Status: Partially Found

Monkey Quest was a fantasy/MMO game developed by Behaviour Interactive and launched by Nickelodeon on March 2011[1] and closed on September 26th, 2014.

Premise and Gameplay

The premise was that the player plays as a monkey traveling through the land of Ook, interacting with other players, completing quests, battling monsters, and discovering secrets about the legendary Monkey King.

Shutdown and Availability

The game's servers were shut down on September 26th, 2014, so that Nick could focus on their mobile games.[2] The launcher used to still be available for download for a while after the shut down, but it was unable to get the patch info and attempting to log in would have caused it to say the username and password is invalid.

Partial assets from the game have been found that aren't public, and the game can be played but with some things still missing. The state of the game now is nowhere near its original state.

In November of 2017, LMW Discord user Smoke uploaded two MEGA files of assets from Monkey Quest. One of the MEGA files includes graphical assets, sound assets, etc, while the second of the MEGA files contains cached unity assets from the game.

Fans of the game have been working to create a "reborn" version of the game, titled "Monkey Quest Reborn".[3]
