Stavros Fasoulas is a Finnish game programmer. He is mostly known as the designer and developer of the Commodore 64 games Sanxion, Delta and Quedex. The games were published by the British publisher Thalamus.

Sanxion (1986) and Delta (1987) were standard-issue shoot 'em ups. Sanxion had a split screen that allowed the action to be presented from two viewpoints. The music in Sanxion and Delta was composed by video game music composer Rob Hubbard. Quedex (1987) was a game with an original idea, where the player steered a ball in a maze. Fasoulas worked on a game entitled Cargo in 1988 with Simon Nicol but it was never released.[1] Fasoulas's career as a game programmer was cut short when he was drafted into the Finnish Defence Forces.

For the Amiga Fasoulas made a game called Galactic, slightly resembling Bubble Bobble. The Finnish computer magazine Pelit gave the game a fairly good review. Fasoulas never found a publisher for the game, and it was finally published as a slightly unfinished Christmas edition as a cover disk in the British computer magazine The One.

In the 1990s Fasoulas and Ilari Kuittinen founded Terramarque, known as Housemarque after its fusion with Bloodhouse.

Fasoulas at some point lived in San Francisco without ties to the computer industry.[2]
