  • Description

    Burly Men at Sea

    One of TIME's top ten games of the year, Burly Men at Sea is a folktale about a trio of large, bearded fishermen who step away from the ordinary to seek adventure.

    Set in the waters of early 20th-century Scandinavia, the game's story branches through a series of encounters with creatures from folklore. You play as storyteller and wayfinder, shaping the narrative around three ungainly heroes. Play through once for a single tale, then set sail again to uncover paths to new adventures.

    "5/5" - TIME

    "It's whimsical and charming; a real breath of fresh air." - Paste Magazine

    BRANCHING STORY: Play through multiple choice-driven adventures, each designed to be completed in a single sitting.

    INNOVATIVE CONTROLS: Shape the narrative through a unique, draggable viewport and your interactions within it.

    PLAYFUL AESTHETIC: Colorful art style with handcrafted animation, set to a whimsical original soundtrack inspired by the game’s Scandinavian setting.

    Burly Men at Sea is the second game from husband-and-wife team Brain&Brain, developed during their own adventures as nomads and erstwhile farmhands.

    It got a few plays in our house. If you've got a half hour to burn, and want to do it in a chill way, ending with a smile...then take an adventure with the Burly Men.
