That's awesome atmospheric game! The mechanics is so fresh and everything looks polished. I'm looking forward for full release! Thanks for job, guys.

Does the shovel do anything yet?  Feels like I've completed everything else and I couldn't find a use for it.  And is Rae supposed to have any dialogue?  She had some dots above her head when I first approached, but then they disappeared and I haven't been able to talk to her.


Yes, you can use shovel in one of the quests. (you can find the treasure with it. first you need to find the bottle with treasure map and than dig out the treasure)

That's strange! Rae should have at least one dialogue!

Thanks, thought I had all the bottles but I missed that one. I found it now!

Please tell me what did u think about the game? What did u like? Fav quests? What do you think this game is lacking now?

The most satisfying quest was giving Cpt Skelly their body, and I enjoyed all the little fun bits like the "do not open" chest and the normal cow. The most frustrating part was losing coins on every hard bump, especially if they land in ways that make them tricky to retrieve like in between characters and objects.


Thank you! Glad u like Cpt Skelly hehe.
I would for on coins drop more and would make it more fun!


I found Rae's dialogue bug! Would fix it in the next update!

It's a lovely little game, except I have a little issue... I put the skeleton body to the possum because I didn't know about the skeleton head yet and I thought I could just take the body after but nope, I can't pick it up anymore. Did I misunderstand anything? 
Also, I understand the mouse-only controls are very much intentional but it is a bit too difficult + sometimes I spin the wheel too fast and it makes me motion-sick. (my problem ig)
Either way, fantastic little demo even if I can't do all the quests, I can't wait for the full release! :)


oh it's just another bug :( I would fix it! Thank you for playing! Glad you like it!


Please make it for linux

I would!

It looks like it will be a fun game.

I'm not sure if it is intentional, but I do recommend fixing the text to be capitalized at the beginning of sentences, change the "u" to you and making sure punctuation is correct.

I used have a bad habit with shorthand, and it took a lot to break that habit, but it's worth it!

Thank you! Yeap, it was  intentional but I understand that sometimes it can be a lot for player!


A very cute little game! Whalevile genuinely feels like a very surprisingly comfy place with it's own nooks and crannies to see.

The controls feel smooth with a tiny bit of quirkyness, and the art is beautiful. Looking forward to more!

Thank you for playing! Glad you had good time in Whaleville!


The people in Whaleville are all very unique and made for a great gaming experience!

The controls are a little difficult, but once you get used to them, it's fun to move around as you wish!

Also, when I was run over by the Tremble boat, there was a big accident where the boat went under and then capsized. Video 18:10~.

My favorite characters are Dr. Bloom and the Rat Blacksmith, as I mentioned in the comments section of the video.

But I like every character because they all have their own personality.

Thank you for playing! I'm really happy that u liked it! 


Is a cute game I like it aand I like the aesthetics and the vibes and its chill and nice and manliestdev seal of approval

Glad that Manliest Dev aprroved my game! Thank u!


The soundtrack in this game is absolutely amazing! Wonder what genius produced the score

oh! I thinks it's you!


This game just came on the right time for me since I broke my left arm and being able to play just with the mouse has been nice!

Get well soon! 
What did u like the most about the demo?


The mechanics worked flawlessly and the setting is charming and wholesome, if I had to complain about one thing it would be that loosing that many coins on impact feels too punishing at times and having to pick them up can become tedious in my opinion, but overall I had a good time and I've been sharing it with my friends!


Got u! I already made some fixes to the coins drop mechanic. Now you will lose coins only on high speed!


What was your favorite quest?


The skeleton one, idk it felt nice to help someone in trouble find himself, literally and metaphorically in this case. I also really liked the possum one and the fishing one


Cool! Thank u for answering!


a wonderful lil experience so far, can't wait to explore the whale more xD

Glad u like it! What part did u enjoy the most?


i really liked the wacky characters and little mini games/tasks



Very cool!
Will it be available for mobile phones?

I would think about it!
It's perfect for the phones actually. If the game got some attention we would def work on mobile version.


very cute game, i approve it !!


thank u for approving my little game :3


Awesome design, cute characters and great atmosphere! Definitely want more content >_<

Working on it!


Great stuff, really love the style, tried to do/find everything I could. 😅 Didn't find a use for the shovel, wasn't sure on that. 🤔 Ended up with 69 coins found total. 🧐 Only things that I think could use a small tweak is making the coin loss to be more momentum based and having the option to turn the wings on/off.(Like maybe they get pinned/sort some of clip goes over them when off so they can't open up). Looking forward to seeing where it goes down the line! 👍 


good ideas! I like it and I would think about that!
Thank u for playing!

Also about shovel
u need to find a map and dig there hehe

I also noticed that last pages didn't open for u so I would fix that too!

also I see how much u struggle with coins dropping so speed based coins drop is coming in the next upd too


Such a game! There're no bugs, check it!

Personally, I love how programmer's work is done ;) 

agreed dude


It was definitely a whale of a time.

Loved exploring the world and coming across it's inhabitants


Thank u! Glad u like it :3


Many coins. Such adventure. Very peaceful. 10/10 whales. 

I need more coins!
