Ska Studios is an independent game developer founded by James Silva in 2001 as Totally Screwed Software. The name was changed in 2005 to Ska Software, and then in 2007 to Ska Studios.

The studio is well known in indie gaming for its games that utilize graphic cartoon violence. The games often pay tribute to the retro gaming scene, with the first two entries of its Zombie Smashers X series paying tribute to River City Ransom, while Blood Zero is a tribute to The Legend of Zelda.

Games[edit]

Four characters stand at the center of a bar, fighting off zombies and ninjas coming towards them from both sides. One of the characters has grabbed a zombie and is on the way down from a pile-driver move.
In Charlie Murder, players play as members of a garage punk rock band that is fighting a demonic army during the apocalypse.
