For some this may seen a little non pc, but it is only a game, so please, if you are offended by the thoughs of whale hunting please don't read the info or download this game. Thank you.
The following game was created by the same developer as Droneswarm.
In Australia there are broadcasts of Japanese whaling ships hunting whales with their explosive harpoons. They claim it is for scientific research, and that selling the meat only offsets the cost of whaling. Now that might not be the most compelling reason to play a game, but it doesn’t make much sense without it. You see, you are a Japanese whaler and are hunting whales. In the interest of science, you must bring back as much meat as possible. Destroying the whales is imperative for this research to continue.
Along the way, you can increase your haul by doing various scientific things. Such as collecting large sums of meat in one go, you can go from being simply “scientific” to being “mega scientific” or even “hyper scientific”. If you perform “species combos” by killing two or more of the same type of whale in a row, you increase your whaling profit. Remember, rare whales are worth more, so if you happen to spot the elusive white whale – don’t hesitate to open fire.
It’s a dark game, which features typically Australian dry humour. Admittedly, it’s not for everyone and it does contain incredible amounts of blood. However, I doubt there’s a more enjoyable socially challenging game around today. Download it and make your own decisions.
