We’ll be working on a review for Find The Balance on Nintendo Switch, so I got in touch with Wastelands Interactive to talk about the game’s development for Nintendo’s hybrid console. Come check it out!
PS4Blog: Good afternoon! Thank you for taking the time to do this interview. Could you please help us get started by telling our readers a bit about yourself and your work?
My name is Zuzanna Lepianka, and I’m a designer in Wastelands Interactive. I had a pleasure to work on the edition of Find The Balance for the Nintendo Switch. My task was to port the mobile version of Find the Balance so it could meet the expectations of Nintendo Switch players.
PS4B: Find The Balance is now out on Nintendo Switch. How would you describe the game to someone who’s never heard about it?
I would describe it as a game worth buying! 🙂
It’s an addicting puzzle game, based on physics and balancing with multiple ways to play it – four single-player and three multiplayer modes. Find The Balance is a great game to play at all times, even when you have only a few minutes to spare – you can finish a level or two in Classic or Stars modes in around 5 minutes! If you want to relax for a bit, I would recommend playing Endless mode in which you can build endless towers – it has this great “taking my mind off things” effect. You can also play Find the Balance with a friend, or use it to solve an argument (for which I recommend the Adding Blocks mode!).
PS4B: How long did it take to develop the game for it’s Nintendo Switch release? Where there any particular hurdles or challenges you had to overcome?
It took us around three months to develop Find the Balance for Nintendo Switch.
Now that I’m thinking about it, there were none. Of course, in game development, there are always the everyday hurdles you have to overcome, but with this project, we knew from the start exactly what Find The Balance Switch Edition should be.
PS4B: Now that Find The Balance is out, are you working on any other games you might be bringing to the Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4?
We just released Hardway Party on Nintendo Switch in the Americas, and it’s also coming to Europe on October 4th. As far as PlayStation 4 is concerned, we’ve got two titles coming out in the near future – Cooking Simulator and Her Majesty’s Ship.
PS4B: And that’s all the time we have for today. Would you like to add anything else before we go?
First of all, thank you for your interest in Find the Balance!
I would also like to thank the creators of Find the Balance mobile – Digital Melody, especially Radek who’s the best person to make video games with.
