Kubo: A Samurai Quest Reviews (Updated!)

Posted on October 20, 2016

We've received some wonderful reviews for our first game Kubo: A Samurai Quest while our app store ratings have been huge.  We're so appreciative of all your support and so happy you like our little game.

"Kubo: A Samurai Quest is an immersive Match 3 puzzle game with a lovely soundtrack. I can honestly say Kubo: A Samurai Quest is one of the best Match 3 puzzle games I've played (and I've played a lot).  It has beautiful graphics, a nice story line and inspiring music" - Android Guys

 


"The game looks like it's made from origami. The LAIKA style and creature battles make this match 3 puzzle game an addicting and welcome change of pace for licensed games. Fifth Journey Limited has provided some hope for licensed games. I look forward to their next release. 8/10" - GameSkinny

 

"With its variety of match-three gameplay types folded together like an origami samurai, this gorgeous puzzler enthralls us just like the movie that inspired it. Pulling off a massive chain-reaction combo or vanquishing an enemy with our team of paper companions is endlessly satisfying. We even find ourselves cranking up the music, just to head-bob along to Kubo's fast-fingered shamisen stylings." - Apple App Store Editor

 

 

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.

Eric Tan and Craig Derrick at LAIKA

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!
