    Hello all,
    My name is Guillaume loquin, i'm a french 3d character artist.
    I wanted to start a devlog about a little game i'm doing during my freetime. Run-A-Whale is an infinite runner with simple touch control and a unique texture-less aesthetics.
    I'm working on it for almost 3 months now but my time is limited so the game will evolve slowly.

    Key Features :

    -Simple but deep gameplay.
    -Unique visual style.
    -Day & night cycle.
    -Customization.
    -Pirates ! :D.

    more to come...

    Thanks a lot, the game is not ready for testing yet.

    I need to set a tweeter account and a blog, but for now, you can follow the development here or on TigSource.

    little update today, i did a first integration of the seagulls :

    Looks delightful.

    IMHO....Would have been nice to see jumping fish for the whale to "eat" rather than coins to collect.

    Still will be a must have though! Looks fantastic!

    thank you, i've already planed to add fishes as special boost items.



    Today i started a new "random mini boss event" with a giant octopuss :

    Lovely last screenshot with that octopus. The ambient gives me a fuzzy warm feeling i had with Alto's Adventure.

    Agree with "coins again", boring and not an innovative decision, sorry. I also would rather eat little fishes, plancton etc. instead, and for boosts some little squids, baby sharks, wooden legs...or directly some little Captain Ahab's.

    And a big yes to tight controls. Runners stand or fall with it, you know that.

    Keep up the good work, cheers.

    Thanks for your comment, i will think about something else for the coins, but it needs to be very identifiable...

    I made some progress with the octopus :

    Art style is really nice. Motion on the Whale looks good too.

    This looks awesome dude. I'll definitely be checking this out
    Are you an indie, or do you have your own team for this ?
