'Bang-On Balls: Chronicles' Developer Gets Tencent Investment

by Rainier on Jan. 25, 2022 @ 7:00 a.m. PST

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is an action-packed, ball-banging, level-wrecking, history-bending 3D platformer.

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles rolls onto the stage! A 3D platformer inspired by some of the best games of the genre including some Italian plumbers, a blue hedgehog, or a bear with a bird on his backpack! It’s a game where you become a reckless hero, customize your ballsy character, and play by yourself or in 4 players co-op with friends through various (slightly inaccurate) historically themed levels. Are we gonna start with the Viking era? Sure, let's loot some treasure!

But the ball doesn’t stop rolling here! Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is gonna be updated on a regular basis, adding a new value to the game with new features, skins, maps, and many more! Where do we go next? Feudal Japan? はい、もちろん。Race to Space? Поехали! Fire up the rocket boosters! Wild West cowballs? Buckle up, partner!

Some of the ball-banging features include vast open levels full of challenges to complete, treasures to unlock, epic destruction, and plenty of weapons, shields, and other fun items that not only let you customize your character but also gives you an edge both in combat and exploration! Extremely fun and intuitive ball-dashing and ball-smashing gameplay mechanics, and a very silly sense of humour round-up for an all-around entertainment for you and your friends!

Damien Monnier and Jose Teixeira, co-founders of Exit Plan Studios,  announced that Tencent Holdings has joined an investment round backing the studio and its upcoming title, Bang-On Balls: Chronicles. 

“Naturally, Tencent is not just an investor. It has extensive know-how in games that can help a small indie game developer like us with everything from testing to localization or even publishing. This was an opportunity that we could not pass up and we were genuinely very impressed they noticed us among all the indie developers out there,” said Monnier, who is also Exit Plan’s design director.

Exit Plan’s successful third funding round also includes SISU Game Ventures, Smok VC, One Two Play, and Venture Inc.Teixeira noted the latest investment round offers the studio financial stability over the coming several years. 

“With our Exit Plan team still growing, it’s great to have the peace of mind that we have the necessary funds to be able to complete Bang-On Balls: Chronicles and start planning our next title. There is also the possibility that Tencent can help us reach key Asian markets, which is one of our goals.”

Key Features:

  • Glorious 3D Ball-Banging platforming action as you become a reckless hero in a series of (slightly inaccurate) historical-based events!
  • Vast open stages to explore, each set in a different time period, with fun items and weapons to collect to give you an edge during combat...or just to destroy your environment!
  • Pick your own country, customize your character, and play with incredible next-gen, state-of-the-art, highly advanced… uhhmm… balls.
  • Grow, shrink, smash, bash down the environment, the world is your destructible playground!
  • Beautifully stylized graphics. Balls were never so shiny before!
  • Stand out with your look in up to 4 ball-friends multiplayer, while helping out each other complete unique challenges.
  • Loosely inspired by a worldwide phenomenon called memes. Are you familiar with the concept? We love it.
  • It teaches history. Well, kinda… Not really… But it has historical levels!

Currently available on Steam Early Access, Bang-On-Balls: Chronicles will be coming to Xbox One and Series X|S later this year.
