Chinese, do you speak it? (Update 31 - 7th May 2017)

Greetings Travellers!

It's been a long time since our latest update, so here is what has happened:

In October we ran out of money and were forced to find a more reliable source of income. Fortunately we were both able to take up work at Zaxis Games working on their upcoming Viking game called Fimbul.

Later in January Mathias became a father and Rune started working at Flashbulb Games on the game Trailmarkers. This has left us with little time for Utopia 9...

Award Nomination

However, in March we were nominated for an award in the category Best Danish Language Game in the danish game awards Spilprisen, which makes us very proud. Regardless of the outcome, we appreciate being taken serious by the industry and being recognized for our hard work, even if we have only been two guys working on the game for most part.

TV Interview
The day after being nominated, we were interviewed for an Indie Game episode of the danish television program Troldspejlet. This episode later aired on national television the 9th of April. It's a program well known by most danes, so we were naturally thrilled and it was fun to take part.

New Trailer & Artwork
Furthermore Level Up REACH have finished their work on our new trailer and it is available on our Steam Store page and on Youtube. Check it out!

The Update
- Thanks to Vun aka. WW H @vunkoooo, we are happy to announce Chinese translations of the game, both in traditional and simplified chinese. Hopefully this will make the game available to even more people to enjoy!
- This update includes a performance fix for when many mutants are idle off screen. This could introduce bugs related to their animation, so please report any regressions.
- Fixed an audio-bug when playing in local co-op.

The Future
Because of the limited financial success, the future of Utopia 9 is uncertain. There are always features and platforms we would have liked to introduce however we are very proud with what we have achieved and are extremely happy with having had the opportunity to make Utopia 9. We'd like to thank all who have taken part of our journey!

So, until next time, have a great vacation!

“Whalegun’s first entry into indie game development is a solid winner.”
8.5/10 – Techraptor

Just Updated

One will do. Two is a crew, but four now THAT is hardcore!
Utopia 9 introduces a brand new 4 Player co-op update!




Utopia 9's newest update is a big one and features not 1, not 2, not 3, but a whoopin' 4 player local co-op!
So gather your friends and fetch your game controllers, this vacation will be a BLAST!

You can now play the game 1 to 4 players in local co-op mode. As more players were introduced we found certain things had to be improved. As an added benefit this means the existing 2 player local co-op mode has also been improved significantly as a result.
