Balan Wonderworld is a whimsical 3D platformer centered around the mysterious Balan theater. Led by the titular maestro Balan, the stars of the show Emma and Leo utilize special abilities from over 80 different costumes as they adventure in the bizarre land of Wonderworld filled with colorful inhabitants, tricks, and traps.
The game supports two-player couch co-op, allowing players to cooperate as Leo and Emma and combine the abilities of different costumes to open new paths through Wonderworld.
All first-print physical copies of Balan Wonderworld will include a bonus Balan Theater Collectors Show Ticket inside the game box, while supplies last:
