Super Rare Games is a leading publisher of physical video games, releasing more than 70 games on the Nintendo Switch, making us Europe’s most prolific physical Switch publisher! With a passionate aim to support indie developers of all levels, physically preserve great video games, and offer collectors playable and displayable delights, we live by the mantra to be indies’ best friend.

Super Rare is currently rapidly and substantially expanding, primarily via our original digital publishing label, Super Rare Originals. To date, we have announced 6 original indie titles, with many more in the pipeline behind closed doors. These varied, exciting games from talented individuals and groups have our entire company buzzing.

  • Regular voluntary team socials (because we’re all pals but we will beat you at Mario Kart) 🏎
  • A supportive, friendly team who have your back and will help you grow 💪
  • A sofa and gaming area to relax at during breaks (or bring in your own console for your desk) 🕹
  • Our desks are electronic because we truly are living in 2050 over here (plus they’re good for your back) 🔮
  • Sometimes George orders in Subway for everyone and sometimes you can sneakily add extra sides in and, like, nobody notices 👀
