Floor Kids is an original idea by Montreal-based animator and former bboy JonJon. The Floor Kids first appeared in a series of short animated films produced in 2007-2008, featuring original music by Kid Koala, which were shown online and were incorporated in numerous Kid Koala's live concerts. In 2014, JonJon and Kid Koala joined together with Envision and Hololabs to create a video game based on the Floor Kids characters and universe. The team set out to develop a unique break dance video game featuring 2D hand-drawn characters and innovative controls that make you feel like you're dancing along with the character, all to the sounds of Kid Koala's awesome beats.
