Beasts of Balance

Sensible Object

beastsofbalance.com

Beasts of Balance is a game of strategy and balance in which you build a tower of animals on your table-top, and then help them evolve in a connected digital world.

This is a cooperative game for one to five players, and the aim is to make the most fabulous world you can by strategically nurturing and evolving your creatures and casting skill-based miracles – before your tower collapses. Players take turns to stack a set of beautifully made artefacts into a tower. As they’re placed on the tower, they pop onto the connected screen, where they evolve and grow as they are cared for by the players.

Sensible Object is a London-based game studio that uses connected technology to create new kinds of play that bring people together. The company believes that technology should not divide us, but bring us together to improve quality of life. Sensible Object’s goal is to take everything that is inspiring and entertaining about digital play, and to merge it with a design approach that’s rooted in a practical understanding of home and family life. Games produced by the company, including Beasts of Balance, are unique in that they combine physical, digital and imaginative play like never before.
