Blowfish Studios and Daniel Ramirez have announced that Whipseey and the Lost Atlas will release on Nintendo Switch, a whipping and swinging retro platformer that stars a young boy called Drew.
After discovering a magical book, he finds himself in the bright and colorful Whipseeyland where he transforms into Whipseey. With help from Princess Alyssa, this pink, whip-wielding hero must recover magical orbs that contain the power that’s needed to return him home.
Your quest will see you whip or jump on the enemies that stand in your way, or, when faced with an impassable chasm, you can hold down the jump button to use the whip as a helicopter to slow your descent. And then swing points can be used to fling Whipseey from one far-flung location to another.
“Developing my first commercial release has been a wild journey. We’ve battled through it all, from other teams cloning our work to being forced to retrace our steps after months of backup files became corrupted,” explains game creator, Daniel Ramirez. “But now we’re nearing the end of the tunnel and I’m excited to finally share Whipseey with the world.”
Whipseey and the Lost Atlas will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q3 2019.
