“Nantucket brings to life the golden age of whaling and the story of Moby Dick in a tight package that’s perfect for anyone who is a fan of history, a good management sim or the story of Moby Dick.”
4/5 – Hardcore Gamer

“The fiction elevates everything, to be honest, and it allows the interaction of some fairly straightforward systems to come together and create surprisingly tense stories.”
Eurogamer

“Nantucket has an excellent physical feel to it, with its straining harpoon ropes, clattering dice, and creaking wood sounds. I got off to a rocky start in it but soon found myself completely engrossed.”
Kotaku
