Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin is OverClocked ReMix's 40th album release, the first time the crew makes use of a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production. The album is a reinterpretation of the soundtrack of Final Fantasy VI.

Balance and Ruin features 74 tracks, performed, arranged and produced by 74 artists, not counting the orchestra that was hired for some of the recordings.

The original $30,000 goal of the campaign was surpassed with over five times the intended sum. The additional funding allowed the producers to ship additional copies of the previous Final Fantasy project albums, Final Fantasy VII: Voices of the Lifestream, Final Fantasy IV: Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption, and Final Fantasy: Random Encounter as well as to expand the scope of the project and produce a bonus DVD of content. The CDs and DVD were backer rewards for those who pledged at least $50 USD.
