Flipper finally gets a launch date

Posted by Rebecca Gunn

February 22nd for goldfish hunting fun

Some of you may remember Flipper, an indie title being developed by Goodbye Galaxy Games. The game features a boy traveling though various worlds trying to rescue his pet Goldfish named (surprisingly) Flipper.

We've been following the title since its early inception (in part thanks to Hugo Smits and his blog which documents his experience with developing the title, well worth a read). We've seen it morph into a full fledged game over time and now finally Flipper has a set release date, in North America at least! From February 22nd you'll be able to experience this unique-looking title.

The game features 20 levels set over 4 worlds with colourful visuals, powerups that include the ability to blast your surroundings and build on them and a disgruntled-looking goldfish to boot.

As always we'll be on hand to deliver our verdict on this title as soon as possible. We've also got an interview with GBG's Hugo Smits himself to come in the near future so stay tuned!

Yeah, there was an interview on another site as well where they mentioned that they couldn't keep the $2 price point.

Well, I'm happy. I just hope that there's nothing good coming out next week to suck away my points.

Ooh, never seen this before. I might try this. They say it's 200 points, it's even on the top left box. But I'm gonna wait for further confirmation.

I strongly suggest looking for new screenshots.
Even Pong had more to offer than this game, judging from them.
