Taking place entirely in a digestive system, Gutwhale is a 'finite roguelite' action game about managing your limited ammo in a very cramped space. Stuffed Wombat, the developer, said the only reason the game actually exists is that they were fired from their job due to Coronavirus so they took it as the perfect opportunity to finally release a game with help from Franek and Britt Brady.

"Descend down into the guts, try to keep your ammo close, unlock weird hats and get crushed by a van! While Gutwhales levels are randomly generated and can be played forever, the game has a definite ending that you can reach in 1 - 7 hours, depending on your experience with similar games!"

It has a short and sweet feature list:

  • Smooth Gameplay
  • 3 Areas with unique enemies
  • Game-changing Hats to unlock
  • Full Controller Support
  • Beating the game is only the beginning of the end

Currently, the Linux and macOS versions are only available on itch.io as they haven't had enough testing. I've played it for a good while today and it's a lot of fun and very challenging. Works perfectly with keyboard input, although one button prompt on the Logitech F310 gamepad was wrong as it says B to respawn when it's X. Apart from that, it does work great!

Find the Linux version on itch.io (remember the itch open source client) and also check out the Steam page.
