Excerpt: Okabu has come from some creative minds. Players take on the role of Cloud Whales. Part cloud, and part whale. I am not joking about that either. You float around, collect water, rain it down, or spit it out. Then you can start to carry passengers who will grant additional powers.

Excerpt: Common tasks in many of today's video games generally include shooting dudes in the face, stomping on baddies, and hacking away at enemies with a sword of some sort. Recycling and cleaning up the environment aren't your typical video game objectives.
Conclusion: Charles Schulz probably never illustrated any happy Cloud Whales, but if he did they would probably look like Okabu’s chief protagonists. With bright colors and a merry atmosphere flooding positivity and joy through every channel, it's hard to look away.
Excerpt: Les géniaux créateurs de la série Rolando reviennent avec leur nouvelle création : Okabu. Avant tout destiné à sensibiliser les plus jeunes aux problématiques environnementales, ce puzzle-game devrait proposer des arguments susceptibles de plaire aux petits comme aux grands.
