The Balcony 50% off!

Our first game 'The Balcony' is turning one this month and that is why we are having a special sale for 50% off. A lot has happened in just one year and we have learned so many things related to game development. We are currently working on our second game which is going to be a 3D platformer where your mission is to climb a tower all the way up to the top avoiding falling down. The game is very much different from our first game since this time we are focusing more on the graphic side of the game as well as the game mechanics. Many have said that 'The Balcony' was too challenging so our new game will have four levels of difficulty from easy to insane. That way everyone will have a chance to enjoy the game no matter how great gamer you are. Thank you for your support so far. If you have any questions we are here to answer them! Here is a gameplay video of our game 'The Balcony' from Play Pals. If you are interested in the game here is the link to the store page.

The Balcony now on Steam!

After having The Balcony listed on itch.io, we worked hard to gain access to the Steam market. This is the day our first game was set available on Steam. To celebrate this pleasant event, we are hosting a 20% discount for the first week. The Steam version of The Balcony will be a more enjoyable gaming experience as we have patched several bugs and changed the appearance of some levels. These changes make the game more user friendly. We also translated the game to 12 languages, which are German, Russian, simplified Chinese, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Estonian. The achievement system was also replaced with Steam achievements. The game is also deployed for Linux OS. We received countless requests for The Balcony VR. As we have gained more experience in the game development industry and creating VR content, we are seriously thinking about creating The Balcony VR game somewhere in the near future. We might publish a couple of regular (but unique) PC games before doing that though. Thank you all for supporting us on our journey to Steam, we really appreciate it!   Visit the Balcony on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/816210/The_Balcony/

Once again we are celebrating Christmas, the time of sharing and giving. We know the Christmas season is very fond to us all. We have set up a sale to celebrate this time of joy with a specific goal. The goal amount covers the costs of upgrading our company up to the level required by Steam. Thus, we would be eligible to submit our games (including The Balcony) on Steam. Thank you for contributing. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Store link: https://holotna.itch.io/the-balcony

The Balcony has now been released!

This is what we, the team of Holotna, have waited to be able to say: The Balcony is now available! I hope you are as excited as we are. For those who are not aware of our first game: The Balcony is a very satisfying and addicting physics based game where you have the upper hand against bad guys. Have you ever wanted to throw a television out of a building? Now is your time to experience that! With over a hundred objects to throw and break, you will not get bored. Even if you miss your target, you get satisfaction from the dynamic destruction of the objects. And when you do hit the target, you can not get enough of it! Watching a vehicle get destroyed or an enemy get crushed by a piano gives huge pleasure and is something you will definitely experience whilst playing The Balcony. Even our own developers are more excited to play the game than ever. To find more information about The Balcony, do not hesitate to view the product page.

The Balcony arcade mode updates

Protecting yourself from flesh hunting zombies can be hard. In order for you to stay alive, you will need more than a water bottle, something bigger. Luckily there is a possibility to call in an air strike to aid you. Flaming napalm bombs, small bombs and gigantic nukes are great ways to deal with hordes of zombies but something as good as them comes with a high price. Remain patient and tactical to reserve enough coins to take an advantage of this new feature. In addition to the air strikes, we implemented supply drops. They come in two sizes, small and large, and contain neat explosives to throw. Not only did we implement explosives but also changed the way the yard and the zombies look like. Players will now feel the apocalyptic feel of the arcade mode. Zombies have more detail now as they are wearing ripped clothes, have eyes and produce zombie noises as they walk, attack and die. The objects of the scene have overgrown grass around them and image effects were added to create more darker scenery. https://i.imgur.com/usV4Szi.gifv   To stay up to date with the latest updates and news, please visit our website: http://www.holotna.com/thebalcony/
