ustwo to Launch Whale Trail Game for iPad & iPhone Tomorrow

UK-based digital design studio ustwo (opens in new tab) will debut a new game tomorrow called Whale Trail which is described as a "beautiful, endless and colourful runner", and is a one touch game where you interact with beautifully designed whales (you know, the ones with Manga-like eyes).

In the game, you have to keep Willow the Whale flying in the sky, collecting floating Blubbles to feed its rainbow coloured trail and dodging angry Thunder Bros while avoiding the evil Barry Von Barry. We wonder whether ustwo chose the title Whale Trail because it rhymes with Fail Whale.

The sound track of the game has been produced by Welsh Musician Gruss Rhys who once played in a band called Super Furry Animals. There's a great article about the creative process and the story behind Whale Trail over at Computer Arts (opens in new tab).

And in the meantime, you can watch a short trailer of the Whale Trail game below.
