Resident Block Update

Dear players,

I have updated the resident block sprite so that it will show it's current population and quality of life level.

If a block population is below 9, or if it's not powered or without jobs, smog stains will appear.

If population is between 9 and 10, the block will show clean, as it always did.

And if the population is over 10, nice little plants will appear on the balconies meaning that block can upgrade to a Mega Block.




I also increased the trees effect, so that you won't need so many of them for blocks to rise over 10 residents.

Finally, a quick fix on "Power to the people" mission, now you will not lose if a power plant falls off the screen.


Hope you enjoy these changes!

Have fun!

Fernando

Reviews

“I don’t really know why BalanCity exists, but I’m glad it does. I mean, look at this. It’s goofy as hell.”
Kotaku

“If anything, BalanCity‘s goofy premise only moves videogames closer to the wilder side of actual architectural efforts and considerations.”
Kill Screen

“Finally, a city building game where utter failure is completely justified”
PC Gamer

About This Game

BalanCity is a city building / balance physics game. It's a mixture between old school SimCity and Jenga. You must build the tallest towering city over a balancing platform while keeping your citizens happy.

You can build residences, offices, power plants, train stations, airports, landmarks and more.

Beware of disasters, as your city will eventually face doom in the form of fires, earthquakes, meteor strikes, UFO attacks, monsters and more!

Will your city survive the test of balance? See it for yourself!

Game modes:

  • Free Build: A sandbox where your only limit is gravity.
  • Missions: Levels that have a goal to achieve and limited resources.
  • Scenarios: Based on real life cities, you must build all the landmarks before the city collapses.

BalanCity will be released in August 2016 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Mobile version will be released by the end of 2016, early 2017.
