History

Kumobius' first game Bean's Quest was developed in the spare time of the founders until 2011 when the first version was released. Featuring only 8 stages to start with it was heralded as a fantastic journey that was over too soon. The team worked hard at developing four more worlds, expanding the stages to 50 in total and culminating in a final release in early 2012. The success of Bean's Quest was the first step for Kumobius to operate as a full time venture for its founders.
