We are Jason and Nicole Stark. We’ve combined our decades of games industry experience with the varied skills of our occasionally helpful children. Based in the heart of paradise, Noosa, Australia, we make serious games with silly names.
Jason Stark is a veteran of the games industry with decades of experience and 10+ shipped game titles. He’s worked on titles with budgets exceeding ten million dollars with IP holders and publishers such as Rare, Animal Logic, Kennedy Mitchel Miller, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft. His skill set includes art direction, project management, games coding, character animation, games design and creative writing.
Nicole Stark is the proud owner of the inaugural ANZ Women in Games Award for Creative Inspiration. She’s held senior positions on a variety of shipped game titles with project sizes ranging from triple A console to indie mobile. She’s had her surfing animations praised by an Australian champion surfer and her Barbie costume designs praised by Mattel. She was one of the first female developers in Brisbane, and is passionate about encouraging more girls to make and play games.
Raven Stark is the talented young person responsible for the beloved comic book sequences in Disparity’s first game, “Run Fatty Run”. Since then her talents and responsibilities have continued to grow becoming a key member of the Disparity team. As well as working on character concept art, promotional materials and comic book sequences for Disparity, Raven is studying Animation at university.
