What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Narwhal Heist is heavily designed around player feedback. As such, we would love to broaden our audience during the development cycle to implement user feedback as much as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Narwhal Heist to be in early access for approximately two or three months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Currently, the early access version of Narwhal Heist contains the following:

  • Five levels
  • 32 achievements
  • In-game leaderboards for every level
  • Five special "challenge mode" variations of each level for more adept players
  • A simple in-game item shop where the player can spend their earned cash to buy upgrades

As development continues, we would like to improve each of these areas. Ideally, the full release will contain 8 story levels and a currently undecided number of side missions, over 50 achievements, an in-game level editor, an an expanded, in-depth shop system.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current early access build of Narwhal Heist is in late beta; it is fully playable but missing a few levels at the end. The experience should be rather smooth and enjoyable, though there are occasional glitches and bugs.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“During the early access period, Narwhal Heist will be available at 50% of its launch price. After launch, we plan to increase the price. We have no plans to increase the price further after this point.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Within our closed beta, we have integrated our players into every aspect of the development process. Levels are heavily iterated upon based on user feedback, with things in mind such as speedrunning, achievement hunting, and replayability; mechanics are adjusted and reworked based on user experience; bugs are fixed according to player reports, and so forth. By opening to early access, we are able to involve a larger community in this feedback process than any small community we could have within a closed beta.”

About This Game

This game is no longer being developed. As a result, it has been made free to play.

Narwhal Heist is an odd, comical first-person stealth-platformer game about a narwhal breaking bad. As secret agent Wally the Narwhal, you must rob houses, break into stores, and complete other various contracts in order to collect money to save your family. Professor Wigglywams, an ex-spy and notorious criminal, has kidnapped your wife and son for a $5,000,000 ransom. Your mysterious partner-in-crime, an unnamed agent, will provide you with contracts and information - but it's up to you to complete them.

  • You're a Narwhal, Wally - your horn is a blessing and a curse. It allows you to reach high up or distant objects, but be careful, because even slight contact with a fragile object will cause it to shatter instantly, leading to your arrest. Between contracts, you stay in a fish tank since you still need water to survive. Because of this, you always show up to contracts soaking wet - and wet means slippery.

  • Comical stealth - Being spotted by cameras, motion detectors, or people will result in your cover being blown and you being apprehended. Breaking anything (and believe me, there is a lot to break) with your horn or body will result in immediate arrest. With these two drawbacks, your goal will not be an easy one to achieve.

  • Seven base contracts - Throughout seven base contracts, you can earn money, gain experience, and inch your way closer to success. From your first house robbing to taking down Wigglywams Inc., each contract brings its own unique mechanics, obstacles, and objectives for you to encounter.

    Note: During the early access period, some levels may not be available. All seven levels will be available upon official release.

  • Black Market - Come on, you didn't think there were only seven contracts, did you? In addition to new side contracts, you can buy upgrades, new game modes, and cosmetics in the Black Market using the money you've earned from previous heists.

    Note: During the early access period, many Black Market features may not be available (including contracts, game modes, and cosmetics). An in-depth Black Market system will be available upon official release.

We know there's a large community out there determined to torture themselves in meticulously completing games in the quickest amount of time possible. Because of this, speedrunning is more than just an afterthought in Narwhal Heist. The levels and mechanics have been designed with speedrunning in mind, so that with enough time and dedication, even the toughest of these skill-based levels can be mastered.
