Description

We're an indie game development studio born as result of a common passion for game development. Our goal is to unite immersion and fun, combining gameplay, art and audio at its maximum level.

History

Early history

The Balance Inc was founded in 2011 after part of the initial team graduated from university. Most of them had previously worked in game development and then inevitably got together to keep doing it for a living. The first game under the company's name was Goat'em Up, their first attempt at releasing something to the market. After 8 months of work, the group was ready to welcome new members and try something bigger.

Posthumous

The next step was Posthumous, a game that had a much bigger scope. After one year, it was far from finished. After some internal conflicts and long lack of income, the project was dropped and personal lives forced some of the members to leave. The company took a step back and decided to follow another route, changing engines and target platform.

Override

Before officially dropping Posthumous, the team spent early 2014 making a couple of prototypes of some random ideas, trying to regain motivation. It was shortly after the Global Game Jam that the next project was finally set. The announcement came a few months before the end of the year, The Balance Inc's latest game was called Override.
