Our FIRST Game: Kubo: A Samurai Quest™

Posted on August 18, 2016

MATCH. COLLECT. BATTLE!

I'm pleased to announce the release of our first game: Kubo: A Samurai Quest.

Match magical charms, discover and collect beautiful origami characters, and battle against the forces of the evil Sisters on your quest through The Far Lands. Based on the animated film Kubo and the Two Strings we worked closely with the incredibly talented team at LAIKA to create a Match-3 puzzle game with a fun collection and accessible battle mechanic that we think audiences of all ages will find entertaining and challenging!

I'm incredibly proud of the teams at Fifth Journey, Playside Studios, and Universal for making this beautiful game together.  Please go see the movie and give our game a try.  We really hope you like it!
