Whipseey | Waterfall and Crabs

Whipseey and the Lost Atlas, developed by Daniel A. Ramirez, is set for release in the third quarter of 2019. Play as Drew, a young boy transformed into the titular Whipseey as he is sucked into a magical book. It is a retro platformer revolving around whipping and swinging to get to platform to platform. The systems planned are Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game itself has been in developed for two years, with pixel art done by Roy Nathan De Groot. The pixel art, personally, seems reminiscent of Kirby spritework.

Fans of indie platformers such as Whipseey have gave feedback over the past two years, allowing Daniel A. Ramirez to polish the game up. It had an art redesign as well as a rename from Whip Master. Pricing and exact release date has yet to be disclosed. For more information, there is the press release down below.

Whipseey and the Lost Atlas Swings to Console and PC in Q3 2019
SYDNEY, NSW – April 10, 2019 – Whipseey and the Lost Atlas, the whipping and swinging retro platformer from developer Daniel A. Ramirez and publisher Blowfish Studios, leaps onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC in Q3 2019.
After discovering a magical book, a young boy named Drew is whisked away to Whipseeyland, where he transforms into Whipseey, the pink, whip-wielding hero of this bright, colorful world. With the help of Princess Alyssa, Whipseey embarks on a quest to recover magical orbs that possess the power to return him home.
Whip or jump on enemies standing in the way and collect the magic gems they leave behind. Find an impassable chasm? Hold down the jump button and use the whip as a helicopter to travel further. Use swing points to fling Whipseey from one far-flung location to another and bounce off enemies to reach impossible heights.
Inspired by classic 2D platformers, Whipseey and the Lost Atlas is a challenging throwback to a golden age filled with picturesque levels, a relaxing soundtrack, memorable boss fights, and vivid pixel art courtesy of Super Crate Box and Luftrausers artist Roy Nathan De Groot.
Fans of indie 2D platformers have been following Whipseey’s development for the past two years through the game’s active Twitter account, providing valuable feedback, seeing the art redesign, and the renaming of the game from Whip Master after a cloning incident.
“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,” said Daniel Ramirez, creator, Whipseey and the Lost Atlas. “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 releases in Q3 2019 for consoles and PC with English language support. For more info, follow the game’s Twitter, and visit Blowfish Studios’ official website. [Writer’s Note, Blowfish seems to not have information on the game yet on their site…]
