History

Planet Quest takes inspiration and homage to the classic and best rhythm games where the music truly controls the gameplay,games such as Rhythm Heaven and PattaPon.The cute style takes influence from the the crazy feel of Katamari, Adventure Time and Futurama. The game began development in July of 2014, with the intention to create a fun and addictive simple to play Rhythm Game for mobile. We used past custom in house tools (Stork Vector engine) that gives the game a distinctive look and allows it to scale perfectly on any device, and also created a new music tracker system with real-time audio effects, affectionately called “SongBird”, allowing us to play the music sample by sample, meaning zero lag and giving the possibility for an unlimited amount of music.
