Karma Studios was a small game development team located in the Netherlands. Found in 1998 by Martijn Wenting, the company specializes in games for portable platforms, mainly the Gameboy Color.

The only GBC game that was released by Karma Studios was 2000’s Keep The Balance. Around 8 other games were developed and previewed for the system, but were cancelled likely due to financial problems.

3 more games that were still in very early production were also previewed and likely never had the coding started on them; Global Kumite, Tube and Smashing Tennis was their working titles according to IGN.


No ROMs or prototypes of any of the planned games are known to exist. Graphical assets previewed by Karma Studio’s defunct website and IGN have been uncovered, as well as the soundtracks to 5 of the 11 games], composed by musician Faried Verheul.
