Beasts of Balance
Beasts of Balance is a new kind of game that blends tabletop dexterity and digital strategy with beautiful pieces, custom hardware and super-social gameplay. Players take on the role of slightly irresponsible gods taking turns to add magical Artefacts onto a balancing tower. Every time an Artefact is successfully placed onto the Plinth, it alters the connected digital world on the companion app. The aim is to make the most fabulous world you can, before your tower collapses.
After winning the Technology Award at Indiecade in 2015, Beasts of Balance (or Fabulous Beasts as it was originally called) went on to raise $250K on Kickstarter in February 2016 picking up a host of accolades on the way:
"Completely re-invents the game of balance" L.A. Times
"The work of geniuses" Vice
"Beautifully coherent" Eurogamer
"Wonderfully eccentric" Killscreen
"Beautiful, challenging, infinitely compelling" JR Honeycutt, The Nerd Nighters
