Game release: “Whateverland” (PC)

Caligari Games‘ humorous point-and-clicker Whateverland has more than one way to play it.

Classic adventure games usually rely on linear story progression and with only one solution, but in the case of Whateverland, thief Vincent, accompanied by ghost Nick, can decide if he wants to fall back on his old ways or not. After trying to steal a necklace from old lady Beatrice, he finds out that she’s a witch and as she’s not particularly happy about his actions, she sends him to the titular parallel world from which the duo try to escape.

One can either steal from the Whateverlanders or help them, which obviously has an impact on how they perceive Vincent. If one gets stuck, one can skip chapters of the story, but as there are always two ways to solve a puzzle or tackle a situation, it’s less likely that one becomes frustrated. From the looks of it, despite the non-linear nature, 19 mini-games, and even a turn-based strategy sport simulator boardgame included, it still feels like a great throwback to classic 90ies point-and-clickers, featuring some particularly nice hand-drawn art and fun voice acting.

The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, September 22, 2022, at 5 PM UTC.
