More About the Project

Wow! What is Quartz Quest?

At its heart Quartz Quest is a story of two best friends having fun and seeking grand adventure while growing into better versions of themselves. As the series progresses Lyra and Snobelly will be pushed to their limits, as they discover a long forgotten energy source hidden deep under their world, known simply as Quartz Energy. Hidden away for uncountable years, Lyra and Snobelly travel the world investigating strange places and creatures that all seem to share a connection to the Quartz Energy in some way.Quartz Quest as a concept was created nearly a decade ago while creator AL was in middle school. The concept and characters have changed drastically in the time since but the dream to bring this idea to life through animation has always remained at the forefront of his mind. Now finally Snobelly and Lyra get to start their adventures. The first two episodes of Quartz Quest have been released and a 3rd episode is in the middle of production.Quartz Quest is planned to be a continuous series with episodes releasing as they finish. There is currently a full plan for a “first season” of the series. There currently is no estimated timeframe for these future episodes due to the nature of animation production. This project is self funded, and donations and support from viewers help to allow AL to continue steady production on the episodes.
