Freedom Planet is a Sonic inspired action platformer developed by indie game studio, GalaxyTrail Games. A demo for Freedom Planet was initially posted on GalaxyTrail's website in 2012 as a proof of concept and it was later Kickstarted in 2013 where it raised more than $25,000. The title was released onto various online platforms, including Steam and the Humble Store, a year later on July 21, 2014.
Despite the influence, the game is quite story heavy with some cutscenes lasting for several minutes, the game includes an optional mode that allows players to go through the game without any of the story bits. All the character's lines have voice acting.
