About Us

Protostar is an award-winning, independent games developer based in Brisbane, Australia. It was co-founded in 2014 by two former Halfbrick veterans, Dean Loades and Matt Knights. The pair set up shop in one of their homes with the simple goal of creating fun game-play experiences.

Since then, the team has grown to seven members and successfully released seven mobile games, including worldwide hits, Sling Kong, Super Starfish and It’s Literally Just Mowing.

As a small team, Protostar has the flexibility to try new and interesting game ideas. They rapidly prototype and create original games and focus on the elements that make a game fun and interesting.

Protostar also believes in working toward a better future for all of us and donates 10% of profits each year to effective altruism charities.
