And so it spreads further: following DGPH’s first light foray, Nathan J’s full on fantastic web work, and — if you can more or less count it in the same way — Rolito’s jump in with Patapon, the latest vinyl toy artist making the video game leap appears to be Patrick Morgan and his effortlessly lovable character Whaleboy.
The anonymous overseer of the superannuation blog — he’s the one that tirelessly digs up pre-release trademark information and scours resumes for hints at un-announced games past and future — has stumbled across a new trademark filing for Morgan’s character to be used in games.
Presumably this’ll be in conjunction with the cartoon deal Nickelodeon signed back in 2006 (though little more has been said about the show since).
Superannuation’s work usually thanklessly goes uncredited by the mainstream games blogs, but since he dedicated this find specifically to me and my ‘purportedly hipster‘ ways, I obviously can’t help but give him his full due in reverse.
Found: Whaleboy trademark [superannuation]
