About Balam and the Spirit Within
“Balam and the Spirit Within” is an action-adventure video game inspired by Mayan culture (Balam means “jaguar” in Mayan). Balam, the protagonist, is a young Mayan mute girl who embarks on a dangerous journey to prove that she is destined to be a great warrior. “Balam and the Spirit Within” relies on simple game mechanics and visual storytelling to immerse the player in a fun, yet heartwarming experience. Through Balam’s story we hope to share this message: To have a voice isn’t necessarily about speaking or being the loudest in the room; rather it’s your actions that define who you are and what good you bring to the world.
