start their own studio - Super Entertainment - with the goal of bringing their beloved experiences of late 80s and early 90s consoles into the modern age.

Their first release was Steppy Pants, a goofy walking simulator about staying off the cracks in the pavement. More than 20 million players have experienced the frustration and blissful tension of walking the streets of Steppy Pants.

In 2019 Super Entertainment is excited to be launching Spin Rhythm, a colourful, accessible EDM rhythm game with fluid analogue controls and hand-crafted levels. Grab your DJ controller, phone, mouse or controller and join the rhythm revolution. Spin Rhythm will make you feel closer to the music than ever before.
