Swinging Platformer Whipseey Bounces To Switch This Fall!

SYDNEY, NSW – April 10, 2019 – Whipseey and the Lost Atlas, the whipping and swinging retro platformer from developer Daniel A. Ramirez and publisher Blowfish Studios, leaps onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC in Q3 2019.

After discovering a magical book, a young boy named Drew is whisked away to Whipseeyland, where he transforms into Whipseey, the pink, whip-wielding hero of this bright, colorful world. With the help of Princess Alyssa, Whipseey embarks on a quest to recover magical orbs that possess the power to return him home.

Whip or jump on enemies standing in the way and collect the magic gems they leave behind. Find an impassable chasm? Hold down the jump button and use the whip as a helicopter to travel further. Use swing points to fling Whipseey from one far-flung location to another and bounce off enemies to reach impossible heights.

Inspired by classic 2D platformers, Whipseey and the Lost Atlas is a challenging throwback to a golden age filled with picturesque levels, a relaxing soundtrack, memorable boss fights, and vivid pixel art courtesy of Super Crate Box and Luftrausers artist Roy Nathan De Groot.

Fans of indie 2D platformers have been following Whipseey’s development for the past two years through the game’s active Twitter account, providing valuable feedback, seeing the art redesign, and the renaming of the game from Whip Master after a cloning incident.

“Developing my first commercial release has been a wild journey. We’ve battled through it all, from other teams cloning our work to being forced to retrace our steps after months of backup files became corrupted,” said Daniel Ramirez, creator, Whipseey and the Lost Atlas. “But now we’re nearing the end of the tunnel and I’m excited to finally share Whipseey with the world.”

Whipseey and the Lost Atlas releases in Q3 2019 for consoles and PC with English language support.
