The Polyphonic Spree: The Quest for the Rest is a very short free graphical adventure developed and published by Amanita Design as a browser game in 2004-05-26. The game was designed to promote the band The Polyphonic Spree's 2004 album, Together We're Heavy and contains four of the album's songs. It was written in Flash.

In the game, you're trying to get three members of the band safely across a few scenes by solving environmental puzzles. In each scene, a different song from Together We're Heavy is played.


Own?No. The game was never sold.
FinishedLate 2000s.

A friend of mine told me about this game in the late 2000s. I played through this one after only a few minutes, however, I played the game without any audio, so I kind of missed a big point of the game. I'm not sure if I played this first or Samorost, but I played them both back-to-back.

  • The backgrounds are meticulous and beautiful. It's clear a lot of time was spent in a photo editor.
  • The music is quite nice as well. It doesn't necessarily fit the game's settings, but it's a nice backdrop.


  • Nothing.


  • With only three scenes, the game is far too short. Even someone unskilled in puzzle games would solve it in a couple minutes. Just as you're beginning to understand the game, it ends.
