#BalconyTeam, a duo of Hungarian #developers ventured into the unknown in 2013 when they kicked off a KickStarter campaign to finance their vision for an old-school classic RPG. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign praised by press and supporters, Balrum has come to fruition and already launched for Linux, Mac and Windows PC via STEAM. Offering a great storyline, classic RPG #gameplay and turn-based tactical combat, your task is to join an adventurous young man on his epic quest to uncover the mysteries of Darkwood.

Terrible things are happening in the woods, and the rumors of dark terrible secrets turn to reality. Your thirst for freedom, adventure and exploration challenges you to venture out in a chaotic world on a mission to uncover the truth.
