The team at Whalegun are big fans of rogue-like games such as Nuclear Throne and Alien Shooter, and FTL! So, after many years of developing smart device apps, in the shadow of the PC gaming master race, the lure of great controls and unlimited graphic power became too much! Whalegun was founded in early 2015 by Mathias Severin and Rune Holm as a means to make the games they were truly passionate about. To maximize "awesome per second" preconceived notions of store integration, in-app purchases and pay walls was completely disregarded. All energy was instead channelled into the gaming experience, the juicy feedback and the colorful details. It took us 1½ years to fulfil or dream and Utopia 9 - A Volatile Vacation is now released on Steam!
