One of TIMEs top five 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. Named Best Story Game of 2016 by Rock, Paper, Shotgun, and nominee for Best 2D Visuals (Unity Awards 2016), SXSW Gamers Voice Award (2016), and Best Adventure Game/RPG (Intel Level Up 2016).
