Whateverland is a hand-painted adventure game for Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to the creativity of developer Caligari Games. Due to release this year with a debut on Steam.
Caligari Games has announced their upcoming title, Whateverland. Since you can expect a hand-painted point-n-click adventure. The games also comes with a branching dialogue system. Plus non-linear gameplay and various endings. Complete with a unique in-game turn-based strategy sports simulator. And the release is planned in mid-2020. So naturally, I had to ask about Linux support. Here’s the email reply.
We are using Unity Engine. And yes, we plan to make a Linux port. But it’s too early to tell when that will be, but
definitely by release.
Whateverland – Announcement Teaser
Whateverland will tell the story of a skilled thief named Vincent. Who decides to steal a precious necklace from a mansion of a lonely old woman, Beatrice. His plan would have gone perfectly well. But when she catches him red-handed. She turns out to be an ancient powerful witch.
As a punishment, Beatrice sends him to the parallel world she has created. As a result, the witch traps those she considers her enemies. The first inhabitants of this bizarre world called it Whateverland. And since then it kind of stuck. Vincent teams up with a weird guy named Nick. So together they are working to find a way out.
- A not so classic point-n-click.
- You can steal stuff. Or not – it’s your call.
- Your actions define the ending in Whateverland. And what people think of you.
- The most annoying sidekick in the universe. (We still love you, Nick)
- You can talk to people. Not sure they’re gonna talk to you though.
- Turn-based strategy sport simulator included in the game. With magic.
- Loads of mini-games. At least 2.
- Music recorded with a real sextet. How sexy is that?
- Beautiful hand-drawn art style.
In addition to many mini-games, Whateverland also includes a unique board game called “Bell & Bones”. The developers themselves describe it as a child of rugby and quidditch, that desperately wants to become chess.
