Jellies vs. Whales brings big sea battles in Q4

Here at TR, we mostly leave coverage of game announcements to gaming-centric publications. Today, however, we're making an exception for some reason. Greefish Productions has announced a new game called Jellies vs. Whales, a title that's porpoisedly raising the bar on in-game purchases. I wasn't aware that was something the world needed, but I'll let the trailer speak for itself.

Is this what you'd call subversive? I'll sea myself out…

Uh… as Calculon would say, I'm not familiar with the type of thing I'm seeing. For the YouTube-averse, the game apparently strives to pit its free-to-play "jelly" players in 100-to-1 grudge matches against its "whales"—players that have sunk money into an unapologetically pay-to-win marketplace. The contrived-sounding "shamelessly transparent" game's claims of "nothing is just cosmetic" and "no loot box nonsense" ought to make for some interesting discussions, at the very least.

If teaming up to battle overwhelming odds or ponying up to mercilessly crush all who oppose you sounds appealing, read more on the dev's blog. Jellies vs. Whales will be released in Q4 of a curiously-unspecified year.

    Nice idea but with graphics and game play apparently on-par with a early 90’s flash game I don’t see a very bright future for this.

      Success would be a fluke.

      Don’t count the devs out just yet, though.

      Wow, did you have Flash in the early 90’s?

        No, no. You don’t get it. He had Flash when he [i<]was[/i<] in his early 90s.

    Dolphins aren’t whales
    Orcas are dolphins too

      They’re all fish.

        Whales are not fish. They’re marine mammals. They have lungs and breathe air.

          They also give birth and have mammary glands.

          Sigh. Must I taint my jokes with a smiley?

          [quote<]Whales are not fish.[/quote<] As opposed to dolphins? 😀

          That’s what biologists think. Don’t listen to them while preparing lunch.

          They all taste the same to me

        I upvoted you while hating myself for doing it. That was brilliant, yet cringe-worthy.

          Glad you approve. It was that or a boolean/baleen joke about toothed whales still being true whales.

    After all these years. Finally a game with graphics worthy of a Vega 64.

      More like ViRGE 64

        Hey, don’t talk smack about the Virtual Reality Game Engine. [url=https://youtu.be/A0ljjj4LTDc?t=644<]It runs GLQuake![/url<]

        Hopefully there’s more to this game below the surface.
