X-Ray Kid Studios is a privately held entertainment company specializing in Video Game Development, Comic Books, Television Production and Film based in Newport Beach, California and Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.. The company is best known for its work producing animation and art for Google's Lively project.


X-Ray Kid Studios was founded in 2006 by Jeff Matsuda, Mike Christian and Brian Wyser.

In June 2008, Google released Google Lively, with art, animation and characters designed and created by X-Ray Kid Studios under contract to Google, as Google's first entertainment / games project.

Under direction by X-Ray Kid staff, Mindwalk Studios in Beijing built many of the 3D avatars and animations for Lively.[1]

Citing economic factors and a focus on core projects, Google eventually shut down Lively in 2008. [2]
