Introducing Cosplay Café! • A Cafe for Adult Cosplayers with No Shame

Content Warning:
Cosplay Café contains content that is not appropriate for all ages and is not suggested for viewing at work. While the game contains no explicit imagery, it still contains writing that could be considered explicit and suggestive imagery.


Come and relax with a whipped and steamy coffee! In a city where adult entertainment is the new best thing, the Whipped and Steamy Café is the best fun for all cosplayers with a wild and adventurous side! No shirts, no shoes, no shame and only the best service!

But this café needs an extra pair of hands to stay steamy. Fortunately, our brand new hire Caffie just got the job! With a stoic demeanor and an utter lack of interest on her duties, she’ll have to manage the plans and decorations of the everyday, and meet up with the clientele. And, who knows? Maybe even make some unlikely friends…


Happy Valentines Day! Our team at Whales And Games is honored to reveal Cosplay Café, our mostly-suggestive out-of-our-minds management and dating-sim crossover being developed for this month’s Strawberry Jam 3!

Join Caffie, the brand new-hire turned manager at the Whipped and Steamy Café, a cosplay centric café set on a city where adult entertainment has become the main-stream, and you can imagine just how much people are all over that stuff!

Likewise to other Whales And Games games, we follow our design of picking on two genres, simplifying them and introducing them a twist! In Cosplay Café you’ll have to go through three different phases as you manage your café to incredulous profits (especially when there’s crippling debt right behind you)!


Start the day by Managing your café and picking the coffee, snack and decorations for the day. The choices you make you will cater to different cosplayer groups (including Vanilla, Exotic and Fantasy), increasing their interest to come to the café, as well as how much they’ll pay and tip you for your products, which profits you can turn to unlock even more products!

However, stick to the same choices for too long, and you will see your target audience losing interest for visiting the café! It’s up to you to assure you keep your café a novel place!

Once you’ve made your management choices, it’s time to put it to the test and see how they translate to Sales! Different cosplayers will visit you and show you just how well you performed with the sales catered to that group!

Check your growth compared to the previous day and see where you’ve improved/worsened. Take those lessons, and prepare for the next day!

Depending on the visiting chances of the different groups, at the end of each day you’ll get the opportunity to meet up with a Special Customer from one of those groups. The characters that appear have different chances of showing up, meaning that, if your café catters more towards the Exotic group, the higher the chances of you meeting a character from them!

Talk with these Special Customers and increase your relationship with them to learn more about their cosplays, their origin stories and about them as people. Max up your relationship with them and you might even get the chance to see more of them, if you know what we mean. 😉


We’re still mid-way there and there’s still a lot of work to be done until we are done with the game and ready to release it for everyone to get their hands on at the end of the month! Expect frequent news of it through our social media channels at Facebook and Twitter, and, of course, we made a special channel over on our Discord server just to talk about this game! We hope to see you there! 🐳


Q&A because you probably have a lot of questions?

But Why?

As left-field as it seems, we have actually been wanting to do Cosplay Café for a long while, and Strawberry Jam 3 proved to be the perfect time slot for it. The shock-value nature of the project’s setting, mixed in with the character and character development driven aspect of the game made us sure that this is one game we wanted to make.

Ultimately for us, Whales And Games is about memorable experiences, games and characters, rather than being about ‘being family friendliness’. Our goal is to make you expect the unexpected from us, and we think this project fills in that nature.

What happens after Strawberry Jam?

Cosplay Café is one project that we have tons of ideas for and which we wish to expand! Depending on how it performs on its release and how much people are interested on it, we will more than willing to continue developing it! If you’re already interested on it just from this announcement pitch, let us know! 🤗

That’s cool, but what about Colossorama 1.3?

Colossorama’s Update is taking a bit more than expected, and we’ve been working on it since October non-stop. The game is now on its last 10%, with only a few of the final features we want to include missing from being added, but at the same time, we felt like we needed a break from its development. We will resume it immediately after the jam ends, and The Champions Update will release in March.

Whow! Where did this blog come from?

That’s one more surprise for today! In addition to Cosplay Café’s announcement, we have also decided to release a first draft of the new full website we’ve had in our minds for a while, so we can finally have a blog where we can talk about bigger posts without having our content spread across multiple sites (like Itch.io, Ludum Dare, etc.)

For now. the homepage is just a port of the old mini-site frontpage, but this website will grow over time to accommodate to new content (like a proper about and games page). We have also imported our previous Ludum Dare website posts, meaning you have more than 24 development insights in case you want to strength up your game development trivia and knowledge!

Waggy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! 2018 has come and gone, and we’re ready to make 2019 the waggy-ist year of Whales And Games yet! You might have seen some stuff coming from us last year, but we got a whole sea of stuff planned ahead for you! Prepare for a whale of a time! ??

Whales And Games Status Report • November 2018

It’s been two months since we last wrote a status update regarding what we’ve been working on here at Whales And Games! To make sure everyone is always up to date with the last happenings, we’ll be posting more of these regularly. That being said, here’s what happened in the last few months, and here’s what’s coming next! ✅

  • We have announced Colossorama’s 1.3 Update entitled The Champions Update and have been working on it daily. The update already adds double the number of weapons the last update did, several new characters and much needed gameplay tweaks. No release date as of yet. Haven’t caught on with the update’s announcement yet? Here is is!
  • Our second planned major update is still in the works, and its base foundations have already been developed! However, most of the attention has been shifted to Colossorama to allow it to grow larger.
  • The same is the case with Shipyard, our set of backend tools. We’ve been working on it as Colossorama shapes up and have been improving its overall underlying structure.
  • We have returned to actively posting in our Social Media profiles, and have been posting new content Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays! If you haven’t followed us on other networks yet, you can follow us on Twitter and on Facebook.
  • We have started hosting Server Events on our Discord server, including events where the community plays online games together (Gaming Night Clubs), our very own Dungeons and Dragons campaign (Dungeons and Dragorbs) and one for collective brainstorming regarding the Whaleverse (Freeform WAG).  
  • Speaking about Discord, we have also gotten Discord Verified! This means we get to show-off a sexy checkmark next to our server name!
  • Last but not least, we will be participating in the upcoming Ludum Dare 43 from Dec 1st to Dec 3rd! We will be developing a new game jam project during this time to keep you holding you tight until the Colossorama update comes out! Please look forward to it!
  • And as you might have guessed it, yes, we’re still swimming in a sea-of-fun!  ?

This new status report also carries on various of the points of the previous one, like continuing to establish a reliable brand and team. For this upcoming Ludum Dare, five of our six team members will be participating, making it our largest team for a game jam yet! If you’d like to accompany development as it happens, make sure to join our Discord server! ⏳?
