From Press Release:
Salzburg, Austria, 24. January 2023 – The colorful puzzle adventure WHALIEN – Unexpected Guests is now available on PC. The debut title of the Austrian-based studio Forbidden Folds tasks players with saving a mechanical whale and fighting off slimy invaders.
Players take on the role of Ernest Hemingwhale, the sole remaining inhabitant of Fin, the mechanical whale. Fin is not only Ernest’s home but also his close friend. When mysterious and dangerous Squiddies begin taking over Fin’s body, he doesn’t hesitate to take down the slimy threats. The origin of the mischievous little beings is not the only secret to discover. The mechanical whale is filled with little details and even more unexpected guests, the Springpeople. Whatever they are up to remains to be seen.
Ernest must use both his wits and special gloves and pearls – appropriately named Mr. Push and Mrs. Pull – to manipulate objects in the environment, solve puzzles, and send the Squiddies packing. Through unique, vibrant, and colorful environments, players delve deep into the inner workings of Fin, meet loveable characters, and help protect not only Ernest’s home but also his friend.
WHALIEN- Unexpected Guests is a short but sweet adventure game about friendship. Players can now meet the lovable characters, discover a vibrant world and go on a Fin-tastic adventure on Steam.
