Burly Men at Sea

by Brain&Brain

One of TIME’s top ten games of 2016, 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.

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.
