Halo: Out With a Whimper, abbreviated H:OWaW, was a side-scrolling fan game planned to be developed by TriBlox Game Studios. The game was neither endorsed nor supported by either 343 Industries or Bungie, and the game's production was eventually canceled.
The game was set around the events of Halo 2 and Halo 3 on the human mining colony Atlas as it comes under siege by the Covenant Loyalists, who are looking for something hidden beneath the planet's surface. Not much else is known other than that the Flood will make a major appearance and would serve a pivotal role in the game's story.
The game is centered around five-man special operations team of SPARTAN-III supersoldiers, better known as the Team Olympus. The following are the current members of the Team Olympus:
- Michael B19: Current Team Olympus leader
- Logan B002: Heavy weapons specialist
- Allison B263: Intelligence/Sniper
- Ozscar A318: Assault/CQC
- Theo A016: Tactician/Explosive Munitions
The weapons in H:OWaW vary greatly. The game features every weapon seen in Halo 3, as well as some from Halo: Reach and some custom weapons, such as the "Shredder", a Brute sniper rifle that fires explosive rounds.
The soundtrack for H:OWaW is produced entirely by Jonathan Churchill.
