GDC 2018: An Updated Look at ‘Pocket Quest’ from ‘Phoenix II’ Developer Firi Games

The dynamic duo that is Firi Games is most well-known for their excellent shoot ’em up games Phoenix HD (Free) and Phoenix II (Free), but they’ve actually had another ambitious project in the works for quite a long time. It’s called Pocket Quest and you may remember our own Shaun Musgrave checking it out during the Tokyo Game Show last year. Well quite a bit has changed since then, most notably a change from being a landscape-oriented game to a portrait-oriented one to facilitate one-handed play on the iPhone. Firi was hesitant to show off Pocket Quest here at GDC 2018 since we’ve already seen it in the past and in reality it’s still quite a ways off, but I figure those who have had this on their radar will appreciate an updated look at the game and for anyone who missed it before then this is an opportunity to place it on their own radar. So without further ado check out the latest look at Pocket Quest and we’ll continue keeping an eye on this one and will post more about it as its development continues.
