Planet Moon Studios was a game development studio based in San Francisco, California founded by ex-Shiny Entertainment developers Nick Bruty (President) and Bob Stevenson (CEO) in 1997. The name of the company is said to be invented by co-founder Scott Guest, who described the founding of the studio as a moment of intense overwhelming joy as "being on the planet "Moon"."

Planet Moon developed the games Giants: Citizen Kabuto (Interplay, 2000), Armed and Dangerous (LucasArts, 2003) and Infected (Majesco Games, 2005). The games are generally critically acclaimed for both game-play and graphics, and are often lauded for their humor in various reviews.

In January 2011, Bigpoint Games acquired the Planet Moon Studios staff in San Francisco, California, but did not acquire the company, its intellectual properties, or its other assets. Shortly thereafter, Planet Moon Studios closed its doors.
