Duel for your favourite team in the Art Fight Duel!

The imagination of plenty of artists is unleashed in card form! Sugar or Spice, duel for your favourite Art Fight 2020 team in Art Fight Duel! ⚔️

Made as an homage to Art Fight, an event that pits artists into two teams to draw characters from each other, this game features 24 original creations from different artists that participated in 2020’s event! Characters of each team, Team Sugar or Team Spice, are ready to duke it out!

Art Fight Duel has been a special project of ours in development since the beginning of August. We had a pre-release version out for a while, but this is the definitive version for this year, featuring audio, polished gameplay and all the quality of life quirks you’d expect from a game of ours! ✨

You can play the game in all desktop, web and mobile versions on itch.io! We’ve also made the character and item cards and sprite sheets showcasing all of the different characters in the game available in their own dedicated page!

You can are feel free to talk about your combos, features you’d like to see and more on the newly opened #art-fight-duel in our Discord Server!

It’s been incredibly pleasant to be releasing a new jam-project after so long and a great privilege being able to feature inspiring character designs from so many artists! If we participate next year again, we’ll totally add even more content, characters and maybe even features, but it’s still too early to tell!

For now, we hope you enjoy Art Fight Duel, and gear up as we move towards Bunny Splash Casino and a return to even more jam games in the future! You can also look forward to a post-mortem about the event and the game soon as well! 👏


Cosplay Café Jam Results are here and they’re amazing!

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the footnotes of Cosplay Café, our recently released adult-themed game, the project was developed under the harsh time-frame of a month, as the game was created and developed as an entry for Strawberry Jam 3, a one-month long game jam specifically dedicated to creating adult and adult-themed games.

Since the game released two weeks ago, the game has been under judgement together with 36 other entries, all of different genres and thematics, by other jam participants. While it’s certainly a lower number of entries and participants compared to our usual Ludum Dare participation (which normally stack up to a total of 2000+ entries) it’s still a very close-knit community and the feedback and ratings we get from it are just as important!

Well, the judging phase is over, and we couldn’t be prouder of our final results!

Not only did we manage to grab the first-place Overall. We also obtained the first place in four other very important categories including Play, Harmony, Sound and Aesthetics! We’re also really proud of the third-place in Narrative and would have actually been worried if we had beaten a certain very unnerving and excellent poem.

And yes, we got a bit lower in certain other jam-gimmick specific categories like Stealth (don’t play this game with your parents in the room) and Horny (as much as Cosplay Café is an adult themed game, it’s still nowhere as exotic as some of the games around of the jam), but overall, they’re still pretty much fantastic results!

These results are heart-warming and validating to us, and we’re really glad we’ve gone through this jam experience. Thank you all for the fantastic support these past weeks, especially to all of the community members over at the Whales And Games server, the extensive feedback from our play-testers, and of course, the Strawberry Jam 3 community that has rated and played our game!

Now that its a real game, we’re extremely excited to continue expanding on it, adding new scenes, characters, mechanics and more! We still have a few things to hammer out with WAG before we get into development, but we’re really excited to continue adding new stuff to it and refining its adult-scented thematic.

If you have ideas for new content or scenes that you’d like to see, we’d really love to see your ideas and suggestions over at our Discord server! We’re always asking for suggestions there, and would love to know where you’d love to see this project headed to next! Cheers! 🐳

We’ve worked for a month during Strawberry Jam 3 on one of our dream games Cosplay Café, a light business simulator that doubles as a visual novel mixed in with a good dose of adult parody. You can play it right now on itch.io! Obviously NSFW. For adults only! 🔞

We’ve got Super Sellout results, and our 2019 road ain’t dark!

Results time! Ludum Dare 43 has come and gone, festivities are over, and it’s time to consider just how did-we-doodly-do! Needless to say, our team at Whales And Games is once again very proud of the results that we have obtained from Super Sellout, our runner where you sacrifice your integrity for sponsor money! Making this the third time that we’ve have achieved a game in the 100-Overall, here are our results!

Rumours say that when we saw the 5th place slapped on the rankings, a collective part of our team screamed on the inside right in the middle of new year celebrations. To get 5th with a 4.6 in Graphics is a really outstanding surprise and one that completely caught-us off left-field. Getting 39th in Audio and 44th in Humor is also heart-warming and validating for each correspondent team member.

However, not all is perfect, and clearly aware that there were both Innovation and Fun problems on our game as we released it, and the feedback and ratings we have received definitely tell us that there’s still stuff we got to tweak and polish further.

Like last time, we’re glad that we were able to experience so many new games and everyone’s creative vision. Although last time we only sneaked in Sebastian’s game into a fanart of ours but this time around we not only snuck theirs from Dark Roads, but also tagged in Dog Dog Dungeon by Bubble Wand GamesPlease Player by Noa Calice and Sacrificio Inc. by Reality Blind, as well as ourselves into a single four-seat car!

This is not to say that there weren’t more fantastic entries, much per contrary as proven by the likes of Serial Dater from ColeSlaughter and company, Master Key from Jeremy RyanMedic! by Eryph and Rogues Like Beer by Nick Zangus between many others! Unfortunately, they didn’t fit into the car this time, but who knows in the future?

Like always, this wouldn’t be possible without the effort of all of our team. If you’ve read our post-mortem, you might already know that the goal we set out for this jam was to test our synergy as a team. While we will be having to adapt a better labour structure in the future and will have to tone down on desk fisting, we’d still like to thank our team, and, completely agnostic to who was chosen to make this post, thank Moski for his incredible work with the graphics that gave him the so deserved rank, Zak for joining us again handling the game’s on-the-spot audio, Kroltan for his patience and programming expertise, Jorge for wrapping together the project into a fantastic amalgamate, and last-but-not-least Poncho for his support at always being available to take up a task if it needed to be done. And of course, Robin which unfortunately was unable to join us this time around, but still asked if there was any way he could help around.

Thank you for this great end-of-the-year final and for playing Super Sellout. We look forward to seeing more from everyone in the future! If you’d like to come to chat and discuss your results or ratings, we’ve got a Discord server open 24/7, and, of course, if you’d like to keep up with us for future editions, we also have a Twitter and Facebook pages you can follow!

2019 will be our waggy-iest year yet, and we got a whole sea of fun planned in advance! Cheers! ??
