About Lost Minds

Resellers / affiliates

If you think our mac software is interesting and you think you could do a good job selling it via your website or platform we might have something for you. The payment platform paddle.com we use to sell our software now offers an affiliate functionality, so we could set you up there and for all sales you generate that way you'll get a cut. Paddle handles all the taxes and transactions, and pay you your cut directly.

Mac and iOS software

Lost Minds is a small macOS and iOS developer run by me, Lars Gäfvert, with the occasional help from friends and associates on different projects.

Along side the software development I also have a background in industrial design engineering and work as a product design and usability consultant based near Stockholm, Sweden.

If you have an idea for a Patternodes or Vectoraster project you'd like my help with, take a look at the consulting offer:

Lost Minds started in 1998 and has been active on and off since then. In the early years the focus was shareware game development (Blobs and AstroSquid for example), with the biggest release being a collaboration with Ambrosia Software (Now sadly gone) called SketchFighter 4000 Alpha in 2006 (now re-released in 2020 after the demise of Ambrosia!). It was in these early years the name Lost Minds was picked, for reasons now forgotten. Since then the name has just stuck as it's memorable and has a nice ring to it, even though I personally have long since stopped thinking about what it means.

Since then game development has given way to more utilitarian software development, primarily the macOS graphic design applications Vectoraster, and Patternodes, along with some iOS apps.
