THQ Studio Australia is the Australian-development arm of the video game company, THQ. The studios was founded in Brisbrane, Australia and developed games that uses a license from Nickelodeon, such as The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and SpongeBob Squarepants. In 2011, THQ Studio Australia announced to make a game based on Marvel's The Avengers. However, the studio closed in August before the game can be made.

Nickname: "Mosaic Australia"
Logo: On a black background, we see the 2000 THQ logo fade in and zoom out. Two red square pixel-like dots come from the left as they leave a trail that forms a mosaic version of Australia in white. The THQ logo then superimposes itself onto the continent. Suddenly, an explosion occurs that cause the mosaic dots to float around the THQ logo. The dots come back together to form the same Australian mosaic again, with the studios' 2 hometowns marked in red. The words "developed by" fades in above while "studioaustralia" fades in below. The words shine as we fade out.
FX/SFX: The dots moving, and the mosaic flying around.
Music/Sounds: A whoosh as the THQ logo zooms out, random computer-like noises when the dots draw the mosaic, a jet-engine starting during the dots appearance, a synth explosion when the mosaic explodes, and a synth whoosh the the dots come back together. A low-pitched gong-like sound is heard when the logo is completed.
Availability: Rare. Debut on the studios' first Nickelodeon game, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies. Can be seen on different Nickelodeon related games developed by the company, examples include Avatar: The Burning Earth and SpongeBob SquarePants: Lights, Camera, Pants!
Scare Factor: Minimal, but can be raised a little higher for people who are not fans of glitchy sounds in darkness.
