We are a Brazilian game studio committed in delivering awesome digital experiences in cutting edge technologies.



Black River Studios was founded in 2013 inside the Samsung Research and Development Institute thanks to the IT Law and we are based in Manaus, Amazonas - Brazil. Our mission is to delivery high quality games on cutting edge technologies. In 2014 we released our first game called Galaxy 11: Invasion on Google Play and it was a tie-in game for World Cup Samsung’s marketing campaign. In 2015 we released our first original IP called Jake and Tess’ Finding Monsters Adventure on Google Play and Samsung Galaxy Apps. In the same year we had the chance to be one of the launch titles of the Gear VR consumer edition with a VR version of Finding Monsters Adventure. Now in 2016 we continuous our mission to delivery awesomeness in all high end devices.
