Halfbrick Studios Pty Ltd (commonly referred to as simply Halfbrick) is an Australian video game developer based in Brisbane. The company was founded in 2001 by six people in a basement in Brisbane, Australia, and primarily worked on licensed games until 2008. They released the highly-acclaimed Fruit Ninja (2010) and Jetpack Joyride (2011).
Outside their Brisbane headquarters, Halfbrick opened five offices in Sydney, Adelaide, Spain, Bulgaria, and Los Angeles. In March 2012, Halfbrick Studios acquired Onan Games for an undisclosed price to make use of their software Mandreel, which allows games to support iOS, Android, Adobe Flash and HTML5 development.
By 2015, Fruit Ninja had been downloaded over 1 billion times.
