Full release coming September 29th!

Hey cool cats,

Big news! STARWHAL is coming out of Early Access and transitioning into the full release very soon!


Full release of STARWHAL on Steam is launching September 29th!
It’s been a while since we started up the Early Access back in February. Thanks to everyone who has been with us since then (and even before!), and everyone who’s joined us for the ride!

As some of you remember, we started the Early Access with these features:
  • 2 versus game modes
  • 3 worlds
  • 10 versus arenas
  • AI players
  • 12 song soundtrack
  • 48 costumes
  • 1 burrito

Let’s have a look at what’s in the full release:
  • 4 versus game modes
  • 5 worlds
  • 25 versus arenas
  • AI players
  • 17 song soundtrack
  • 90 costumes
    And all this totally new stuff!
  • 32 single player challenge levels
    • 16 obstacle levels
    • 16 target levels
    • Race to get Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum medals
  • Leaderboards to track challenge level times and your worth as a human being
  • Ghost replays to play against - beat your rivals and gloat to your friends!
  • 24 Achievements
  • Customizable match rules
  • Redesigned UI for game status and menus
  • Radical new post FX including bloom, distortion waves, and more
  • Steam trading cards
  • 1 burrito (okay, this one's not new, but don’t fix what ain’t broke)

Shazam!

Thanks so much for everyone who gave us feedback during development - we really appreciate it! The game has grown into something much bigger and better than we anticipated and we couldn’t have done it without you and all our loyal backers on Kickstarter.


Price change
With all these new features, we’ve decided that we’ll be increasing the price to $14.99 for the full release, with a 15% launch sale discount for the first week. For anyone who hasn’t picked the game up yet, you still have until September 29th to buy it at the original $9.99 price!


This release isn't the end! We've already got ideas and plans for post-release content updates that will be totally free. Stay tuned!

See you, space cowboys and girls!

O tej grze

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: Just the Tip 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: Just the Tip 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: Just The Tip

"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

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!

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.

I got the game back at FanExpo 2014 for $10 I had very little knowlage of what I was buying. I saw some people playing so I took a risk and bought it. Best risk I've ever taken. I love it. Its fun, and you can use it with smaller children if you get some controllers. Good single player to, Im exited for it to have its full release. Good luck Breakfall mrmeow2000

I have seena few negative review that talk about the impracise controls, i would dispute them by saying that the controls are, if anything, too precise. The twitch of a thumbstick unerringly points the tip of the starwhal horn in a new fabulous direction, but only the horn. New players will need to get used to this. You can't turn the whale, just the tip o fthe horn. Once you understand this conept, the controls are actually fairly simple and precise. The gameplay is like a rainbow that has been crushed into crysaline form and mainlined through your eyeballs, it is fast paced and frantic couch coop in it purinst sense. I often throw this game up on a big projecter and it always draws crowds. People will scream when the horns start getting close to the enemy hearts and the camera zooms in for a slow motion shot.
This game is absolutely amazing when ti works. Luckely it works more often than not, but there are still a few issues, such as frequent lag on levels with moving parts, that keep from being the best game ever.

If you have friends that often come over to your house to play games, then you should definitely buy this game and here's why. Up to 4players with controller support, can play on the same computer (maybe hooked up to a big ♥♥♥ tv, a recommendation), it has fun and addictive gameplay that will hook you and your friends up all night playing it, flying around as a narwhal and being high and maybe try to kill your friends with your horn (it's how it should be played atleast). You can customize the looks of your narwhal, and when you play it, it really gets intense! If you love flying narwhals x1-4 then you'll love this game!
CO-OP GAME OF THE YEAR, WHAT YEAR? EVERY YEAR!
Disclaimer! If you have no friends you can only play against bots, so buy yourself a friend!

I brought Starwhal to a LAN party and it was easily the crowd favorite.

This game has simple controls, great music, beautiful levels, and fun gameplay that is perfect for a couch co-op party game. The single player challenge levels are also well designed and challenging.

People who are complaining about the controls simply don’t get it, that’s part of the game. Even after a lot of practice with the challenge levels, you will still flail about sometimes and that is part of the fun when you are playing with your friends.

Amazing. Loved it. Best party game out there, in my opinion. xD My friends and I play this game whenever they visit. When there are two people left and only one heart each, it gets pretty fudging intense. xD 10/10 Would never play this alone. C:
