F A Q

What does Xibalba mean?
In Mayan mythology, Xibalba (also spelled Xibalbá or Xibalbay) means underworld ruled by Mayan spirits of disease and death. It is roughly translated as “place of fear”. Cool, huh?

How do you pronounce Xibalba?
It’s pronounced Shi-BAHL-bah.

Why did you choose the name Xibalba?
When we started the company our first game was a prototype of the Mayan ball game. During our research about the subject we ran into an ancient Mayan book called “Popol Vuh” this book describes Xibalba as a court below the surface of the Earth associated with death and with twelve Gods or powerful rulers known as the Lords of Xibalba.

What do you play more at Xibalba, PC or console games?
During our breaks at the office, there is some serious PC multiplayer action, but after work consoles take most of our time.
