Introducing Whales And Games Discord Server Events! Starting next week, on October 20th, we’ll be hosting weekly events in our server for a whole ‘nother sea of fun, with activities ranging from playing multiplayer games, Dungeons and Dragons sessions, to brainstorming for the Whales and Games universe, and whatever else that comes up!
Interested in participating in the events? Then join us over there! We have also done a complete revamp and rewrite of our Information and Guidelines, with clearer server guidelines and a new section fully dedicated to events! ?
Next Saturday (October 20th), we will be starting with Gaming Nights Club, getting everyone together for some multiplayer fun!
Like we’ve talked on our last playtesting post, we’ve been working on a third update to Colossorama called ‘The Champions Update’!
This update focus on refining and adding new content to what already exists, introducing new weapons, foes and characters, tighter physics, rebalancing, several visual overhauls, bug fixes and even more weapons! We do have some new features we are working on implementing, including leaderboard support, but we will be talking about those later.
We wanted to give everyone out a small status update of what we’ve and are working on, and what you can expect from Whales And Games going forward, as the team starts being more active again. ✅
We’ve been spending the last few months (including hiatus) in defining goals, vision and team for going forward. We want to start focusing more on iterative and full-of-personality content, while also still putting one-off games out every now and then.
We’ve also developed a set of back-end tools called Shipyard for better build distribution, protection and social integration. These will be released as open-source at a latter date.
We’ve also been refining the Whales And Games branding, setting up standards and guidelines for future content and showcasing our stuff.
We have released a mini-site with all of our currently released games, and have been iterating on it as previous points develop. A full website is still planned to be released at a later point.
We’re currently working on 2 Major Updates to old projects we’ve had in the backlog for a while, with one of them going to be announced really soon! Every other game or project we have previously mentioned and posted about are not in active development, being in hiatus or cancelled.
We’ve begun #playtesting one of these major updates the past week. In case you want to sign-up as well, apply now!
We’re also planning to kick-off Community Events expectably soon at our Discord Server with regular events for community involvement!
Yes, we’re still having a whale of a time! ??
Of course, there’s more stuff we’ve been discussing for long-term support, but these are the short-term things we are working on. Once we reach time to put those in execution, we’ll talk about them then! Remember you can always keep up with us at our community through our Discord Server!
Two years ago, our team created Colossorama. A game with the idea of having multiple weapons, swap them constantly, and adapting to different loadouts. In its original iteration, it barely lived up to that expectation. And, as a result of feedback, it’s been updated twice in the past and becoming a project with plenty of characters, challenges and a weaponpalooza that makes every run unpredictable!
However, and hopefully to wrap it up, we’ve been working on on Colossorama 1.3 entitled The Champions Update. Not only does it reconstruct mechanics and fixes bugs, but is also a major visual and gameplay overhaul, rebalancing, and, of course, weapons, weaponized weapons making it the largest weapon-fest it’s ever been! Over 70 last time we checked. Swords, Axes, Items, Cannonballs, Status effects, Dogs, and more!
Since we want to do out original vision justice, we’re looking for people interested in a #playtesting of sorts, in order to get more feedback before we finish the final product with a few extra surprises on it. You’re more than welcome to participate by filling up this form and joining our Discord Server, so you can tell us all about your experience!
Thanks for all the thrills! We’re looking forward to giving you a far better head slicing experience than ever before! ⚔? Cheers!
