Human Head Studios is a computer game development company located in Madison, Wisconsin.
Human Head was founded in 1997 by a group of six developers formerly from Raven Software--Chris Rhinehart, Paul MacArthur, Shane Gurno, Ben Gokey, James Sumwalt, and Ted Halsted—later joined by game producer Tim Gerritsen. Human Head's first game was Rune, a third-person Viking action game. The company's most recent release is the long-anticipated first-person shooter Prey, a game executive produced by 3D Realms.

In 2002 Human Head established a branch internal to the company dedicated to the development of non-electronic games, including role-playing games, board games and card games. The first release from this branch, The Redhurst Academy of Magic Student Handbook, won an Origins Award in 2003. Human Head released several other board games and card games, but the Adventure Games Division was eventually closed in 2006.
