Over dit spel

The local multi-player space narwhal fighting game that has rocked the internet is finally ready for its big debut in a fully loaded release!

Flop it out with 1-4 players in a retro, epic narwhal battle in space! The heart-piercing action is furious and unrelenting. STARWHAL will change your life.

Inspired by countless couch-gaming gatherings over the decades, we wanted to bring something competitive, creative, and immediately fun to the table. Our original prototype was conceived and developed in 48 hours with focus entirely on these areas. From that came the phenomenon that is STARWHAL.

STARWHAL is a simulation of dreams in an ocean of the mind.

Features:

  • 4 player local multiplayer mayhem - 90+ costumes, 25 arenas, and 4 game modes to duke it out with friends or AI players.
  • 32 single player Obstacle and Target challenges with leaderboards, ghost replays, and achievements.
  • Successfully made it through Steam Early Access, shaping the game around the feedback from fans around the world.
  • New radical graphic effects!
  • You can be a space narwhal wrapped in a burrito.

What people are saying:

"Starwhal is one of the best multiplayer games of the year, chaotic and intensely competitive"
-IGN

"If Jacques Cousteau were here, he'd sh*t all over the floor."
- Wiley Wiggins on STARWHAL

"Get a friend. Play this NOW. I'm laughing so hard"
- Sean "Day[9]" Plott

"This game is awesome"
- Achievement Hunter

"This large hairless intergalactic aquatic mammal simulator will bring out the 'Ooo!', "Aaa!' and 'So CLOSE!' in everyone"
- Ross Kenry O'Donovan (Distinguished Conductor of the Steam Train)

"Starwhal brings bloodthirsty neon space whales into an entirely new dimension, capturing the spirit of local co-op deathmatches like only a neon space whale can. We couldn't recommend it more."
- Polaris

This is a good one for 4 players on the same big screen. ALL ages had fun with this one, even the young kids!
Simple control scheme yet hilariously difficult to try to control.
Absolutely recommended if you need something for 4-way couch play.

I'm not sure if I'm missing something. I really enjoy games with a simple premise just for the sake of having ridiculous matches, local multiplayer and laughing with your friends. I adore Nidhogg and its' ilk. But this game - what is there to like? Spin, spin, spin, move forward, try not to get your belly touched - that's literally the entire game. Is it kinda funny and pyschedelic? Sure. But that wears off after about 3 matches.

9/11 best game ever. pls volvo make a turnament for this.
Just kidding. But man this game is fun. If you play this with a local friend its so great. I mean you are Narwhals, stabbing each over in the heart. Its the best idea ever. So all in all is the game is a 9/10, because most of the stages are lame.

So, so, so *ridiculously* good multiplayer fun. Grab 4 controllers and be prepared to swear at your friends. Whenever I have friends round for a gaming session, this is always the favourite!

BTW, although the recommended system specs look quite low, you might have trouble playing this with integrated graphics and/or a slowish CPU. The frame rate suffers a bit when there are 4 narwhals on screen at once.

haha memes am i right
fun house/party game if you can scavenge for enough controllers for your friends and animals
ive only played this a little bit and i wished there was a platformer single/co-op campaign type mode
this game feels like they had a wacky idea and kept it wacky, not something many devs can do
oh theres some viral-youtuber stuff for your dolphin incase you really love meme e-celebs

This is one of those games that you get in the humble bundle but you don't think you're ever going to play because it looks like one of those games: you know the ones where its a neat idea but it doesn't work in practice but it sells well anyway because INDIE GAMES but then you play it and you're like alright this is pretty cool but there aren't enough features so you don't play it very often but then your friend is like "hey whats starwhal" and you realize that, on a spiritual level, you don't really know so you go and visit the shaman at your local DMV and ask "what does it mean to be starwhal" and he boots up his PC and is all like "check dis out man" and you start playing it together and you finally see the light so you go home and play it with your friend but he manages to be a master at it in his first game even though you've played it like 6 times already and he rekts you and it makes you mad so you declare yourself the winner and he's all like "u jelly bro" and you are jelly but you can't admit it because you're a bro so you pretend your screen is different but it's not because it's local multiplayer and your friend is all like "whatever man" but it's not 'whatever' to you so you kill him in his sleep.

This game has one of the best (local) multiplayer mode that I've ever played!

There is also a good couple of single player challenges (it is a pity that they are so few)... It'd be nice if you could play the multiplayer levels against AIs opponents.

This piece of art is truly one of the most nicest pieces of art forever. May Starwals, always remain in my bedroom.

I must say... This is great for the first hour or so... maybe two if you reaaaaaaaaaaaally push it. Truly, the only appeal for this game is a party game, a game for when you're drunk, or simply the fact that it has space narwhals.

Gameplay:
Not much to be said... Pretty good, but it all comes down to a great deal of luck. Point your narwhal in the general direction of where you want, maybe pull off a technique that works 60% of the time, hope to hit the heart. Alot of flailing around, alot of stabbing tails, alot of floundering in corners.
Gameplay: 3/10

anything else: Not much to be said. Not worth the price, burns really fast, buy if you are planning to play this once.

I got this game during beta and let me tell you: I can't imagine not having this game in my life.

I have played this at parties with my friends, where it is a smashing hit and a great ice-breaker and I have played it by myself with one hand pretending to be a random CPU player and one hand actually trying. My girlfriend loves the game, and it's hard not to! You can dress your narwhal as anything you could want (like jedi knights, burritos, and more!!), and as far as entertainment goes, this game is second to none.

My one request is that later on online playing be incorporated (for all of us who lack frequent human contact).

Buy it now!

Truly the Citizen Kane of marine-based mammal space battling games.

Really though, this game is great, arcade fun. Hook it up to the TV and you've got a great party game. It draws you into to a frenetic, fast paced battle royale. The simplicity of the game means that anyone can play it, and go from saying "that looks silly, I'll pass" to "OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS AWESOME" in about 4 seconds (and I'm not saying it looks silly).

The additions that they've added are great. Great variety of arenas, hilarious costumes (Jayne's hat!). And they're planning on adding so much more. Game modes. Single player. All sorts of goodies, it's just going to get better and better!

STARWHAL! JUST THE TIP!

Why recommended:

Nice little game with lots of cute Narwahls.
This is a great couch game, as controls and mechanics are easy and you can sometimes win with luck alone, so lesser skilled friends can still enjoy it :)

So if you're looking for a colorful local only (!) multiplayer game for literally breaking your friends hearts, definetly give it a try.

+ Colorful Graphics
+ Easy to learn controls
+ Still a luck component, so lesser skilled players still stand a chance -> MP friendly!
+ Hearts everywhere!

0 Sound is so-so. Quite nice, but way too repetitive. Goes great with my own electronic music library though :)
0 Can't tell about keyboard support, only played it with controller. But guess keyboard might suck as when comparing analog stick to controller DPad.
0 Single player challenge maps somewhat nice with different obsacles and later ones pretty hard. But at least for me still not that entertaining. You might feel differnt, though.

- AI. It's fine for classic mode with basic maps and for a basic training. But they don't really work with some of the game modes and maps containing lava and such.


Don't buy if:
* You neither have friends to play this with locally (only!)...
* ... nor like repeating levels to beat your highscores and collecting medals/achievements-
* You do not like Narwahls.

I'm a little bias but if you are looking for a unique local multiplayer game and a great time with friends I've heard from others that this is an excellent game to have in your library. Give it a try, you might just like its quirky nature.

Upgrade your existence.
