Whale's Tale

by Nocturnal - Jam Entry

All art (except whale and player character) created by me. Whale is by Janpec and Mergun is by Mutte. Skybox by Hedgehog Team. Object of the game is to hitch a ride with the Whale and he tells you a tale of his adventures. Will be further developed with stories, but everything else works.

your download isnt showing in a webframe, either it is an windows build...

you have to make a shared folder in google drive, and upload the html and the unity3d file, copy the link of the html file.

extract the shared file-id, and forge a link like this

What's the goal of the game?
It looks like I can't do anything except jumping on the whale.

Object of the game is to hitch a ride with the Whale, and he tells you a tale of his adventures. Will be further developed with stories, but everything else works. For those experiencing problems, I have embedded the link for the game simulation in the web page with the download. For best experience, right click and select Full Screen from the dropdown menu.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
