Balzath: Don’t Trust the Signs Announcement Trailer & Pre-Alpha Screens – April 22, 2014

Balzath: Don’t Trust the Signs, the first effort from indie developer Helium Games, is a single-player action-adventure game. It runs the gamut from combat to quiet puzzle-solving.

Meet the Gloupsies. Cute and peaceful creatures they are, living happy and innocent Gloupsie lives on a distant planet. Well, most of the time. Or maybe that’s some of the time…

Meet the demons. It seems they attack the Gloupsies once a month — always on Fridays, no less — and destroy everything. The Gloupsies rebuild — always in the same place, mind you — and the demons destroy. Rebuild, destroy, rebuild, destroy. Over and over.

Doesn’t sound like too much fun…but what to do?

Then one day, an old stranger named Folm shows up. He’s had experience with demon attacks, you see, and tells the Gloupsies that first, they’ll have to relocate their village. Duh.

Then, they’ll have to fight evil with evil. Folm has brought something along that will do the job nicely…

Say hello to Bazalth.

Helium Games plans to release Bazalth: Don’t Trust the Signs late in 2014 on PC, Linux and Mac.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
