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

What a glorious age we live in, when games like this exist. If you like playing local multiplayer games with friends (Nidhogg, Gang Beasts, Worms, Towerfall), this is a must. LOLs guaranteed.

"Starwhal" is one of the best couch co-op games ever. Not just because it involves narwhals, 80's music, or neon lights. It is one of the best because it is ludicrously simple to pick up. "A" for accelerate, "X" for taunt, and obviously stick to move. It is a great party game because of its simplicity and sheer hilarity. So go ahead, plug in the Xbox 360 controllers, gather round and...

As someone who has only played the single player challenge modes (I have no friends, so no local co-op), this game is amazing. The challenges are hard enough that they provide entertainment and a challenge, and trying to get whateverthemedalpastgoldis will provide many more hours, yet the game is easy enough that a n00b like me was able to complete all the challenges (medaled, mostly bronze) in just over an hour. Most people are here for the co-op, which I'm sure is spectacular, but the game is fun for just the single player challenges as well.

Plus I made a narwhal that looked like a cat stuck in sushi, what more could you want?!?!?

Starwhal is a very silly local multiplayer fighting game with many interesting gamemodes. This game is the only game that I know of with flying space narwhals. I love this game because of its local multiplayer and pvp functions aswell as the wiered controls and physics. Starwhal will always be my favorite space-narwhal game.

This is a game you can play with friends, even if they don't game. If you are having people over, this is a great ice-breaker.

I don't think skill plays a massive part in this game. Everyone can enjoy it. It is just plain fun. Get 4 controllers, 3 friends, and go! Would definitely recommend

Great game, great developers.

Met these guys at Evo 2014, they were super cool and everyone had a blast playing the demo.

Bought it for more fun with my friends who didn't go to the convention. I would highly recommend this game on console, or anywhere that you have gamepads and can do multiplayer with your friends locally.

Great game, one of the most fun, and innocently competitive games I've played for a while. Excellent for local multiplayer.


Edit: This game has no online multiplayer because the developers tried to simulate how narwhals actually fight eachother and move through space. This required a large investment in a powerful physics engine that is NOT compatible with online game modes.

This is a local multiplayer gem that even your non gaming friends can enjoy. Extremely accessible, great variety in game modes, and gives the feeling that anyone could win. Highly recommended.

"Hey guys, do you want to play Just the Tip with me?"
"..." *exchange of worried looks*
"It's cool! Let me show it to you!" *faces falling stoic*
Then I loaded up the game and within minutes everyone was screaming, fist bumping, high fiving and cussing each other out.

It's simple and extremely fun. Easy to jump into and easy to compete with anyone else already familiar with the game.

This game is the best local competitve game since Smash Bros on N64. Booze doesn't even need to be consumed for it to be fun. It does make for a good drinking game though.

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!
