You are the most recent guest on Utopia 9, the best vacation planet the galaxy has to offer. Terraformed to give you the ultimate holiday. 

But when you arrive nothing is as promised: The environment is deadly, everything is buried in sand and the advertised bikini babes are nothing but mutated freaks! You must make your way through hordes of space mutants determined to take you out and snatch your loot. Can you survive the mutant onslaught? You must get off the planet so you can sue the travel agency.

History

The team at Whalegun are big fans of rogue-like games such as Nuclear Throne and Alien Shooter, and FTL! So, after many years of developing smart device apps, in the shadow of the PC gaming master race, the lure of great controls and unlimited graphic power became too much! Whalegun was founded in early 2015 by Mathias Severin and Rune Holm as a means to make the games they were truly passionate about. To maximize "awesome per second" preconceived notions of store integration, in-app purchases and pay walls was completely disregarded. All energy was instead channelled into the gaming experience, the juicy feedback and the colorful details. Now, the alpha phase is over and Utopia 9 - A Volatile Vacation is finally ready for Steam Early Access.
