Ziggurat Reveals Puzzle-Platformer Ballance Release Date as A Boy and His Blob Retro Collection Launches on PC
Calling all old-school aficionados, today Ziggurat Interactive, publisher of multiplatform retro and modern games, revisits their Retro First Friday initiative with two exciting reveals: the release of A Boy and His Blob™ Retro Collection on PC and the January 5th release date announcement of Ballance! Between a blob-tastic adventure across Blobolonia and a serious case of nostalgia and lost marbles, Ziggurat’s geared up to round 2023 off with a bang and bring in the new year with stability, poise, and equilibrium!
Physics Puzzle Platformer Ballance Receives a Launch Date
Fondly remembered as one of PC gaming’s most popular early 3D puzzle platformers, Ballance, initially published by Atari®, is a wildly addictive title that takes the phrase “losing your marbles” literally! Launching on PC via Steam and GOG on January 5, 2024, Ballance’s 12 courses contain various challenges, from navigating perilous pathways to impeding obstacles that make your marble go off track or send it plummeting into a bottomless pit.
With three different marble materials to choose from, you’ll need to think outside of the orb and employ various strategies to solve the brain-bending puzzles, all while being careful to steer clear of dangers like narrow passages, sloped surfaces, path-blocking obstacles, and of course the ever-present threat of gravity that could send your marbles into trouble.
Oh, and all of this must be accomplished before the time runs out! So, do you have what it takes to become a marble master?
A Boy and His Blob™ Retro Collection Now Available on PC
A Boy and His Blob™ Retro Collection brings two classic NES and Game Boy games to modern gaming consoles, featuring their US and Japanese versions.

The Retro Collection includes additional features like visual enhancements, the ability to save progress, and in-game achievements for Steam and GOG. These classic puzzle platformers will challenge your skills with unique gameplay mechanics, enhancing the nostalgic fun of their classic platforming gameplay.
