Reviews

“It’s a tiny-but-then-not-tiny, lovely thing with so much character and a wonderful sense of adventure.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Artful interplay of visual minimalism, waggish writing and hilarious but also haunting sound effects generated by gorgeous a cappella voices.”
5/5 – TIME

“The closest thing I’ve played to an interactive fairy-tale.”
The Telegraph

About This Game

Burly Men at Sea is a folktale about a trio of large, bearded fishermen who step away from the ordinary to seek adventure.

With gameplay halfway between a visual novel and a point-and-click adventure, the branching story carries its ungainly heroes into waters where lurk creatures from Scandinavian folklore and other misadventures. You play as storyteller and wayfinder, shaping a custom tale that begins again where it ends.

FEATURES
