New Seattle Scenario! Weeklong Sale!

Hey, Mayors! We've have a really cool update this week alongside a juicy 90% discount.

If you've always wanted to visit the cloudiest and most supersonic city in the USA, now it's time to get your copy of BalanCity and try the new Seattle Scenario! Build the Space Needle and Columbia Center among other contemporary landmarks such as the Eagle statue and the 60s Monorail System.



If you lose, maybe you could start your own garage band and grunge about it!

New Scenario - Shanghai! (plus pigeons) - SUMMER SALE!

Hey there BalanCity fans and players!

It's been a while since I the last update but here comes a very solicited scenario: Shanghai, China!


Lot's of supertall skyscrapers for you to build and try to balance in these uneven platforms!

Also you must beware of building too many Coal Power Plants, as smog will obscure your view! Time to plan on green energy (sorry Don).



In other news, a plague of pigeons seems to have arrived to BalanCity, so please ignore the pesky birds as you build.

Last but not least, the game is 90% off this Steam Summer Sale! So it's your chance to get your BalanCity today (or get it as a gift for that special someone!).

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.


Mobile version will be released mid 2017.
