History

The idea to make a gorilla action game was already scribbled by FDG in early 2011. When developer studio Gamaga came to us pitching some concepts we offered them to create Banana Kong with us. It soon turned out to be the perfect team to realize the idea and turn it into an exciting and fun endless runner with many cool features. Banana Kong was the first in its genre to seamlessly let the player switch areas by dashing through cave entrances and climb up into the treetop. An underwater area was added later in an update. The fun aspect of the characters in the game was influenced by the Donkey Kong Country series (Nintendo)
